Re: “Yelp Bows to Pressure and Will Allow Biz Owners to Respond to Criticism - for Free

Yelp maintains that they are all about the consumer, yet it's the business owners they solicit for "sponsorship" and they actually call it being a "sponsor" of Yelp. Why would any business "sponsor" yelp when they are not supportive of the small business owner? They don't verify reviews, fact check, and they remove perfectly good reviews and will not explain why. I remember my kids were in college and they would ask if I wanted to "sponsor movie" Or "sponsor a vacation" and it was laughable. Just ask for the money! Don't mask it behind a softer version to solicit funds.

Still, they will not put into writing what they offer if you are a sponsor and that concerns me. Still they only "deal" on the phone. When you talkk to the Yelp sales staff one gets the distinct impression they are not on the "up and up" and I hope the small business people will continue to not be a sponser of Yelp.

Re: “Lawsuit Involving Yelp Moves Forward

I hope the dentist wins. People need to know if they make a review, it best be true, accurate, not slander or defamatory.

What this will do also is make people not sign their name to the review. A little hard to sue "Anonymous"

I personally think Yelp should be held liable if it's known to them that it's a false review and I'm guessing that is just a matter of time.

Re: “Is Yelp Suppressing Free Speech?

I would think that if a business or a non profit that is open to the public and voices a political agenda are fair game to criticism. They express their right and Yelp fans express thier opinion. Both have a right to have their voice heard. Since this place by my observation makes a living by feeding off of a part of society that will take the side of a rapist, approve of him taking 4 family members, fathers from their communities, I would think that Yelp or any group or any one person has a right to express themselves just as Uhuru house has.

There is a reason why my company has a policy of no political stickers, on windows, cars, cash registers. We keep that private because we feel if we voiced our political agenda, we could easily offend many of our customer base, not good for business.

Since Uhuru seems to be almost in the business of making issues a hot topic and siding with such a minority opinion, they are wide open and they can not be shocked, surprised or disappointed. The mistake Yelpers are making is giving this organization ANY attention at all since it appears to be exactly what they wanted. When you have a political agenda, any attention can be good attention so I'm sure they think this is all good.
