Re: “Yelp and the Business of Extortion 2.0

YELP creators - are genius !
They created way to make millions of dollars without any responsibility.
If you think that is fraud - blame not YELP creators, but special FILTER.
What is the filter ? Its secret formula by which negative or positive reviews
disappear, depends of somebody's interest. So, Yelp creators NOT responsible
of filter decision. How is filter work ? Its secret.
Even, if Yelp stop advertising - current filter do not make any sense.

Statistically for each 100 happy visitors must be one unhappy.
Statistically from 100 happy people only 5 make positive article, but
from 1 unhappy person we have 1 negative article.
I am agree that it make sense to design filter to sort legitimate
article to filter out friends, neighbors, relatives, competitors.
If somebody will create such filter, I think, he will deserve Nobel Price.
But Filter, designed by Yelp working in opposite direction. Filter
Formula kept in secret, that nobody can challenge it, but result is
in opposite direction.

After filtering out
5 Legitimate positive articles, on my page I have :
3 positive NOT legitimate articles from my daughter, son in law, and friend.
1 negative NOT legitimate article from competitor.
1 negative legitimate article from unhappy person.
Its a prove that filter do not work. Its not a filter. It must be put
off until somebody invent real filter.

YELP must be closed immediately.

They ruins more and more businesses every day .
