Re: “Yelp Extortion Allegations Stack Up

Thank you for your reporting! I am a big fan!!

I have been a Yelp user for about a year now, and have put in dozens of hours writing great reviews on restaurants, local businesses, etc. But a few months ago ALL my comments - good or bad - were removed from Yelp.

Coincidentally, I am the owner of Graphicwise, Inc. a design firm in Orange County, CA. I had a dozen or so great reviews by our clients, and I was proud of the fact that we were building a solid fan base. However, all our supporter comments were too erased!

I remember getting a sales call from Yelp a couple of weeks prior to this, and the person on the phone told me that I needed to accentuate my reviews with some paid advertising "because you never know.. one day you can have 20 reviews, and the next day they can all be gone because of our automated system removing certain comments... anyway, if you buy the advertising you can be rest assured that you will never be left in the dark".

I said no thank you... but what a coincidence!
