Re: “Yelp and the Business of Extortion 2.0

I'm with Kate from S.F . I'd also join a class-action suit vs. yelp. I own a micro-business in the BayArea and have experienced the positive reviews deleted soon after posting (all written by non-regular yelp reviewers, w/c yelp does not place a whole lot of importance on). New positive reviews are shown below an older negative review (written by someone who has obviously never stepped into my office, probably a yelp employee, one of the 'Elite' reviewers). I have been asked to advertise on it but refused. Too expensive. Other bu owners in my field have had similar experiences w/ yelp. Since my page has been up, about 16 (all positive) reviews have disappeared. It now has just a handful of reviews. I will not take a phone call from the (415) area code. Mafia in the BayArea indeed.
