    Do you hold a grudge if say the local sub shop fucked up your order, so bad that you have to tell the world not to go there?

    Just wondering, what do you use Yelp for if you don't pay attention to the reviews?

    :jj: When I had to travel for work for about three months straight I got bored and started doing Yelp reviews on restaurants. I really tore into this one in some little podunk town and got an email back from the owner begging me to come back and eat for free. I felt kind of bad and did a follow-up saying I'd try them again. I used the hell out of those reviews to help choose a place to eat.

    When I read reviews, I take into consideration factual statements.. as in the food was cold. Not personal suggestions as I wouldnt reccomend this place to my worst enemy, or I wouldnt go there if I were you. Personal grudges show more of a revenge factor than anything, in my opinion.

    Yeah, you do have to weed out the stupid people. I tried to tell people exactly what I observed or experienced.

    Thats the other thing, 99% of the time there is no personal accountability, so its hard to take any of them seriously. They want their voice heard but are afraid to put their full name out there to back it.

    I just logged on and I use my real first name and last initial. Not really accountable but I'm really honest. I got a lol from this review that I did last year. This is the last paragraph of a review from a Chinese Buffet. Incidentally, the last Chinese buffet that I've been to.


    Lastly, I paid for my check and went into the bathroom. The bathroom was staggeringly filthy. I'm not going to describe it. I do not believe a bathroom can get in that shape in one day. A young man came in behind me. He took one look, put his hand over his mouth and walked out. When I left, he was still standing right outside of the bathroom holding his hand over his mouth. This place should be shut down and ordered to sanitize everything. If I had gone in there before or during my meal, I couldn't have eaten another thing.

    :jj: If nothing else, I'm dramatic.

    Yelp has never steered me wrong when picking places to eat when I'm out of town.

    you are aware that many businesses require their employees to post glowing reviews on Yelp to keep their jobs?

    I posted a review of how the most advanced and newest imac theater has an express escalator to the seating 7 stories above ground level, but closes it at the beginning of every showing and makes the audience walk up 7 flights of stairs because they fucked up the design and cannot empty the previous audience fast enough to make room for the next showing. that for $23+ tickets you have to walk up 7 stories to see the movie.

    do you think i shouldn't have posted that?

    Because there is no personal accountability. A person wants to give their personal opinion but does not have to verify who they are? Seems cowardly to me.

    Every bad review of an Oreck product is a Dyson employee.
