Yelp is a public, on-line forum which allows its members to post reviews on businesses and services.

Unfortunately, the content of the reviews is not monitored by Yelp prior to the reviews being posted, as it is on similar public review-based websites. As a result, content which is malicious, intentionally misleading, or blatantly false is allowed to pass as a true reflection of the business or the owner.

It is time to hold Yelp accountable for these libelous statements.

Stop allowing "yelpers" to post libelous statements while hiding behind the cover of their computer screens. Start holding Yelp accountable for the false, misleading, and malicious reviews posted on their website.

      We heard from many of you that you flagged the inappropriate Yelp review we mentioned. Collectively, this had a huge impact and Yelp removed the review this morning. We still look forward to the day that Yelp is accountable for EVERY review posted!

      My business has suffered over the past year due to negative reviews. 6 reviews are showing. 30 filtered and of those 30, approximately 23 are positive. I refuse to pay for advertising in order to see a change. They are truly the modern day mafia.

      Yelp removed one of my reviews which was ACCURATE and contained NO profanity and then refused to respond when I questioned them about it.

      Yelp is for liars, cheats and morally bankrupt losers. I'll spend my advertising dollars were they count. The bullies at Yelp tried the scare technique with me, it didn't work. I will not be harassed by the yelp criminals.
