abhorrent1: So people are trying to turn yelp reviews into amazon reviews by trying and failing to be funny and sarcastic?Just because you're a petty biatch doesn't mean a product or service is bad. The problem is you.

cajunns: And what is so bad about giving Bad reviews ; i;ve given them to hotels i've stayed in for their crappiness and to restuarants for their bad food or service or pricing; i don't want recompense i just want to let others know how things are without them experiencing the same faults.

She also hails from Toronto, Canada and is a die-hard Maple Leafs fan, sigh.Nobody's perfect.
abhorrent1: I've seen people give one star or bad reviews on sites like newegg or amazon cause they thought the blister-pack was too hard to open. That not a product review. It's a review of the reviewers intelligence./review!
jake_lex: I wonder if people are finally realizing that these feedback sites are just magnets for people who want to biatch, who are probably playing up whatever problem they did have thinking that the management is going to rush to them to shower them with gifts to win them over.

Finally stopped when I noticed I wasn't having much fun anymore when going out. Most of my evening was spent thinking about what I'd write in my review and to be "fair" I'd always try to find something good and something bad to write in the review which often required being nit picky. Many friends who I'd led to Yelp and also became Eliters had this spill over into how they dealt with each other. People who use to be fun to be around became judgmental pricks, sniping at each other and endlessly looking for faults. I had to leave them behind when I stopped reviewing. One even started stalking me for having the nerve to leave their little hive of judgement.Yelp has some nice parties for their Elite members but in the end it just isn't worth having your brain rewired to become an arsehole just so they can get some free labor and you can get some free booze.I find Yelp to be useful for looking up addresses, operating hours, and some details like if there is parking nearby but more and more I ignore the reviews.
