    What yelp buyer gets would not only be the failing business but all the intangibles that comes with it, which includes the hatred from thousands of small businesses that yelp has hurt and tons of bad will with their potential customers. They have hurt so many people over the years that it's coming home to roost. It may take more time for bad karma to return to Yelp, but it will be for whoever that is buying this POS company.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • This POS depends on free users to extort small businesses to advertise with them. Unfortunately, the game is up and the small businesses are holding their ground and fighting back. They are still fighting small businesses that are defamed by withholding the lying poster's identities in court. Why should any legitimate honest small business want to associate with these trashy people. I intentionally boycott and tell those in my industry to boycott yelp advertisers that need yelp to lie for them. Yelp will meet its fate.

    Typical Yelper that yelp tries to protect. Makes you wonder where the world is going to when gangsters are protected by big yelp lawyers.

    Typical. You should get Yelp "rescue" phone calls soon to sell you services.

    Yelp may need to charge yappers to post, since that's their real customers.

    I think you don't understand the issue beyond the surface.
    1. Most of your merchants don't have pages of bad reviews. they have a few but are the ones not filtered even if they are lies, because the good ones are often the ones that are filtered. That significantly affects their ratings/business and yelp takes advantage of the situation.
    2. The good places can be manipulated by the "filters" as long as enough good reviews get filtered out and that system can be chosen/designed/tweaked to skew certain ways. They are not telling you or me how it's done.
    3. It might only be a waste of money for restaurant goers or regular consumers. But imagine a good doctor who is very skilled with jealous competitors who puts up a couple of false bad yelp reviews telling people that he is bad and to sue him for anything. He stops doing high risk surgeries, and we are forced to go elsewhere and risk bad outcomes. This happened in my community. Or look at the carpet cleaner in DC that got slandered on yelp but yelp refuses to release the identity of the posters even though they claim they are an innocent host. He might be the best in town, but his reputation is tarnished by a few young punks, and customers are confused.

    So while you play yelp stock and make a couple of bucks, know that the company has done a lot of bad to hurt many people and that may come home to roost.

    Well if she is a con, why bother even post and be angry about it. No need to cheer for yelp if it's not in hot water huh....

    I bet Yelp filtered out the good posts and kept this fake post on there. The reason why small businesses are angry is due to jerks like this. The problem is yelp refuse to remove fake posts like this, yet continue to filter out real positive posts from real customers. And there are thousands like this where the business people complaint and yelp is all too happy to use this to sell their "services." Talk about yelp cutting its own throat with their potential small merchant customers. Now the potential customers want to cut yelp's throat.

    I guess it's such a small problem that Yelp has to send a well dressed and coiffed exec to beat up the young lady on national TV.

    For those defending the stock, rest assured that it will be pumped up a bit where you can dump your stock for profit. Lots of Wall Street firms are holding the bag so they will make sure it's done. For the rest of us seeking truth and justice, the movie will be made and hopefully give some justice to small merchants being hurt. I know instances where innocent people have been physically hurt in a significant way due to Yelp's review manipulation. Those stories will not be out so what you hear and see from the movie are only the tip of the iceberg.

    I think they have automated to keeping the bad reviews and dumping the good ones with the filter system. Saves time and money and can do their dirty deeds in a wholesale fashion.

    How do you bashers explain

    Depends on whether the business have vicious competitors and whether they pay their customers to review them. Competitors put fake posts on there and don't get filtered. Customers getting a fat discount or free products will not bad mouth you but what's the validity of their reviews? In summary, Yelp posts don't mean much, it can be gamed. Only the honest mom and pops get hurt.

    I guess that's what Yelp does, hire big lawyers to beat up and intimidate the little people. Exactly the point of the movie. I don't care what the stock does, as long as the truth comes out, people will be aware and the rest of the consequences will naturally follow.

    Lawsuits Will Sink Yelp

    Unfortunately I think Yelp has enough big money lawyers to take care of that. The court says Yelp can legally manipulate the ratings on their site. In America, the rich can often buy justice with big lawyers and this might be the case. But I think the big point is that when the masses realize that Yelp is not an objective rating website, and that the reviews are manipulated, it would give them second thoughts about trusting or writing on Yelp. As you can see from the recent big stock drop, it may collapse if all of sudden significant amounts of people stop using Yelp. While Yelp is trying to get more media attention by having writers write about them, the problem with the rating system by Yelp is that majority of these yappers are young people who some may be quite irresponsible. Once Yelp loses its hip status which it's already losing, these young and dumb trend following crowd will quickly ignore it, and sky high valuation will crash badly. Looking at the movie's fundraising activity, it's looking like a grassroots movement from the masses, completely opposite of Yelp's big money high powered 1% approach. I think the public tend to go with the people, especially these young liberal types supporting Yelp. The important point is in business it should be a win win between you and your (potential) customers. A lot of people will go to great lengths once you start hurting them in unfair ways. Don't mess with people just because you can, it's still wrong.

    Yelp cant cut it in New York say NY Post

    Businessowners wronged by douchbags backed by this trashy company are speaking out. While yelp post strong warnings to be nice to the dumb posters for the businesses, there are no such warnings for the yelpers to trash established businesses. There are crazies and freeloaders everywhere. When an established business gets wronged by some young punk, the least they can do is to speak up even though only like two lines are shown on yelp. It's a shame that these young and dumb reviewers that don't materially affect established business are allowed to trash reputations built by these businesses over decades. This is why yelp will soon not be a viable business concern with lots of folks victimized by the young and dumb yelp punks. They rather die than to give yelp extortionists any business.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
