Weird Fish Claims Yelp Stinks



    The Dos and Don'ts of Good Sleep

    Timothy Holt, owner of Weird Fish and The Corner, has had it up to here with Yelp and its highly-questionable ethics.

    The recap: a year ago, he posted a review on Yelp, thanking/addressing customers. This weekend, Yelp removed five positive reviews, including the aforementioned one.

    The move comes in the wake of a recent barrage of unsuccessful advertising pitches. Now, it's one thing to crack down on shilling, but removing year-old reviews after a refusal to advertise? That's poor form at best, extortion at worst.
