I agree with you Joe, but I also agree with Henry. There are those that genuinely don’t care to perouse art selections and there’s nothing wrong with that. I haven’t actually read the link, but I imagine there are some who honestly don’t care for it and some who find it hard to praise the work of others for whatever reason.
Yelp, which I’ve never been to and have only read about, seems like an interesting thing. On the one hand it seems like a useful resource for consumers to use in order to weed out legitimately poor busineses, while on the other hand it would seem there are those consumers that use it as a weapon to blackmail good businesses into catering to their demands such as threatening a resaurant with a bad review if they don’t get some freebies.
That other hand really deminishes the usefulness of Yelp because you don’t know if the reviews you’re reading are honest or not. I suppose you can look and see what the majority reviews look like, but then there are businesses that sell good reviews to other businesses so again this puts us back to square one, you have no idea if a good or bad review is honest or not so in reading Yelp you come out ‘knowing’ pretty much the same as if you had not read Yelp at all.
