Interesting, YELP has hidden my positive review for Bob's piano moving, why? I'm afraid that Yelp may be catering to competitor companies that have paid for advertising, because their grading system would have included Bob's service in the search for his type of service. It appears in order to thwart competition for paying customers, they instead create a "not recommended" list, and bury ALL the good reviews, which in turn lowers the rating of the company that did not pay for their advertising. This is "Punishment" for not buying their advertising. This is FRAUD, and DEFAMATION, and the positive reviews did not break any terms of service to deserve being buried. Businesses are invited to post on Yelp with no requirement to PAY, according to their policy, but it appears this is not the case. Legally, Yelp cannot defame the good name of a business, that is ILLEGAL, especially if they do not allow positive reviews to be included in their rating system just because the business did not purchase a product from them. There is nothing in the "terms of service" that indicates a requirement for a purchase to be made in order to use the service. If I were Yelp, I would avoid a class action lawsuit against them by not practicing deceitful advertising and fraud.
