My apologies to Yelp.com!
This week, I accused them of sending fake complements to their users. I made this accusation as after finding a compliment on one of my reviews, and googling the text of the compliment, only to find that it has appeared hundreds of thousands of times before.
Helpful wagist readers have pointed out that while compliment was indeed unoriginal, it wasn’t generated by Yelp itself, but rather by yelp users who used a generic compliment-giving system built into the Yelp site.
I’m the first to admit when I’m wrong. I deleted my previous post as soon as the error was pointed out to me.
