I've never felt that Yelp is accurate. I also feel like it makes reviewers jump through hoops by encouraging them to write more reviews in order to make it more likely that their review is recommended (I mean to make sure it's not in the "not recommended" reviews that are hidden), etc etc. So it's not only bullying businesses, I feel it also tries to bully reviewers into do more and more work. I only have about 3 yelp reviews and I decided never to put any more reviews on for exactly that reason. If Yelp thinks I'm not trustworthy because I only have 3 reviews, that's their problem not mine. I think reviewers need to realize that by reviewing places on yelp, they're basically working for Yelp for free.
