TripAdvisor has been the subject of controversy for allowing unsubstantiated anonymous reviews to be posted about any hotel, B&B, inn, or restaurant.[35]

Approximately 30 hotels have been blacklisted by TripAdvisor for suspicious reviews, including a Cornwall hotel that bribed guests to leave positive reviews of the hotel.[36]

TripAdvisor has stated that reviews are not posted to the website instantly, but are subject to a verification process which considers the IP address and email address of the author, and tries to detect any suspicious patterns or obscene or abusive language.[37] The website also allows the community of users to report suspicious content, which is then assessed by a team of quality assurance specialists, and TripAdvisor alerts the owner or manager of a TripAdvisor-listed establishment whenever a review is posted on their listing.


I opened a TRIPADVISER ACCOUNT and after attempting to leave an Honest Positive Review about a restaurant that I liked,  TRIPADVISER sent me a Machine generated Email stating that my review was BORING>


After phoning Trip Adviser, I was told that too many positive reviews make for Boring Reading and I was advised to leave a Three Star Review instead of a Five Star Review. Basically TRIPADVISER is a big SCAM and they pick and choose their reviews.


I closed my trip adviser Account.

Well duh!!!! Its called SOcial ENgineering OPtimisation for a reason!!!! You think any review is real? That it hasnt been picked at and edited and screened? Come on!!! Common sense tells us NOTHING they tell us online as a review is true! I should believe what is presented to me online as some form of indisputable fact? Sorry just because " Barbara G. In Minnisota says some places services are spectacular doesnt mean the staff there actualy performed in that manner.Its no different then one company telling us that THEY are the best in their field. Its called ADVERTISING! Not a ripoff or scam. Its selective presentation of information to thereby cause greater customer foot traffic. Also known as BUSINESS!!  If THIS is so terrible to you then go find a cave to live in. You deal with it everyday in every aspect of your life. From The spoonfed nightly news to the color of the clothes you wear. With the freedom of the internet you are now even more controlled then ever before. The biggest laugh I find is that you WILLINGLY allow yourselves to be SHEEP! Only NOW after decades of it do you "bleat" about it! Stop putting your trust into someone elses supposed experience and go out a find out for youtself. Its caled LIVING LIFE!TAKE A CHANCE!!! You may find that  richness you hear others talk about.
