Tripadvisor.com has to be one of the entities in this country that does the most damage to small business over the entire world. And it is going to get worse. Tripadvisor.com allows any person to wirte most anything they want on their website to damage smalll business.

Rebutals to these so-called "reviews" are often times sent back over and over again for editing - because they do not want the business to set the records entirely straight. They think they are protected by law to allow others to commit libel. However, when their reviewers are being threatened with lawsuits if they not remove their libelous review - the "red flag" the business.........

While tripadvisor.com is raking it in thru their travel sites, hotels who pay them a yearly fee and malicious, disgruntled and low IQ travelers - government is killing small business owners - as if the economy is not yet dead enough.

What a country....

It is interesting that you would question the osters motives. I would think that the average reader would not be so inclined to respond as you have to that particlar unless they had an axe to grind with hoteliers or they, in some manner or another, had a vested interest in TripAdvisor.com/Expedia. I tend to think, logically, you fall into the latter category.

In my eyes the Tripadvisor.cadministrators are trying t reach out to all forums. I'd like to say good try but it was an bad and annoying try.

For what it's worth I would, without hesitation, say it to your face as well, if given the chance.

So to complain about a site that allow people to post negative reviews on a site that by policy does not remove any posts.

Obviously you have some travel related business that has a negative review on Tripadvisor, and you don't think it is right. Based on the picture you posted we could probably guess that this is a hotel of some sort.

Since you left no details one can only guess that perhaps the review may actually be correct. As you could defend your businesshere with no worries about it being deleted. There is also one very interesting comment that you made.

because they do not want the business to set the records entirely straight.

- The key there is "entirely straight". By that statement one could take that as the review may have had some valid points and may not be as libelous as you are trying to make it out to be.

By the way calling someone a "low IQ traveler" is not professional and may also be seen as libelous.
