YELP has joined ALEC - let them know what you think! [View all]

Just heard from MoveOn.org that YELP has joined ALEC. With just over a thousand reviews, the average rating of ALEC is the lowest possible, i.e., one star.

So, Yelp joined ALEC (yes, *that* ALEC) and this is what happened.

Feel free to add your review, as well.

Here's a few of the latest reviews/posts:

If ALEC was a restaurant, ALEC would serve GOP pig slop pressed together in little cookie cutter shaped patties on a poisoned, corporate-money-seeded bun.

They would serve this to the average patron, while CEOs would dine in a special section on nothing but the best cuts of corporate friendly legislation, washed down with a nice big glass of Tears Of The Masses.

Also, their service would suck.


And another:

I'm absolutely shocked that Yelp would partner with ALEC. ALEC is the reason so many states have passed laws like "Voter I.D." and "Stand Your Ground."

This neo-con ultra-convervative group is behind awful legislation that in no way helps independent businesses and consumers. Why would Yelp support such a group - because it benefits the millionaire owner?

Booo, Yelp. Booo, ALEC.


and
Shame on you Yelp! This is my last log in to your site since you have joined forces with ALEC.

Lame!!
