YELP has joined ALEC - let them know what you think!

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.
American Legislative Exchange Council

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.

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

1. Requested YELP CLose my Account

After learning that Yelp joined ALEC - I asked them to cancel my account.

Looking at their site, it's difficult to find out how to cancel. You need to go to their FAQ and in the Profile Section there is a question about "How do I cancel my Yelp account".

You should be able to get there using this URL:
