TripAdvisor – what a bunch of wankers: bogus customer question

Last week we had to call the Police into Free Speech & Pizza as one Bulletin Board jihadist was calling 40 times a day to swear at our staff. TripAdvisor is fully aware of the campaign of harassment against Clerkenwell’s finest pizza house because we have told it. It refuses to take action and refuses to let us post replies to bogus posts pointing out that they are bogus as that is defamatory. Now it asks if we would like to answer a customer question. An email just received is a hoot. It reads:

A customer has a question about The Real Man Pizza Company. Respond and your answer will rise to the top of the list. Answering questions is a great and easy way to engage with customers (new and old) and encourage more business. 

Hi When are the council going to close this rat hole down i hear they paid a corrupt councill official to sign off the hygiene certificate. This place should be condemmed certainly would not recommend to any one. Also I am sure some of the staff were smoking weed outside in the street. Should this be allowed are the police aware there are probably drugs on the premises. The owner often brags about coke and hookers and when i was there a couple of not so clean looking girls were in the restaurant flirting with some fat toothless drunk on table no 10. My question is when is this place going to be fully inspected? 

Hmmm. Apparently that is not defamatory at all is it TripAdvisor? And you kind of wonder

Bogus Restaurant Review of the day - does Tripadvisor give a FF about the truth?

Tripadvisor is a listed company in the US. Its business model is driven by getting as many page views as possible. But as folks wake up to the fact that some, if not a lot, of the reviews are bogus might that not be a problem? We have repeatedly alerted the company to what is going on. It has not only refused to act but also refused to allow us to publish replies showing why certain reviews are patently fake. It argues we are libelling the reviewers! So..

Punching the air at Real Man Pizza – now we go on the attack for free speech & great food

Real Man Pizza Company is one of the worst rated Tripadvisor restaurants in London. Over the past year free speech denying shareholders in blinx, Quindell and other POS companies have reacted to my – vindicated – sell calls by posting bogus reviews and boasting about them online. 

Tripadvispor has been shown proof of this but has refused to act. We have not be helped by having only a 1* (on a scale of 0-5) hygiene rating from the Council. That was a result of legacy issues: years of capital under-spend and poor staff training. They knew what to do to follow the rules but could not explain why. 

We have invested heavily in upgrading the place and in our staff and for yonks have been begging for a re-inspection as we have known that we were massively underscored for most of last year. 

The inspector finally arrived last week and gave us 4/5 classification “good”. That is a lagging indicator as we have been at that level for ages. All those reviews claiming the place was dirty, etc were just lies. 

Even last week a bloke posted a review claiming the waiter was drunk. Our waiters are female – they are waitresses. Our
