TripAdvisor and Rape
Rape is a VERY serious crime, and is definitely not a laughing matter. Being accused of rape and / or any sexual crime can have severe and devastating consequences.
The exact same can be said about someones business / livelihood being accused as a a rape scene, or a scene to any serious crime. All it takes is one fake malicious and completely invalidated review to be approved and posted on the internet… You are fucked!!
Now imagine it being approved and posted on the site that claims to be the largest and most reliable travel website in the world TripAdvisor – Imagine 60+ million users reading a completely fake and invalidated review by an invalidated reviewer, approved by TripAdvisor claiming that person got raped and attacked in YOUR Hotel / B&B
Just remember, if it’s on TripAdvisor, it must be TRUE, because as TripAdvisor’s Emma Shaw KEEPS quoting :
TripAdvisor’s top priority to ensure the content featured on its site is authentic. “We dedicate significant time and resources to that end, including a host of more than 25 sophisticated filters, a team of detectives, and our community of over 60 million users who help us police reviews.
OK, just so you can rest assure that the reviews below have all been authenticated, filtered, investigated and policed by 60 million TripAdvisor Nazi’s, and the fact that they are on TripAdvisor means they are all reviews you can trust… Oh, and yes they are almost all ONE Time posters that have had nothing else to share with others since they trashed someone’s reputation. Either that, or even they are shocked that TripAdvisor posted their reviews, and want nothing to do with them..
ENJOY, and yes, you will want to laugh out loud, but remember someone’s reputation is being dragged through hell by a sad probably lonely person and an arrogant and pathetic TripAdvisor.
Remember this can EASILY happen to you and your business – Also, when reading these reviews, ask yourself, if this happened to YOU, what would YOU have done, would you have handled these problems the same way as the (one time) reviewer did… ( we doubt it very much , unless of course you work for TripAdvisor)
Who is to blame here the reviewer or TripAdvisor?
they are both to blame, however it is TripAdvisor that is doing the damage. They are offering ANYBODY a means / platform to post life damaging reviews like the above. Nor the reviewer or the review has been validated. We are not talking about the soup being cold, or the pillows being too soft, we are talking about innocent people being accused of being a pedophile, or rapist, drug addicts, sexual predators and mentally deranged. Also honest people trying to make a decent living are having their business trashed online, more than often by the competition. Owners are being blackmailed and threatened for goods and services, or else face damaging reviews like the ones above.
Is this what TripAdvisor started out to be?.. absolutely not, the TripAdvisor concept was and is brilliant, however like everything else you have to adapt and make changes along the way. TripAdvisor has grown too big for their boots, they have become extremely arrogant and self centered. Yes, the concept is great, but the execution of the concept is very outdated, and it will be their downfall. But there will always be someone else to take over..
HAHA… Sure you can trust TripAdvisor
