    Great….

    Now, Yelp will have nearly complete control over these small businesses’ online reputations if they refuse to advertise with YP. They’ll extort every last business until they have all of them in their pocket.

    And the ones who don’t will go out of business due to the bad reviews Yelp easily lets slip out from their “spam filter.”

    A win-win for everyone but the small businesses and consumers. Yellow pages should retire. They are like a rich grumpy old perverted man.
