About Paris, France; Regarding sites like Yelp, Trip Advisor, etc.?

John Talbott | Apr 28, 2014 12:56 PM

I've read the CH rules and I think we're allowed to discuss other websites, blogs, etc., so long as there's no nastiness or profanity.
In the last few days several folks have referenced posts on these other sites as if they bring new insights into our discussions here.
My very personal opinion is that they are an unscientific sampling of opinion and that folks largely post on them to complain about slights, "rudeness," and so forth.
As someone trained in science, I know that if it's a N of 1 and anecdotal, it's just that, one anecdote.
In contrast, I've heard from friends here that owners, chefs, chef-owners and family members of the above encourage counter-posts from trusted friends to counter negative comments.
I'm only talking about Paris, OK?
Thoughts?

PS I bring this up because we all want to know where to go and what sources to trust because there's nothing worse culinary-wise than a blah meal.
