Is everyone tired of Yelp or what? [Moved from Pacific NW]

I want to get people's perspective of Yelp, does eveyone like it or hate it? I don't want to sound like a hater but i must admit that i can't stand yelp. It seems to me that everyone who goes on Yelp wants to just cut every restaurant down. All i read is that the restaurant was way overpriced or that the server was rude or that the portion size was super small. It just seems like a very negative place and i don't know why. I don't know what the deal is about eating out in Seattle but if you listen to the majority of the people on Yelp you will think that every restaurant in this city is out to get you. Why does everyone on Yelp think restaurants are overpriced and nobody thinks going to a Mariners game is overpriced? Last time i checked Ichiro is making a gazillion dollars more per year than Tom Douglas. Am i right? Why does nobody complain that the bag of popcorn at the movie theater is $10 for a MEDIUM and everyone thinks that Matt Dillon's portions are "expensive for the portion size"? I'm pretty sure that Tom Cruise makes more per year than Matt Dillon. Is it Yelp, is it the people that post on Yelp or is it the diners that eat out in Seattle. I would appreciate people explaining to me why Yelp is so negative.
