So I was talking to a co-worker about why I wasn't really a big fan of Yelp, but mentioned I had posted a couple of items on the site. She asked about my reviews and I gave her my name on the site and she couldn't find any of my reviews. We then found out my reviews (all four of them) had been "filtered out."
Yelp says it filters reviews from lesser known reviewers until there is "trust" established, so my reviews do NOT show up and are not counted in the tally of the restaurant.

I think Yelp has it all wrong. If the reviewers cannot trust Yelp, why bother?
