“Brookdale, the senior care/assisted living megacorp.

Senior care in the US is terrifying, and they’re at the center of it. Abuse, neglect, grifting survivors into estate-locking deals, Brookdale is evil. Also, most of us will have to deal with them or someone like them as we’re entering our most vulnerable adult years.”

Established a near monopoly of academic journals. Charge scientists to publish in them (in the thousands) and also charge the public to read them (subscription also in the thousands).

Convince other scientists to review the scientific content for free (exploiting younger scientists who need to build their CVs).

Basically, putting a pay wall on the results of government tax dollar-funded research.

Don’t get me started on how major Universities deal with STEM Ph.D. students. Bringing people in as “students”, making them work 40+ hours a week in the lab, purposefully mis-classifying them as students when really they’re workers, applying for large government grants using data generated by these students, making them do all the grading for the undergrad classes, and then complain when the students are begging for 40k/year.

Instead, tell them they’re lucky that as “students,” they don’t have to pay tuition to be there. At the end of 5-7 years of this treatment, they’ll give you a PhD. SCAM.”

They target small businesses and weaponize reviews. They encourage an entitlement culture where people are in-centivized to leave hundreds of reviews in order to become a Yelp Elite and get free items at Yelp events.

They aren’t allowed to remove customer reviews, but they use their algorithm to move selected reviews into the “not recommended” section, which essentially removes them.

They use this as a carrot-and-stick approach to initiate advertising with them and they are relentless when calling, sometimes 3-4 times a day.

If a user leaves a false review that publicly names a person by name, posts a photo of them, and even makes a legally-confirmed libelous statement about the person, Yelp may not remove the review.

Lastly, if you own a small business and don’t want to play this game and you’d like your business simply removed from their platform altogether, you can’t without a court order.

There are even more examples of their employees doing unethical and corrupt things, but these are just some of the worst.

They run a legalized extortion scheme targeting mom-and-pop small businesses. They’re scam.”
