Reader: Yelp reviews are by real people -- that's the real problem

Cafe Society had stooped to a new low with its list of the "Top five most ridiculous Denver Yep restaurant reviews,"Jennifer said. Obviously not, since we're going even lower by highlighting this response by Jay to Jennifer's comment:

50% of yelp reviews are:

A. "The portions were small, I'd rather go to __________ (insert chain restaurant)." B. "I never actually ate there, I just had a PBR at happy hour, but the menu looked expensive and had no gluten free options so I don't think I'll go back." C. "The food was not authentic. I know what authentic is because I studied abroad in ______."

At the end of the day, Yelp is real reviews by real people. However, most real people are dumb and useless.
