Comment: Re:Uber has demonstrated contempt for the law (Score 1) 325 325

>I would argue that the very existence of a "medallion" that costs more than the filing fee is evidence of collusion between the taxi authority and the taxi's

And that in now way is proof. The medallion system started in NYC due to public outcry. That is fact, not this fairy-tail taxi cartel.

It is also fact that Uber has zero respect for our laws, and that alone should warrant action.

NO The medallion system is NOT a sign of a taxi cartel. It was created cuz there were too many fucking cabs. stop with the conspiracy. Uber breaks the law. PERIOD. They are competing unfairly.

Working in violation of the law does not make you a good business.

So those 8 may or may not be fake (one in particular looks to be a possibly valid review, but hard to know). Why were the other 9 removed as well. Funny that ALL his bad reviews were removed when only 8 are actionable. (but you know the obviously fake good review stays up. Hard for a California construction company to get a valid review from some kid in Princeton, NJ.)

But it's obviously not. There are several bad reviews from real accounts (friends more then 1 review). He is hurting his case by lumping all of them together. Funny that he had yelp remove every bad review not just the suspect ones. But somehow he got a 5 star review from some kid in NJ, makes me think this guy has been buying a few good reviews.

This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough hunchbacks.
