I received a letter from my pool service company offering me a monetary incentive (letter posted) to post a positive review on Angie's List. I did not accept and as a result I abruptly cancelled my Angie's List membership.

I had turned a skeptical eye towards negative comments I previously read about AL, but now I have tangible proof that some of their contractor reviews may be tainted.

I personally think the Angie's List model is fundamentally flawed and wide open to abuse of this nature. Like many other internet operations, I suspect the real business of AL is data collection.

That is an unethical company, has nothing to do with Angie's List. btw, that is grounds for being removed from AL, so hope you reported them.

A business can ask for an honest review, but not ask to compensate for it.
