Angies List - I quit Angie's List, and here's why...

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.

This review is a subjective opinion of a user.

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.
