TripAdvisor Not Publishing Negative ‘1-Star’ Reviews. I Quit.

I had 70 reviews and 280 photographs on ‘TripAdvisor‘. I was a Level 6 Contributor with 26 Helpful Votes and over 25,000 views. I would get at least 3 – 4 e-mails a week from “TripAdvisor” about how people loved my reviews and begging me to post more.

So after our trip to Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks & San Francisco, at the end of April 2016, when I didn’t have a camera and was not doing any posts, I submitted a bunch of reviews to TA. One of them was for “Grant Grove Restaurant” at King’s Canyon. The service was terrible and the food was bad. See reviews above. So my title was “Same As Previous Review”. I then went onto explain that we, one week later, experienced exactly the same. TA published all my other reviews within 16 hours. BUT would not publish this ‘1-star’ review. I e-mailed them and asked them. They fobbed me off.

That was it. They are not honest and sincere. Screw them. I closed my account. I am not dealing with an outfit that is disingenuous.

Well, what I said had to be said. The bundle, indubitably, is good value for money. I would NOT have got it, after all the months of research, if it was not. But you just need to be aware.

So far, so good with the camera. Here are 4 more images from the camera — DRAMATICALLY resized in terms of image size. The originals of these, in V.Fine quality, generate JPEG files as big as 18MG! What I am posting are 317KB! So a huge difference in size and hence quality!
