So I was just chatting with a friend on IM and he/she wanted me to do him/her a favor. What was the favor? Write a positive review for the restaurant where he/she works. Part of his/her job is to make sure the top 3 reviews (the number on the front page) on a local restaurant reviews web site are all positive.

How many restaurants have similar policies? I’m betting quite a few- I wonder if I should just discount restaurant reviews altogether? I certainly won’t trust them as much after this conversation.

I won’t say what restaurant this refers to so as to not get my friend in trouble. And I didn’t write the review if you’re wondering.
