Looks like Yelp has added a new option for flagging reviews recently. Now reviewers and owners can choose "It was posted by a competitor or ex-employee" when flagging a review.

Thanks for sharing! Sounds like a really smart option. Wish Google would add some flagging options like that.

That's a handy option. We see negative Yelp reviews by disgruntled employees from time to time and report them.

Note: we do not report yelp reviews by employees who are gruntled.

I'm not sure what gruntled looks like. It sounds kind of yucky.

That is all.
