Dangerous TripAdvisor Reviewers to be Tagged

Dangerous TripAdvisor Reviewers to be Tagged

In a bold move to aid hotels, restaurants and bed and breakfast owners to avoid some of the worst of its members, TripAdvisor is trying to tag its most dangerous reviewers.

It is hoped that in time all of the most pompous and prolific reviewers with the most grossly exaggerated view of their own self-importance will be tagged in this way.

The scheme works by attaching a large “TripAdvisor” logo to the luggage of the unwanted guest, enabling canny owners to put up a “Fully Booked” sign as they see the offender approaching their business.

The trap is set by TripAdvisor sending out emails to its reviewers inviting them to apply for the luggage tags as a “gift” – much as police have used prize draws etc. to trap criminals in the United States.  As the scheme is entirely voluntary, it is legal for TripAdvisor to tag its members in this way.

TripAdvisor also takes the gullible reviewer’s email address and home address enabling them to further punish them with spam.

  1. I’m doubly blessed! Tags on my luggage and signs in my windows! Watch out…I may show up on your doorstep! LOL

    • 😀 Well done for “coming out”. You’re supposed to hand the window stickers out to places you visit, but the idea of using them to decorate your own house is a novel one! 😀
