I'm not an editor so I'll let you guys figure this out. The History section says "Angie's List was co-founded ...in 2009". Then the next paragraph says "In 1996, Angie's List purchased Unified Neighbors..." So how did Angie's List purchase anything in 1996 if they weren't founded until 2009?" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:08, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
"reviews presented by paid members are more reliable than reviews posted on other websites such as Yelp because "Companies can't pay to be on Angie's List"
This is an utter contradiction in terms. And I am going to delete most of it. Huw Powell (talk) 03:40, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
If this is true this is just a criminal enterprise.
"Angie's List has been criticized for the fundamental contradiction between its claimed philosophy ("Companies can't pay to be on Angie's List") and the conflict of interest caused by reliance on advertising revenue for 70% of cash flow.  Answering a complaint from a user, David Segal found that when subscribers post a negative review of a company to Angie's List, a staff member discusses it with them in an attempt to rectify the situation. If the company is one that advertises with Angie's List, the negative review will be removed and then the customer must give an A or B grade. The company's effort to keep advertisers happy reveals their conflict of interest"
If this is true, this company is just an extortionist outfit of no use to the local consumer. We need to seriously work this out. Huw Powell (talk) 03:47, 13 April 2014 (UTC)
