    That's some petty bullshit. Any idea who it was?

    Oh. So it wasn't someone from here?

    I'm afraid that's out of my jurisdiction.

    I'm just asking, because reading your posts I really get the impression that you're paid or you have interest in defending that place. Actually I don't even care, but it's really the first impression I got when reading your message. Or is the business yours?

    You're hallucinating, Aurelien. Nobody gives enough of a shit about what Pete has to say. Why would someone pay him to say it?

    Pete Mcbrostein: Dude, as long as there's competition between services, venues and whatnot, there WILL be fake reviews. Just think about it.. how many people actuall take their time to write a review? Not many, but still more or less any hotel, service or restaurant tend to have plenty of reviews. 

    Only way I can think of to prevent this is to require a check-in on the place you review < 500 meters from the place < 1 days ago in order to post a review.

    That sounds splendid. I'm sharpening my knives. I'll try and make it up to Wudaokou this week and check the place out so I can make an informed meta-review of the place and all of the other reviewers' mothers.

    There aren't enough good Mexican restaurants in Beijing, and there's no good reason for it.

    You notice how Jonathan Law's post just got lost in the praise for this place?  THAT is how you fight fake reviews, you encourage people to write more, and the spammers will get lost in the noise.
