You have to read every review with a grain of salt. Reason, their automated "filter" system filters just about everyone who is a real person. About the only people who's reviews don't get filtered are the 100+ review people or various companies who have learned to game there site. Be very careful when using this site.
Have never heard of or visited this site ever but have suddenly started receiving copious amounts of unsolicited emails claiming I registered for an account. That is a lie and I never replied to the account confirmation link which they emailed me. Now receiving daily spam from yelp.com addresses.
I gave a positive review for a shop in Pacific Grove that I frequent.Then I noticed that the negative reviews stayed and that mine and other positive reviews disappeared. When I wrote to Yelp, I never received a response even though they said they would.
I searched on Google for a name. A link to their site came up with the name and number of stars for the review. But when I click on the link, I got someone else entirely. I am sure this was intentional to up the rating of someone else who is paying them for clicks. Talk about bait and switch. Bad mojo.
asisna/Spokane is an understaffed M-F low-end franchise of sisna.com (Salt Lake City, UT). Owned and very badly operated by Tim Moore who is a 1-man disaster of confusion, misdirection, shoddy service and questionable business practices. It is by far the very worse ISP that U could pick, stay away or pay more for a better ISP: tech-support is a joke and complain about it, an answering machine will record your gripes but like e-mails 2 asisna U won't get Jack back to help unless U call sisna HQ 1-877-467-4762, who will refer U right back to Tim tech-support/billing/web-hosting/etc. He flaunts/violates his own TOS and ducks legitimate issues by ignoring them. He walks a fine line between struggling to keep his servers working and ducking his customers complaints. Private billing by a company he just happens to lay in bed with: TSMG is cheap, and cheap ISP service is what U get. Don't know a single customer of this cyber-racket who has anything positive to say about this mess of IT slum-lording. There are no positive qualities 2 this operation so don't cry or whine as asisna Tim don't care. Predict he will lose this francise the more of his own servces he fails to provide yet sings about how good sisna in Spokane is on this rated web-site & affiliated ones.
