Anyone else have this happen? It was actually my 1st review ever and I wrote it b/c of the horrible experience I had at a new salon last Friday which I wrote about here:
The review was honest, but I didn’t mention any names as I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s career. I just wanted to warn future brides like myself that they need to be careful and very specific if they are trying to grow their hair out. I also mentioned that Bayalage is messy and not a ‘clean look’ for highlights as it’s painted on.
I found out it was deleted b/c the Salon just called me and asked how my experience was. They offered me 20% off on my next visit, but didnt’ outright ask if it was me who left the review.
I checked Citysearch when I got off the phone and it was gone! Are they allowed to just do that? Do they know who I am now?

It may be because it was the only review you have ever left. I had a friend who left a great review on Yelp for a restaurant but it got deleted because he never had written a review before. I think it is to prevent people from posting bias reviews (such as writing a scathing review on a competitors service or a great review on a friend’s business). Maybe try posting a bunch of reviews of other services and then repost the one that got deleted.

Wow, that’s nuts. Hmmm… makes you think.

@Steak – it was my 1st, but I also wrote a bunch of other reviews while I was at it.
It does make me think! The salon has about 500 good reviews and like 10 bad ones. I wrote a bad one and it got deleted..

I have written reviews for Citysearch, not my first review either and it got deleted. At first I thought it was a glitch so I reposted it and it got deleted again. After that I sent an email to Citysearch but got no response so I just stop using that site to post reviews and I don’t bother reading the reviews on there either.

Do these places pay citysearch or something? I was trying to figure out what it was in my review that would justify deleting it. I had a bad experience and detailed it, but didn’t say anything extremely bad or even slightly untrue.
