Hi there,

I’m writing to let you know about our decision to close your account. Our Support team has determined that your account has violated Yelp’s Terms of Service (http://www.yelp.com/static?p=tos), specifically for impersonating the president of the New York Yankees.

In creating a Personal Account, we ask that you provide complete and accurate information about yourself to bolster your credibility as a contributor to the Service. You may not impersonate someone else (e.g., adopt the identity of a celebrity or your next-door neighbor), create or use an account for anyone other than yourself, provide an email address other than your own, or create multiple Personal Accounts. If you use a pseudonym, take care to note that others may still be able to identify you if, for example, you include identifying information in your reviews, use the same account information on other sites, or allow other sites to share information about you with Yelp. Please read our Privacy Policy for more information.

While we don’t provide additional details about account closures, please know that we review every situation with great attention and take this matter very seriously.

Regards,
Clarence
Yelp User Support

  1. Yelp’s a wet blanket. Have fun being the digital Zagats, suckers!
    Was it you all along, GC?
