The comment above appeared on three different Urbanspoon pages linked to my own site’s reviews. I must admit that while I wasn’t shocked or surprised at what I saw (I get hate mail all the time), I was a little disappointed that someone seriously believes what they wrote. While I could go on for hours about this particular person’s rant, I have only one thing to say:
I gave Baldy’s BBQ in Lakeville a very positive review even though many people think the place flat out sucks.
I dish out a lot of grief to those I review or write about and I guess this is one of the first more public attempts to give me back some of my own medicine and as such I’d like to hear what you have to say. Perhaps more of you come and read here because you think I’m somehow credible–completely counter to what I personally believe. Perhaps you agree that I’m biased and/or a coward in the way that I write and/or conduct business on this site. Maybe you are truly confused and believe I am a ‘restaurant critic’. What are some things you’d like to see change around here to meet whatever it is that you’re looking for this site to provide? Whatever it is you have to say regarding “pos-billroehl”‘s rant on Urbanspoon go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear it.
