Yelp doesn't let owners point out certain things on there own listing



So by now you know that Yelp sometimes filters out real positive reviews and leaves fake negative reviews. And you know that it hurts an owner. 

So I suppose all an owner has to do is go to their Yelp buisness page and point out what's happening right? 

Wrong! 

An owner cannot write on their own Yelp buisness page that there are some real positive reviews in the filtered section and that customers should open it. 

And an owner cannot write on their own Yelp buissnes page that some of the negative reviews are fake, even if the owner can prove it. 

If an owner tries to write things like this, Yelp will remove it. 

Can you believe that? Can you? I mean Yelp is already hurting an owner, and the owner can't even defend himself? And you wonder why I call Yelp evil? 

On an owners buisness page there are sections where an owner can write about their business, history, background, etc. There is a section where customers can "meet the owner." And yet, an owner can't write down that there some real positive reviews in the filtered section and that customers should open it? And an owner can't write down that some of the negative reviews on the page are fake? Wow.

It's like Yelp just wants to make it hard for the owner. Why? 

Yelp is not only hurting some owners but they won't even allow some owners to try to make things better? 

Not strange enough? Well think about this: 

Anyone can make a listing about your buisness on Yelp without your permission. Anyone can put up pictures of your business. Anyone can write details about your business. Anyone can write fake reviews about your business. But the owner can't write down that a review is fake. And the owner can't write down that people can open the filtered reviews. 

Is this logical? And again, why does Yelp seem to want to make it hard for owners?
