Default Dub needs help

If anyone has been on this forum long enough, you know that Dub (from Corvette Etc in Charlotte NC) has been an outstanding member of this forum and the Corvette community as a whole. Recently, someone has tried to tarnish his reputation via Yelp. If you go read the post I'm sure you'll understand why he's pretty upset. Normally, yeah you can't please everyone, but as this was his first and only review, it's pretty devastating. If you have time and have either gotten your Vette serviced at his shop or he's helped you with a problem here, go show your appreciation. <<< copy paste link to get to the right spot
Thanks all.

Done! The review that was left was shameful! Dub contributes a wealth of information with no monetary return all the time! Not to mention the work he does. Its people like that one , that ruin the hobby and keep great guys from helping others. Thanks for all you do Dub! ~ Donnie

The link that was posted does not bring me to anything other than the Yelp home page.

fwiw yelp has filters that are suppose to prevent spamming of reviews.
So for example, everyone is probably gonna try and post a review within the next 24-48 hrs. Itll detect the high traffic and posts and get flagged to the point that reviews will go into a pending process to see if theyre fake. especially for new users who sign up specifically to rate him.
the automated software will filter out what it thinks are fake reviews and the star rating will be adjusted without them.

You can see it aleady happening.

at the bottom the reviews are getting filtered out

Itís odd that they give you a chance to positively rank reviews there 3 different ways, but you arenít allow to report a review thatís obviously abusive with that ridiculous accusation. Iím surprised Yelp doesnít clearly have a review report button.

You need to copy and paste it into your browser. For some reason, the link doesn't work.
What a stupid review. Apparently the guy thinks he didn't get called because: "I believe he doesn't like patronage from ppl of darker hue". Geeze.

Whenever I see a bad review- I click on that person's other reviews....

Just like my ex wife said it was ALL my fault - yet she's on number 6!!!

Looks like the guy is just mistreated everywhere!!!

No one goes further out of their way to help others than Dub, period. I agree with Richard, review the reviewer, people will see through the bs.

It's a shame that the person who wrote the scathing review had to bring race into the mix. I have never had the pleasure of dealing with DUB but, I have enjoyed his posts. He has always taken time out of his busy day to go into great detail to help out a fellow Corvette owner.

It's really sad how people can hide behind a keyboard and the internet.

Dub has been a great help to many folks on this forum and has not hesitated to be helpful when he can. As stated in other post its a shame that some %^#$head has to bring race into it. Good Luck Dub.

Anyone that takes as much time as DUB does to help people on this Forum, well there's just no room in his world for negativity! As they say, everyone has an opinion ...

Yelp is useless, I can tell By Vitoís post that his car is probably a really POS and he is probably a big talker and want to be baller...
I friend of mine has a used car dealership and had a young Indian kid who came in with a ďfast and furiousĒ type customized car. Jeremy told the kid look, Iím not going to buy your car. I cannot market it to anyone besides some Asian kid with a small *****...
The Yelp review says he insulted my car and told me a have a small *****....flipping hysterical

We are lucky to have a guy like Dub here to help the members of this forum.
I have called him several times and it blows me away how he will take time out of his busy day to lend advice to a guy he doesn't even know.
I am so fortunate to have a guy of his knowledge and character who is willing to help me. I now consider him a friend
Guys like him and Tracdogg are invaluable here.

From what Iíve observed on this forum I doubt dub would care what anyone on yelp would say about him or his business.

I mean that as a complement.

I've spoken to DUB twice. The second time he called me out of the blue based on something I wrote on this forum. He's been extremely generous with his time and technical help. Whoever wrote that review sounds impatient with a chip on his shoulder and wouldn't be satisfied by anyone.

If I lived a thousand miles closer you better believe I'd take my 'vette to DUB and rest assured he would do exactly what he said he would.
