Notorious Ripoff Report has just launched a new "service" - a $89/m subscription to allow business owners NOT to get published on their site. Most of us know that 90% of the accusations on the site are pure libel, and that anyone can post a fake review, anonymously. RR never takes a review off, regardless of any circumstances.
They're well aware of the power position they have and this just seems to be an evolved version of negative seo 2.0; instead of paying to get links removed, you're now paying BEFORE links get published.
Pure blackmail if you ask me.
