The horror stories of social media gone astray are covered in depth, especially when they are related to anti-Yelp or other anti-review sentiment.

One recent case has soared into the outrage stratosphere, as a small inn in upstate New York City has been called out for a policy that ostensibly charges weddings a $500 fee for any negative Yelp review. The inn in question is the Union Street Guest House, and has been drawn into a widely controversial stream related to discouraging negative reviews.

First reported by gossipy Page Six, the original policy stated:

Please know that despite the fact that wedding couples love Hudson and our inn, your friends and families may not.
