Why I closed my yelp account!

Folks: I have closed my yelp account and here's why:
I have been a loyal yelper in Phoenix having been an elite for five years. This year I chose not to apply for elite due to time constraints of a personal nature.

I actively tried for years to get my parents on the site and when they did my mom put up a review of the place she lives. Holiday Spa. It's a 55+ retirement community here in Phoenix. She doesn't work there but has lived there for about 15 years. She reviewed the park after she figured out how yelp works. I was very proud of her for getting "social!" It was a proud moment. 

This park is like Payton Place (hope you get that reference). Or, rather like a Junior High School, in that there is a lot of in-fighting among the residents. Apparently one of them must have complained about my Mom's good review. Now, if you look at my account you would see mine for the community as well. It has been on yelp for quite a while.

The park is beautiful and they have new management that my parents get along with (as opposed to the old manager who was let go for various reasons but has many people who blame my parents for pointing out to corporate her short comings, which lead to her removal.)

My parents wanted a community which is safe and they were instrumental in removing management that did not share that view. They are not employed by the park in any way.
Because you have chosen to disrespect my mother (Lucinda Martin) after it took me SO long to convince her to be a yelper............I have decided that I am not going to help you make money from public driven content (mine!) Whomever "reported" her was petty.

So good luck, and I know you don't need me, but I will also be issuing a notice to all of my social media platforms about how you treat an older first time yelper. Good day!
