there’s a startup called peeple that’s making the rounds online, calling itself “yelp for people.” you can review people — and if you know their phone number you can start a peeple account in their name, without their permission

but don’t worry, only positive reviews of you show up online instantly. if someone writes a nasty review about you, you get a text about it, and you can go dispute it! which is exactly what you wanted to do with your day

plus, there’s nothing preventing me from giving my ex a 10/10 rating, just to get my negative text about them posted and indexed by search engines along with their name

the comments about the service are overwhelmingly negative, saying “we don’t need or want to participate in this product” — but the peeple admins are deleting many of those from their facebook page

that seems like a nice feature
