I've noticed that Yelp is often really slow to accept and implement
reviews, even ones accompanied by good evidence, of a business closing, 
e.g., when I entered information about a cherished place being
permanently gone and included my e-mail address and cell 'phone number,
etc. -- but the Yelp review continued to claim the vanished business as
operational for years.

I'm sure they rely on a trust-metric algorithm to try to protect against
Internet mischief, so it may be that they accept such updates only from
users with a sufficiently high Yelp reputation.
