Zagat Voting

It's Zagat voting season, and that means the Zagat will give you a free guide in exchange for logging on to their site and rating your favorite and most hated restaurants. Savory Tidbits takes issue with the implicit problems with the setup: "The fact is that Zagat has no way of knowing if a person has actually been to a particular restaurant...The second issue relates to the commercial impact of a positive Zagat rating, its affect on industry behavior and the difficulty of filtering out bad votes. It's apparently a common practice for restaurants to reward chefs based on their Zagat food rating." [Savory Tidbits]
