Urban Spoon allegedly discounting votes?

Receiving reports this morning that “dislike” votes submitted to local restaurant review site The Urban Spoon have been removed.
After learning about the alleged deceptive branding practice of local donutter Peace Love and Little Donuts, members of the LGBT community went to Urban Spoon to share their opinions. The approval rating sank from 70% to nearly 40% in 12 hours.
This morning the site shows a 70% approval rating and the total vote count is more than 30 votes lower than Thursday evening. The Urban Spoon had earlier been removing negative comments posted by voters.
The Urban Spoon has issued no further comment on the issue of marketing/branding as a legitimate criteria for reviews, nor on the alleged targeting of LGBT voters.
