For the uninitiated http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/oct/01/peeple-review-people-the-user-review-app-you-didnt-dare-ask-for
But isn't that just the Meow Meow Beans episode of Community?

In favour of 'reccomendations' You also have to pay them a dollar a month for the privilege
And what a premium - 'The Truth License' will enable those who choose the upgrade to see everything that has been said about other members, whether they have chosen to share those comments or not.
So relaunch the app with changes to address many of the criticisms, and then add a premium upgrade which bypasses most of those changes.
