I don't think this is a positive thing for Trip Advisor. I think it just shows that you can send a review and get it printed whether you stayed there or not!!!

DId you read the story? TA knew about this in advance and wanted it. It was actually a great promo and a free TV AD for TA on THE OFFICE. Fans of THE OFFICE are just playing along with it :)
FROM TA: "But not everyone gets the joke. Recently, TripAdvisor added a caveat explaining that Schrute Farms was fictional, Ms. Petersen said. “We had a complaint from someone who had wanted to go there."
So see...it shows the power of TA. People do read the reviews...even if they didn't get that it was a joke

I did read it, and I still think it shows you can send in a review on a property whether you stay there or not. We all know that does happen all the time.

Didn't you read this thread through first? It is a joke!!! It is publicity for the TV program THE OFFICE.
