Many people can enjoy wonderful homes in amazing places with Airbnb. Airbnb is a unique experience for both the host and the traveler. However, we found a loophole in the system.
I have been a long time advocate for Airbnb and recommended the company. I also have recommended people take before and after photos of the rentals to make sure everything is documented. All of this changed when I was contacted by a small group of individuals who explained how there is a flaw in the system.
On occasion, individuals have received negative reviews from hoasts about their stays. These negative reviews from hosts mistaking a users stay as someone else or the host may have had some actual harmful intent.
These reviews actually hurt an Airbnb traveler because they tell other hosts that the traveler is a bad renter. This system works great when a renter is actually a bad renter. This will protect a host from renting to someone who could possibly do damage or steal from a host. However, when a good renter is given a mistaken review, we found out there is actually nothing that can be done. The user must keep the negative review.
We were contacted about this situation from a user who had before and after photos of there stay. The user actually followed the instructions 100%. This was all documented in photos.
After this user received a mistaken review from an Airbnb host, the user reached out to Airbnb. After trying to contact the host and Airbnb, the company said there was nothing that can be done. (see below photo)
Airbnb is a wonderful way to vacation. Unfortunately, some users have had issues with flaws in the review system.
As of now, Airbnb does not have a remedy or investigation protocol to be more proficient with this loophole. Many who have had this experience have become weary of short term rentals or tried VRBO.

ARO took a short phone opinion poll from voters in 5 of America's largest cities and concluded that African American voters believed Joe Biden was more racist than Donald Trump. The poll consisted of a majority of African American individuals from African American dominant areas. The polling cities included New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and Phoenix.

Additionally, the pool of voters agreed the comments were "condescending".
Government is testing limits.
Forget the reasons for "Stay at home," "Shelter in place," "Travel restrictions," "Quarantines," and "Curfew" orders. The last three months have provided a record-breaking number of restrictions on the American people.
These restrictions, for some, may seem like good policies to provide safety measures. But, what happens when the reasons behind restrictions are not as legitimate? Are Americans questioning the reasoning for the procedures? And if the reasons are not beneficial or provide safety, what can we do about it?
We are not here to argue the reasons for restrictions. We are here to point out the dangers of letting our government roll out restrictions at this pace. These restrictions do not need a vote by the people. They happen so quickly the American people don't have time to ask questions.
This week states issued curfews to combat the rioting and looting resulting from the George Floyd murder by police. These curfews are set by politicians and not by working American people. As Americans, we need to raise questions about what will be best for the American people.
Many of these quick policies are implemented by people who are not impacted by the rules. They are individuals who do not work in factories, do not worry about monthly bills, and do not live in the neighborhoods that are impacted.
What can we do? Its time to brainstorm. Americans need to pay attention. We need to keep an eye on what is happening and who is doing it. We need to ask why and make sure there is a good reason. Every little thing that happens will one day push the pendulum.
