This is a great free web site that helps you calculate time-related dates and deadlines. There is a lot of date and time calculating functionality, but as a lawyer I use it to calculate deadlines moving forward. A deadline can be calculated from any time perspective -- past, present or future. It has a very helpful and reliable date calculator!

Yelp is a very dangerous way to advertise your business. They filter out really positive reviews so no one can see them, but they can leave in negative ones. No matter how legitimate the positive reviews may be, Yelp filters out 5-star reviews if the reviewer is not a very frequent reviewer / member. So Yelp is slanted toward people who review many businesses. If you're not a restaurant or other high volume business, you may not get tons of reviews and the people who review you may not be frequent Yelp reviewers. Yelp will not remove negative reviews, and you can't get them to unfilter the positive ones. If you get lucky with keeping positive reviews, good for you. But Yelp can really hurt your business if you're not careful. They also call you up and hound you to sign-up for expensive paid advertising and a larger profile, but I understand this doesn't help any, and they are completely insensitive to your experience on Yelp. They're money-grubbing, callous people who hide behind the law to protect how their automated filtering "algorithms" can ruin businesses. Be careful creating a profile on Yelp; it can do a lot more harm than good.

I would give 0 (zero!) stars if SiteJabber let me. PeopleSmart scams you by charging a reasonable fee for one look-up and a 7 day "free trial" but they don't tell you about the $19.95 monthly charge in the fine print if you're not lucky enough to get them to acknowledge a cancellation during the 7 day "free trial." I tried to cancel my account during the 7-day free trial, actually suspecting they might try to charge me afterwards (even though I received no notice about the monthly charge), but they didn't honor my cancellation and proceeded to charge me for 3 consecutive months on my PayPal account before I noticed it. I did call to complain, and they reversed two charges -- saying they could only go back 60 days. Anyone who has been scammed should call them up and demand a refund. It's shameless. Even when you try to cancel during the "free trial," they don't let you. Shameless!
