I joined Angie's List and found that you could not post any reviews, good or bad, unless the person or company you used had paid to be on the list. Also, Hot Springs is very close to Little Rock.
I tried to find a plumber there. I was charged another membership fee. When I called Angie's List to ask about the charge, I was told that they sometimes charged and sometimes didn't, depending on the number of people interested in checking out another city in the state. I asked how in the world I would know if they planned to charge me.
The dummy on the phone said, "You won't.
We just decide." I told them to cancel my membership. Angie is making a lot of money, but I'm not impressed with what I got for my money.
