Travel review site TripAdvisor has chosen to abandon the genius idea of releasing a "Dirtiest Hotels in America" list. Why? They want to "focus on the positive."
Stephen Kaufer, the chief executive of Trip advisor told the New York Times:
We want to stay more on the positive side, so we'll continue to feature the best destinations, the top hotels. We're slicing and dicing the 'best of' in different ways this year, more than focusing on the negative.
You know, there's something to be said for focusing on the negative.
