TRAVEL WEB­SITE ADDS WARN­INGS FOR VI­O­LENCE

National Post (Latest Edition) - - WORLD - The Wash­ing­ton Post

In re­sponse to wide­spread crit­i­cism f or r e mov­ing claims of sex­ual as­sault from i ts fo­rums to keep them “fam­ily friendly,” TripAd­vi­sor has started plac­ing warn­ing sym­bols — or “badges” — on the re­view pages of ho­tels and businesses where rape and other safety in­ci­dents have been re­ported.

The travel and restau­rant re­view web­site has so far placed warn­ings on the pages of three pop­u­lar re­sorts in the coastal town of Playa del Car­men in Mex­ico: the Iberostar Paraiso Maya, the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo and the Grand Ve­las Riviera Maya. A warn­ing now ap­pears that does not cite spe­cific re­ported in­ci­dents.
