Anybody know which yogurt shop was the front operation?

  1. Surely it was a This Can't Be Yogurt store.

    1. I say, keep going!

      Boy, would I like to apply this watchdog to employment sites like Glassdoor!

      1. No specifics about the yogurt shop in the NY Times piece either.

        1. Never cared much for online reviews, except for CH. And even if they cracked down like this in every city I still would never check yelp, due to their elite bs

          1. Does this mean I'm going to stop receiving my checks?
