The “owners” of a listing are not allowed to review themselves. We also limit users to a single review of each provider. This is built into the software and is also in the policy statement. We are adhering to general policies adopted by the Rating and Review Professional Association.
Several contributors have asked if they can remove their listing. This is addressed in our FAQs:
We only remove directory listings for individuals and companies who stopped providing interpreter services. This is a consumer-rating site. Think about this as an opportunity to promote your services and get valuable feedback from deaf clients. Listings for ratings are created by users. Users include interpreters, consumers, and others that have registered on ASLGrades.
The owner of the listing may post a comment with their listing to support, or rebut a rating or review.
