      You have to be very brave to write a bad review on Angie's List because they give your identity to the contractor and there is a good chance that he is going to go after you if you wrote a bad review. As a consequence there are very few reviews if any for someone who is awful. Most reviews are positive and often are solicited by the contractor. I know of someone who was offered reimbursement by the contractor to go on Angie's List and write a positive review.
