    I agree

    The Verge article was extremely misleading. I sent the writer some respectful points about missing facts from her article, and got a nasty gif as a reply.

    - There is NO evidence presented that the credit cards were "burner". Why not? This would make the story true. This is an egregious claim.
    - There is no hard evidence that Uber intentionally encouraged canceling rides, while recruiting drivers. Nothing.
    - Verge said there were internal documents confirming encouragement of canceling rides but quoted only the recruiting emails. There's nothing wrong with recruiting.
