Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you are of an age when you can remember the slide rule preceding calculators, then making an effort to see this sight may well incite and indulge your nostalgia. Brings back a lot of memories and, if tempted, what is displayed is also still useable.
It is located in the foyer of the Mathematics Building of the University of Tasmania.
