Why is Zillow Discriminating against people that are computer handicapped?

Why is Zillow Discriminating against people that are computer handicapped?

 

I'm an agent. I helped an 80 year old man review me on Zillow at my office. He wrote the words on my computer at the Real Estate office. It turns out Zillow rejected his review based on it being from the same IP address as a real estate agent. This is discrimination against someone who doesn't know how to use a computer and doesn't have one. There should be an alternative way for individuals who would like to review an agent but can't do to Zillow's discriminating policy. Restricting members of one group from opportunities or privileges that are available to another group, this is called discrimination.

Any public library would assist a person with use of an internet connected computer.

As for discrimination?  Yes, I've been mentioning it for 6 years; this site is not accessible to the blind nor mobility impaired.  But ADA does not require that websites be accessible.   Even worse, all Realtors discriminate against the blind by not providing sound and smell files, and providing only lousy non-accessible photos.  I don't know any agent that provides the listings in Braille either.  I think I should file a class action lawsuit against agents as they are intentionally violating the U.S. Fair Housing Act.  The Fair Housing act does not apply to "reviews" by "consumers", nor does it apply to media companies that don't intentionally discriminate against any class or group of people.
