  Is 25 words enough? Yes Should we require more feedback in order to reBlog a post? No Do you think reBlogging is the dumbest thing of which you've ever heard? No Do you have no idea what a reBlog is? No   The reBlog concept is a really good idea, if used properly. When we first launched it, tha...

Apparently the author sees no use in tipping her hand quite that far by noting that the ultimate in rental-centric societies are also the lowest per capita income generators. Noooo, that equation don't work." That's the truth!   The a...

I wrote a post about a week ago asking the question: Is it unethical to point out false advertising to the public?  I was pleasantly surprised to see the post featured, and because of the "gold star" many Active Rainers chimed in on the issue. Without recounting the details of all 127 comments, t...

  A new Active Rain feature arrived just now.  The previously optional commentary for re-blogging a post is now mandatory and must be at least 25 words long.  Just so you know!   . ... how many times does this have to be said !     I had a showing today with a buyer who was SUPER KEEN to see a sp...
