Here today gone tomorrow- It seems like posts are disappearing on a daily bases here at ask the inspector. I rarely like censorship and what it leads to. We are all adults on AR and we all (except for a very few) have the ability to read or not read a thread in a forum. Let us decide what we want to read and not rely on a censor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

AllSpec Professional Property Inspections Inc is a home inspection company doing home inspection in Miami Dade county, Broward county, and Palm Beach county. I am a certified inspector by the highest and best in the profession my grandson. See picture below. His testing is second to none and he proctors all his tests and personally checks on my CEUs. If I get lax or out of hand he will suspend my certification. It is the most prestigious and limited home inspection organization on earth. He is currently researching a certified master board certification but he thinks some guy already register it. He is in contact with a major university to start a doctoral program in home inspection. http://www.allspec.us/ Certifier

Posts usually don't "disappear" unless the author removes them.  The "censors" do occassional flag posts and when they do the little red X appears at the bottom of the post showing that the points have been removed.  If you have personal posts that are disappearing you should send a note to AR and find out why.

Mitchell - sometimes posts disapear from various groups because they do not meet the various group guidlines on what to post to the group.

Sorry to disappoint ya. I was just speaking up for free speech; as none of my post has been deleted.

Next time it may pay to go that extra mile to do some research before posting.. If you need help getting your foot out ,I’m sure your rea buddies can help with that removal.

Wake up and smell the coffee Mitch. You seem to be the one costantly getting your foot stuck in all those words you mis-spell. Oh, and you probably ought to go over your profile while you're at it and check for mistakes. Hey, what is "read a tread in a forum" anyway?

I'm sorry for the error it was supposed to be thread not tread. At least I have no problem admitting a mistake unlike some.

It seems that your best asset is spelling and I try my best to spell check but sometimes I mess up and spell check can only tell me if a word is spelled correctly and not if it is the correct word. I tried to help you but you seem to want to criticize the messenger and not the message. You seem to strike back at nonsense versus looking in the mirror.

If you want to be a rea suck-up go ahead but just have the virility to admit it. You should always put your client’s best interest first. Not the rea. You can not be a client to both the rea and the home buyer. Your interest must remain with one not both.

Hopefully I spelled everything correctly and you can try to answer instead of obfuscating.

You insinuate that I have rea buddies, and you know nothing about me, or the way I conduct my business my friend. You tell me to have them help remove my foot, ... how inflamatory is that? If you want true responses to your word-twisting blogs, then maybe you should word them more carefully, and try to stay a little more on the gentile side, and focused on what's really on your mind, istead of trying to defame someone else....can you at least see that point Mitchell?

I am very calm and even tempered, and I respond to everyone in the most pleasant and intelligent way I can, except you, because it seems like you want to pick a fight by your tone and words. I really am trying to help now, and I hope you at least consider what I said when you post. I don't want to (and shouldn't have to) have to defend my every word in my posts to you. I am a peace-loving guy. I'm sorry for the diparaging remarks about your spelling.

I would ask that you go back and read over my other post and comments again, and this time try not to read anything into it that is NOT there. Have a good day, Mitchell.

I just did as requested and sometime words really a group of words have meaning because that have been previous written or spoken. With the meaning well defined. When someone says “save a deal” it has become known in the home inspection world as an inspector who is realtor (spelled incorrectly on purpose) friendly.

That further is defined as an inspector who cares more about referrals that his own client. If you didn’t use those words I would not have made a comment on your blog. You go on and try to extricate yourself from the words by your explanation of the words versus removing the words.

Many a time I have confronted a realtour friendly inspector and you know what? Not a single one would admit it. They play the obfuscation game. Similar to what you did. (Check your spelling, check your profile, not on topic but personal attacks) I have read many a report from a realtour friendly inspector and post numerous links to articles of supposed realtour friendly inspector.

I think they, the realtour friendly inspector ruin our profession and if I see one in blogland I do not go into a cave and quiver. I come out and say it unlike most of my inspector brethren. So the fellow inspectors who get on my case fine I can handle it. Hopping that some potential client will read my ranting, understand them and find a home inspector that works only for them.

If in any way I have offended you wrongly I do apologize.

Hey Mitch,

I guess we differ in how we see things. I do not believe there is anything wrong with being friendly or even helpful to realtors. However, that has absolutely no impact or reflection on my inspection, my findings, or my report. I do not look upon realtors as the evil enemy. But I will stand my ground with them or anyone else who tries to make me sway my inspection opinions for their benefit.

You can take your crusade to whatever level you want. I have found my comfort zone after 23 years in business, and it is not likely that you or anyone else is going to impact that very much at this point in my career.

There are many good realtors out there who are just as interested as you are in doing what is best for the buyer/client. Making enemies out of them does nobody any good. You can be helpful and friendly, and still not compromise your standards or beliefs.

Anyone who has read me this past year knows that to date I have never stepped foot in a RE office.

This holds true up to today.

That being said , I have had many referals as of late from Agents and am grateful for the calls.

With the market the way it is , those referals have kept me afloat.,

I never compromise my report and they all know it, so I can publicly state that my hard line approach was wrong .

My Inspections are never easy going and I state facts with no enbellishments ase always.

Not once have I ever been requested to go easy on a report.The only time I have a problem is with Agents that lie and tell clients a Inspector is not needed.

Those people should be drummed out of the profession.
