It's astonishing to look at such websites, and as real estate agents, we are constantly warned not to look at them at all because it's better not to know. That way, you can't blurt out something you'll get sued for later, I suppose. You can read much more in my personal blog today at this link: Why Your Realtor Cannot Show Homes in a Safe Neighborhood.
