I'm a blogger, hear me roar

By
Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

I have lost 44 pairs of posts, wrote them out by design
I have written and posted 2 dozen comments,
Well before the clock struck nine

I read that tub of lard's post about dual agency
Threw up in a bucket, went shopping and kicked him in the can.
Cause my points have gone missin'... M-I-S-S-I-N, I'll say it again!

 

All of June has been scrubbed, 'till it's shining like a dime
The post about babies, and cars and showings on time.
I know I've messed up, I'm up typing 'til four a.m. and then
Lie down for a minute, jump up and I'm in it all over again.
Cause my points they're done missin'... M-I-S-S-I-N, I'll say it again!

 

With apologies to Peggy Lee, Helen Reddy and Oprah... especially Oprah.

Alan - I am no poet, but I know it!  So, I'm really impressed with your ability to put into rhyme what we are experiencing!

Alan May - Well, at least dime and time rhymed!  I haven't had my morning coffee yet.  Everything rhymes when that happens!

Love your expression, still getting my breath here in PA over everything I lost, not just points, but posts, that sense of fufilment on completed posts and features. But, we plod on, whatever the time till we get that next post finished.

Alan, what's sad during two weeks of mgt. silence is lack of acknowledgement about those under 500K who took the brunt of the June fiasco.  It's far more complicated than lost posts.  See Dario Ferreria's detailed tech explanation in my Q&A earlier this week about blogs whose id #s were reassigned to other members.  This presents legal liability issues yet some over-500kers (not you) who are home free in their freebie status are almost glib not dealing with the reality of an unsafe, unstable platform financed by the under 500k class. 

Having worked in learning and development for years before RE, I often praised the education and networking here but now it's time to call out the sham and silence.

The under 500Kers took the brunt of the hit and they paid $199 to take it. Has mgt. assured restoration or compensation for those who paid to lose their progress, time, content, points, blogs, even their blog id# ursl?  The under 500k are financing a glorified social network and deteriorating blog platform, the core AR business that used to be top notch, the best in the industry. 

Now mgt. refuses to support it while investing plenty to launch and hawk a CRM and wealth seminar to further monetize members already paying for a progressively decaying site.  How does anyone with integrity encourage under 500kers to pay for insanity.  We are not here to keep the lights on for freebies. 

I'm a blogger, hear me Roar!!

I too had hoped to see you sing this little ditty on TikTok. Darn it all.
