She discussed what we write about other agents. It made a real good point. Some agents post comments on the blogs about other agents, naming names and/ or companies in a negative light.
I feel strongly that this is totally wrong and a violation of our Code of Ethics (COE). I feel it is perfectly acceptable to discuss behaviors and business practices openly as long as we leave off names. I also get concerned when agents discuss things about their clients in a similar manner, especially when they include pictures of their homes that make it clear who they are speaking about.
Have you ever heard the words "law suit" or "ethics complaint"? If you are writing and posting these kinds of details, get ready for your day to get a lot worse. Once that attorney contacts you or the Board of REALTORS® your day is not going to get any better than it is at that moment.
If you feel like ranting, use a little judgment and common sense. Discuss behaviors, professional standards and ethical behavior. Leave off names and details that point out individuals are companies.
What you write tdayo will be floating around in cyberspace for many years. Just remember "anything you say can be used against you."
