They can only do it till they get caught. And I have no problem contacting the Arizona DRE about possible unlicensed activity through our darling little message center. They're always quite appreciative.

Promoting here or anywhere is a NO NO. 

I wish I understood the intent behind the question.  Are you referring to older profiles of people who were once agents and no longer licensed?

Does this question refer to people who were active and have an account and went inactive. Of course the answer is no. I am just wondering if the intent behind this question has to do with cleaning house in the activerain membership of inactive and non-agents profiles. -K

IMHO If they left the business they should update their profile and their signature block that they are no longer licensed as of a certain date. But their past blog posts should remain as they were. 

People in any profession don't delete their body of work just because they retired or moved on to other things.
