    Exclamation A warning to all from InspectionNews

    Thanks for all the professionalism on InspectionNews. Yes, that is said with a great deal of sarcasm.

    During the past few weeks I have been dealing with some family medical issues and when not involved in that working late nights for clients to earn a living. I will have to admit that moderating (what should be a self moderated) board can not be on the top of my priority list. For those of you that are sick of the antics on InspectionNews I do apologize for that.

    I have gone through and read the recent emails of reported posts and have dealt with many of the issues. While I may not personally reply to your reported post I have looked at it and/or dealt with it.

    I am going to try and do a better job of moderating but I will not sacrifice my productive billable hour time to do so. It's tough times out there and we all need to earn a living, including me.

    While several of you are still poking at each other the result is that you are poking at me as well, making my life difficult. I don't have time for it and will not put up with it. If any other threads like "to the thin skinned" pop up they will most likely be deleted before they have a chance to get out of hand as this one did.

    So what does this mean? You may see more threads disappear, more infractions given out and possibly more accounts deleted. Whatever it takes to bring InspectionNews back to what is was meant to be "...to have peaceful, educational and informative discussions related to the inspection business. Please discuss the topics and do not get into personality conflicts and/or arguments.".

    I still encourage everyone to report new post that you feel are breaking the rules of the board. The more individuals that report the same post the better the chances of it getting tended to.

    Thanks Brian. I appreciate the time and effort you put into this board that is a source of great information to all inspectors. Sorry that it is necessary to corral the kindergartners at times.
    I for one do not take for granted the board or the effort you put into it, keep up the good work, and thanks again!
    I hope the family medical issues work out well.

    Brian,

    I am sorry to say that I was not reading or posting as much as I used to, because the general feel had become unpleasant. A real shame. This is a tremendous source of knowledge, information and communication. I also believe that it is possible to share this knowledge and experience in a polite and professional manner. I too appreciate your time and effort.

    Some people will always be a lot of work. I get my answers here to things and many times hear things I need to hear for future reference. Thanks Brian for this site and I hope that those involved can control themselves in the future.

Also the retired person who has picked up where the old AD left off is getting old as well. Thats my 2 cents. Thanks Brian, this is a huge wealth of info. I appreciate people like Jerry P for his knowledge, and hate for "subpanels" and Rick H from Texas on his humor. By the way Rick, are you sure that flashing on your new porch is correct? LOL.
    Since I'm from TN I guess this was directed to me, but then I will not do more than 10 inspections a week and I prefer to do only 6-8 per week.

    Sorry, but I do not sugar coat things to make folks feel better. Anyone entering this profession or is just considering the HI as a profession should go to this site. http://www.costofbusiness.com

    It is very telling once you realize what is involved.

    Brian, sorry if I have caused you any grief over the years.

    Not really sure what needs to be reported from that post HG, but if it makes you feel better, by all means.

    I agree. HG stirs the pot up more than anyone, is rude, arrogant and abusive, and feigns ignorance to his actions.

    Report that.

    I thought that this post was over. However since it has risen up again please let me give some of my experience from maybe 4 years or so on this site. Scott has been always very interested in sharing his business knowledge with us. Maybe once he and I got into something in my early days here. I know now that he was right looking back with lots more experience in our business. I can not say that for some others who prey on new people and try to show them now wrong they are and not in a very helpful way. Whats needed here is not a monitor but some self control or maybe this very important site will stop. The agressive marketing by some members is just awful and not at all helpful.

    For full disclousure purposes I am not an ASHI member.

    Thanks for letting me share my thoughts with all of you.

    As you've since deleted it prior to your post above, apparently you agreed at some level with its inappropriateness.
