This is an excellent question. Of course you should have no expectation I will parrot the common sentiment.
Let me point out the best advise provided so far:
Phil - Don't sweat the small stuff. (this is really, really important in all of life)
Russ - Read the question! It's about reporting not pasting.
Yanoska - 20 line signatures (we all have our buttons)
Bill - understanding the basics
Lori, the only way to control the behavior of others is through accountability. You do not name the transgressor or provide a link or paste an example.(No accountability) Rather than run to mother with your problem, you need to make the transgressor, NOTORIOUS! Oh, you may perceive THIS to be a violation of Trulia rules. Now you have a choice.
1. Results (create accountability)
2. Continued dissatisfaction (reporting. flagging)
3. Don't sweat the small stuff. (Note: It is a big, big, mistake to care about something more than the owner cares about it.)
Clearly the action (pasting) is permissible by Truila. Case closed.
HOWEVER...(this is important)
as the consumer experience deteriorates, they, (buyers, sellers and home owners) will need access to timely, reliable, relevant, comprehensive, accurate data. For those who have eyes that see, this is a real opportunity.
No it is not wrong to 'report,' but as you have experienced, don't expect satisfaction. Trulia, a marketing company, has different goals that you, the real estate professional. Never forget this.
Many self-appointed Trulia policy police will find their action will back-fire. DO not make your case about violating TOU on Trulia, but about what is revealed about the poster.
Those of whom we complain are simply those with the courage to walk through and open door that others ignore. That is not wrong. They are simply demonstrating a better understanding regarding how to get the most "bang for their buck." Viewing the big picture should encourage others to go out and do likewise. If the "Trulia brand' was in danger, there would be action taken by Trula. Clearly Truia's goals and the goals of those who participate seem divergent. Image that!
Best of success to you,
