Great Question Angela,
You posted in Feb and I just now found it!
Of course we all celebrate the post make by Ron. Makes me feel I've 'vented' by proxy.
Scott and Jim tend to concur..
Note John comment has garnered 5 TUs. He does a excellent job identifying the 'moral peril' your suggestion would create.
Debra as always, has stated very well the comprehensive picture. What she states is true but one must be careful not to connect what is permissible to some way being wrong. As Debra states, the owner has the brain trust, skill set and resources to steer the ship as they see fit. As actual grown up people, we should be willing to accept that the ship is following the exact course the captain has plotted.
As we have observed by watching so many small business owners (mostly real estate enterprises) come and go, we come to realize it is not competition that causes their failure but they self-destruct.
Perhaps we are aboard a ship headed for the rocks. Be aware, I am imposing my definition of what the 'rocks' are. Trulia may see the very same rocks at the diamonds of which they have been seeking.
DO NOT make the mistake of caring more about something than the owner or beneficiary. Such acts of good intentions ultimately culminate in the punishment of the good Samaritan. Yes, I know, we all care so passionately for the forum provided by Trulia. Where would we go without TRULIA?
Answer that question and the issue dissolves. Answer that question and the administration of Trulia, realizing an option exists, would respond with more transparency and even corrective action. Such action, as we all know about corporations, augment the revenue stream. Be fully aware, YOU WILL NOT LIKE THE ACTION THEY IMPOSE!
One TU for provocative topic
Five TD for suggested solution.
Five more and the post could become invisible
Opps, Corey already posted five TDs....now what?.
Best of success to you,
