Inspectionnews has some interesting technical threads, but their general “chat” threads have always been little more than NACHI bashing, Nick hating, and self-admiration on the part of a few narcistic building inspectors—but I ran across an interesting discussion that involves Hannigan’s new web site format and how it is affecting the regulars. It is relevant to licensing, I think.
Many of Hannigan’s regulars (“many” being overkill, I suppose, for there are only a few) have expressed their unhappiness with the fact that when the new site came into play…their “start dates” all went to the same day.
You can no longer look in awe at Jerry Peck’s 12 gazillion posts and see that he has been posting at this site for as long as he has. Same with many of the other self-appointed gurus of home inspecting. Instead…upon day one of the new site…they all have the same “start date”…and several are loudly protesting.
Can you see where this is going?
How much less would they appreciate a state where licensing also put everyone at the same level, in the eyes of the public. What would poor Peck do if he had to carry a license that was identical to an inspector’s who is younger than his toolbox? How much advantage would go to that inspector who, on his first day at work, held the same state issued credentials as FABI’s ex-president?
