need help to approve NACHI courese for cont ed. in Wash state

Gee Bobbie,

I see nothing’s changed - you still blather on like a sycophant.

Dirty little secret? What have you been smokin’? I was never a member of NACHI and was never kicked off of this board. Anyone that says different is a liar and I’ll happily say that to his or her face, including your’s. Just gargle first, OK - I hear you’ve got a little halitosis issue going on.

Your stuff was edited at TIJ because you were repeating yourself over and over again and not contributing anything new to the dialog. Here’s what you do when you want to win an argument, Bobbie - you repeat yourself over and over again and never change your tune or present a better argument. There’s nothing more boring than reading a thread where one guy says the same thing 30 or 40 times because he can’t accept that someone else doesn’t share his opinion but he’s incapable of presenting a more convincing argument - that’s you Bobbie - blather, blather, blather.

What do they call it when someone repeatedly does the same thing over and over again and expects a different result? That was you, Bobbie and apparently you haven’t changed. Think about getting some therapy, please. An anger management course would probably be a good idea too.

Re your second little rant, I don’t think I ever said anywhere that inspectors in my area don’t take CE seriously, unless your referring to that select group of folks who want special treatment and don’t want to have to comply with the law. I don’t know of anyone here that thinks they should be allowed to get away with that and I certainly don’t. Thankfully, their numbers are very small and so far about 500 inspectors have fully complied and are doing what they need to do to get their CEU’s done for their renewal. Except for this little wrinkle where these few inspectors are trying to get special treatment things are actually going very smoothly.

I didn’t say anything about inspectors cheating or that I approve of cheating. If you think I did, I suggest you ask someone with better reading comprehension than you possess to read my posts and explain to you exactly what I did say.

Nighty Night, Bobbie.

Hey, you’re quoting your own actions!:stuck_out_tongue: Talk about needing some therapy sessions :roll:

Ah, cool, another sycophant with a reading comprehension problem heard from.

No, there’s nothing more boring than reading a thread where a guy can’t accept an opinion from someone and is incapable of presenting a more convincing argument Thus the attack by calling me another sycophant with a reading comprehension problem. Now that last quote was very convincing.

Now go back and re-read those two paragraphs again. The issue is not my reading comprehension, but your own boring repetition and weak presentation.

Irony at its best.

The above example is why Mr O’Hand started his own blog.
He is the biggest control freak on the planet.

I can just see the furled eyebrows and sweaty upper lip as he hits the delete button only to realize he does not control this forum.

Over at his place the regular posters march in lock step for the most boring threads I have ever seen.
They take turns congratulating one another for being so right ,while others just get their posts edited down to where he finds it acceptable and with in range of his own view on the world.

Go ahead and start posting over there and see how often he chops up your writing without your permission to suit his desires.

Nick has got to fight people sitting on State boards controlled by ASHI guys who think like Mik’o.

He would rather Home Inspectors in his state take a soft,basic roof course 10 times over ,than let someone actually learn something new with a NACHI course.

That my friends is a real control freak ,with an agenda.

Here we go again; Bobbie is off on another blatherthon. :-({|=

Well, I don’t actually have a blog. I have a webzine - there’s a difference but given your limited capacity to understand simple concepts, I don’t expect you to understand the difference, Bobbie Boy. :sarcasm:

I like it! It sounds so…Doctor Evilish. :mwa-hah:

Yeah, I have to admit; Bobbie Boy, things over there have been a little more peaceful and professional since we asked you to take your blather and buzz off.

Gee how I only wish that were true. Sigh. :frowning:

Yeah, that could happen; violate the forum rules over and over again as you did, Bobbie Boy, and they’d be shown the door. However, the number of times that’s actually happened over the past 8 years has been pretty few.

Now, if **you **had actually **read **the rules and did what you’d said you’d do when you signed up at TIJ and clicked that you accepted the terms - obeyed the rules - you wouldn’t have ever had any of your blather deleted. -X

Well, I’m not ASHI, haven’t been for about 8 years. I went independent when I started TIJ in 2002.

I agree, if there are boards out there that are being controlled by ASHI guys, they need to be fought. That’s why our HI licensing law only allows two inspectors affiliated with any particular HI association to sit on the board at the same time.

There are more independents than there are inspectors in any of these so-called associations, so it’s pretty unfair that those in the associations are the one’s that everybody listens to when it comes to deciding rules for the majority of us.

Still, I wish more ASHI, NAHI, AII, and IACHI guys thought like me. That’d be pretty cool! :stuck_out_tongue:

Wanna show me where I said that or even implied it, Genius?

What I said was essentially that I believed that it should be up to the individual inspector to decide which courses he wants to take and if the inspector feels he or she needs to repeat a course in order to better absorb the subject matter that’s the inspector’s business. As far as the NACHI courses (I thought the term NACHI was supposed to be verboten over here or something), show me where I said that I’d rather have someone take a course ten times over rather than take a NACHI course. You can’t can you? Blather, blather! :-;;

It’s that reading comprehension thing again, isn’t it? I know, it must be frustrating when you aren’t really good at something and you keep screwing it up; but keep at it, Bobbie Boy, I’m confident that sooner or later you’ll get it. :wink:

Yeah, what he said. Hoo-ra! :mrgreen:

Please show us in the history of your webzine as you refer to your personal blog (forum to heavily edited/censored) to be considered public),where you have anything positive to say about NACHI(I can call it what I want )there you go stirring trouble again.

Once NAHI disappears, Nick can call it that too.

Have you seen this yet Dr Evil?

I think you can guess what he is leaving.

Maybe you could put that on your landing page.

I won’t hold my breath,but will ask why the Association the Home inspector scam artist belonged to was important to headline on your landing page.

You have a history of driving away NACHI members from your blog—(cough-cough)-webzine.

Second request is to show where you have ever lead off with a negative comment for ASHI or NAHI.

I don’t belong to any of the associations, Bobbie and I don’t have any loyalty to any of them. You want to know what I’ve said good about interNACHI? Go to TIJ and do a search and do some reading. Oh wait, I forgot, we’ve already tried that and you’re not really very good at that. OK, well, I suggest a daily dose of Sesame Street on PBS. It’s sure to improve your reading comprehension.

Why, thank you Bobbie, for inviting me to talk about TIJ here. I usually try to avoid talking about TIJ here the same way I try to avoid doing so at Inspection News, but since you asked, I’ll be happy to oblige.

No Bobbie, I wouldn’t use that on the landing page. You still don’t get it - that’s not news. That’s a guy changing associations. Now, I suppose if it were Bill Clinton, or Apollo Ono quitting one and going to the other it would be news, but that’s not news as far as any of us is concerned. Of course, with your limited capacity you might think it is.

You have to ask how that works? What, don’t you read the paper or read magazines? Jeez, no wonder you have such a reading comprehension problem. By the way, that website of yours? Tsk, how embarrassing for you!

The problem with trying to keep folks abreast of the news, Bobbie, is that no matter how you present it, you can’t please everyone all the time - you can only please some folks some of the time - and there’s always going to be someone who’s pissed off.

It’s called a hook, Bobbie; and it’s a well worn practice - in fact, Nicky uses it a lot on this site and so don’t a lot of the folks who post here when they entitle their own posts. Jeez, if memory serves, you’ve done something similar, haven’t you?

If you saw a headline, which one would you be more curious about and more likely to stop and read?

Man Shoots Wife Then Self in Murder/Suicide.
Postal Worker Shoots Wife Then Self in Murder/Suicide.
Postal Employee: Ex-Special Forces, Kills Wife Then Commits Suicide.

You can deny it, but you know that you’d be attracted to the last one because there’s more going on there.

Here’s a headline: Man Bilks 80-Year Old - some folks will see that and skim by it. Why not, they’ve read similar stories dozens of times before. Why bother?

Here’s another headline: Home Inspector Bilks 80-Year-Old - Now, to a readership of regular folks, that really wouldn’t mean much, but home inspectors will have some interest in it.

You know that if you were to read that you would instantly wonder to yourself something like, “I wonder if that assh*** belongs to one of the associations or is an independent?” and then you’d look it up.

You also know damned well that if you’d seen that before me and it had been an ASHI, NAHI or AII guy that you would have posted it here and trumpeted the fact that a non-iNACHI guy was a slug, but if it were an interNACHI guy you would have still said something here, but kept it kind of low-key. Don’t lie and try to deny it, 'cuz you know in your heart that what I’m saying is true. The types of stuff you have a history of posting proves it and everyone here knows that.

So - interNACHI Member Bilks 80-Year Old - and it becomes of extreme interest for home inspectors of interNACHI as well as interNACHI’s competitors. It’s no different than a sports headline that says UDub Trounces Wazzu - it’s not a lie and both the UDub folks and Wazzu folks are interested enough to read it. No malice intended, that’s just the way our minds work and that’s how it’s done.

When I looked that guy up, he could just as easily have been an ASHI, AII, NAHI, or CREIA guy and I would have written it up exactly the same way, leading off with the association 'cuz that’s the hook. If you think any different, you don’t know me even 1% as well as you think you do.

Really? I hadn’t noticed. The forum count is now at 7102 and climbing again. There have been 178 new members who signed up since February 1st and 382 have signed up since the first of the year. Toss out the usual 2% spammers that try to get on and that’s about 374 I think. The last time I looked the email list was over 14,000 and climbing again after a drop of about 30% last year between election day and April 1st (S’funny how that percentage mirrors the drop in the number of home inspectors nationwide over the same period, isn’t it?). If you don’t believe me, just go to TIJ, click on members and then when the members menu pops up click on the head of the “member since” column, count the names and look at the dates. Oh yeah, that’s right, you said that there are only ten people that stop by there - I forgot. Sorry, my mistake.

What, you’re fingers are broken? Excuse me, Bobbie, but why don’t you take your fat backside over to your computer, go to TIJ, click on advanced search, and do a subject line search for ASHI or NAHI and tell me? Do you seriously think I care or that I keep some kind of a scorecard about that kind of stuff? Jeez, you really, really are a sycophant and you don’t even realize it! It ain’t healthy Bobbie; please, get some therapy. However, before you do that, put down the bottle and go to bed. It’s past your bedtime.

Oh, by the way, thanks for the opportunity to talk about TIJ and clear the air. It’s so much nicer when we have these little chats; don’t you think? :wink:

Your true nature sure does come out over here doesn’t it.

I have no reason to do any searches as my couple years reading your drivel and meglamanical ramblings was enough to convince me that you are still ASHI even with no card.

One team one fight tells all as it shows a subconscious desire for all to think as one,meaning under your control.

TIJ is the biggest snooze fest on the web.

The headline could have been Home Inspector bilks rather than Nachi.

As to my being thrown off your pathetic blog I still remember the circumstances.

You told all TIJ members to take their links to NACHI off their sites.
According to you back then NACHI was nothing but a link farm and Google would ban any sites with links to them.

As for talking about websites ,at least I do not go around screaming fire when there is none, as in your pathetic attempts to undermine the membership here.

I am still surprised Nick did not sue your a s-s.

Nachi is not a link farm as you claimed and the site has only gotten stronger along with the many links that point to our members giving them a stronger internet presence than they would ever get anywhere else.

We also have free websites for members so they can add their own content .

The list of articles , videos,and inspector finder URL’s gives NACHI a giant footprint, yet you still tell people to avoid linking to NACHI as far as I know.
Are you ready to recant?

You sure like the word syncophant, is that your new word for the day ,designed to impress us with your writing skills.

If you are executing your reports in this manner, the clients must have no idea what you are saying ,or is that the whole idea?

Tell Chad ,Kurt and the gang I said hello.:slight_smile:


More Blather? Jeez, Bobbie, shouldn’t you be sleeping it off by now? Now you’re bringing my reports into it? With the kind of writing you’ve got on that website of your’s? Please, stop, you’re embarrassing yourself.

Poor Fellow, go to bed and then when you wake up in the morning please make an appointment with a therapist 'cuz you’ve got some serious issues. There, there now, it’s OK, Bobbie. It will all be OK.

You sure are doing a great job promoting your site ,with your idiot remarks.

Are you on something?

I know that is a pretty liberal State you live in ,but you really need to find some kind of peace.

Try exercise or maybe see if you can get a job.

Guessing your own site is so boring , you come here for something to do.

I have more than one site buddy and am doing quite well ever since I stopped listening to all the poor advice I was reading over at that website you drove to the ground.

Maybe if people were free to disagree with you ,others could actually learn something.

**Type 1 Control Freaks: The Type 1 control freak is strictly attempting to cope with their anxiety in a self absorbed way. They just want to feel better and are not even very aware of you. You will notice and hear their agitation and tentativeness. They usually do not make much eye contact when they are talking to you.

Type 2 Control Freaks: The Type 2 control freak is also trying to manage their anxiety but they are very aware of you as opposed to the Type 1 control freak. The Type 2 needs to diminish you to feel better. Their mood rises as they push you down. They do not just want to prevail; they also need to believe that they have defeated you. They need you to feel helpless so they will not feel helpless. Their belief is that someone must feel helpless in any interchange and they desperately do not want it to be them. The Type 1 needs control. The Type 2 needs to control you.**

I am guessing you are a type #2.

Ooh Goody, now we’re cutting and pasting. Good boy! What’s next? Wanna play fetch?

LOL, I wonder if anyone else has noticed that by his last string of posts a certain fellow in Chi-Town kind of fits #2 to a T? (Cue Outer Limits theme)

The cat is tired of playing with the mouse.

Your Avatar picture says it all.

Wow Bob! You’re turning into a Raymond Wand. You got kicked off a moderated message board. Get over it. Take your meds and go play with your Gargoil.:p:p

Yeah, frankly I was; so I went to bed immediately after I hit “submit reply” According to the time postings on this thread, I went to bed a full hour and twenty minutes before you made that last post above, Bobbie. That means it was 3:52 am your time before you finally stopped hovering over the thread waiting for me to respond.

Wow. :shock:

My apologies to the folks who’ve had to suffer through this. If I’d realized that Bob was so obsessed I wouldn’t have continued to goad him along for so long. :oops:


You actually had everything you needed to know in Rhonda’s response to you and all this melodrama wasn’t necessary. Rhonda is really a very sweet lady and she really cares about the home inspectors in the program that she manages.

She actually got all choked up and teary in September when she told the board about one elderly inspector from the East side that took the test and failed it. The inspector was so crestfallen that he was ready to throw in the towel; but Rhonda encouraged him to take it again and to calm down and not to over-think the questions too much. Then she called around and found an open seat for him at one of the test stations on the last day that he could be tested before the deadline. On Monday, August 31st, he’d driven several hours to the test site, took the test again, passed it and then drove over the mountains to Olympia and arrived in her office with the test results just before close of business and she’d been able to issue him his license.

I think that inspector’s determination and grace, were the reasons that he was successful. His attitude was a far cry from some of the folks who walked into the DOL office at the last minute and leaned over the counter yelling at her when they hadn’t even bothered to try and make an appointment until the last minute, couldn’t find an open seat at the test center closest to them and weren’t willing to drive to a test center that had open seats in order to be licensed by the deadline.

Just don’t mistake her caring attitude for weakness; she won’t allow herself to be bullied by anyone and she won’t break the rules and put her job in jeopardy no matter how loud an inspector yells or insults her on the phone or in person.

Again Ron, my apologies especially to you for not simply bowing out instead of jousting with Nick and poking Bob with a stick at the expense of your thread.

O’Handjob is a legend in his own mind.

He has an obscure blog lost in cyberspace that he maintains as if it has “members” who visit it…and those posts that agree with his are allowed to remain, helping to advance the false premise that he is relevant and actually contributes something.

The outcasts of the profession…that being, the boy from Massachusetts who Daddy brought into the profession and couldn’t make a living at it and now sells real estate services in Mexico…a self proclaimed expert in antique housing who acquired his skills changing tires and belts in his auto service garage in Rochester … are about all that you find “frequenting” (if one post every 90 days is considered “frequenting”) the mighty blog of mini-Mike.

Now…his “one team” of himself and whoever might agree with him…is busy fighting to keep competition out of their market in Washington through legislation.

Whoever called him a “control freak” actually understated this perv’s role in our industry.


So now we have another example of example #2 above. Sorry Ron, I tried; you don’t deserve to be dissed like this.

Linus you are verging on stalker status.
Go hang out at O’Handjob’s site if you love him so much.

You can trash NACHI together from over there ,now that you are ASHI.

Dr Evil
I often stay up late doing reports from over the weekend wrapping up the weekend reports ,so that they are ready by early Monday morning.
Unlike you I am a working Home Inspector and put actual research into what I write.

You would do us all a favor if you took your ball and went back home to your pretend kingdom where you have pseudo importance or relevance in your own little head.
You have endeared yourself to no one here other than Linus who more than likely simply is attracted to my pet name for you.:twisted:

I notice that you have no certification of any kind , but claim to Inspect according to both ASHI and NAHI standards.

Perhaps you could go post over on there MB’s.Oppps that’s right you can’t because they will not allow you to.
I certainly can see why, since the one association that presently allows you to post is where you spew venom and you prove to be an unwelcome guest.

By the way you will find that our forum allows you to subscribe to a thread and get alerted when a new post is made.
I have no need to hover ,which you obviously have been doing,so just subscribe to the thread and you will not need to.

Personally I have had enough of your jousting and poking as your presence on the forum gives me a bad vibe ,and I have wasted enough time viewing your rambling thought process.
