Message boards were never designed to be bashing boards! It is absolutely amazing how much we can help each other, and learn from each other, if we keep the message board a place of positive input, free from the attacks of
men or women resentful of anyone who may be doing just a little better , in life, than they are. If we stay positive and focussed ; we can help ourselves, as an industry, and as individuals, to move forward, to grow and to prosper, even in a depressed market! I have done thousands of inspections, on a variety of homes, but there are still lots of unique scenarios, I have not experienced, and maybe never will. When I do , however, run up against something I can’t figure out through logical deduction, or have never seen before; I want to be able to come to this message board, knowing that I can share my predicament, fully expecting to find answers from one of you, who have knowledge in an area where I lack experience. I have learned so much, over the years, just reading this message board, and putting into action, the truths I’ve discovered. There is not one of us, that knows all, or has experienced every possible scenario there is to experience. There is an amazing wealth of knowledge, in the combined experiences of the thousands of real life inspectors, who call Inachi their home; not to mention the thousands of other top notch inspectors who have not yet discovered the benefits of joining Inachi. I am 100% in favour of a tightly monitored message board, where strict rules apply to slander, defamation, and foul language. I learned a long time ago, that hard-core cursing and swearing doesn’t make me more macho, or more of a man; in fact I believe it takes a much stronger man, to control himself, his thoughts , his words, and his actions, than it does to just let your emotions control you. Let’s keep the message board totally closed to anyone that does not have a personal interest in where Inachi, or Cannachi is headed. In that way, we can better protect ourselves, our values, and our awesome association! Let’s really pull together, and make this thing work. We have the power!
