Jeff’ are you on some kind of mission from God to reveal unknown secrets of NACHI? Why do you think readers of this site from around the world care whether you stay a NACHI member or not? I don’t! Move on. Use your valuable time in doing something constructive other then bashing this site. I’m personally tired of the ranting & ravings of some so called “professionals” who aren’t acting very professional. PLEASE move to more positive comments. Doug

Yes Jeff,


Please begin to sugar coat everything so Doug Plummer can feel good again.

You mean like what goes on at the ASHI board?

There are about five individuals here and at IN who seem to have nothing better to do with their lives than to complain, usually about Nicks past.
Why don't you go into your own chat room and bash NACHI until you exhaust yourselves in orgasmic delight?

Chad,
You with your "high standards" are the worst offender.

It is not unabashed, it is hypocritical. One who constantly bashes this organization, its owner, and everything connected to it, has the audacity to use it as a marketing tool. Talk about ethics...or the lack of them!

Eric,


There's a difference between prudence and hypocrisy.

I don't post for the exposure. I post because I'm passionate about the topic, and I sign my name because I firmly and wholeheartedly believe that NACHI in its current configuration is bad for the profession as a whole, and I have conviction enough to put my name to my opinion.

It'd be a whole lot easier to post "feel good" messages about NACHI and eliminate the personal attacks and name calling. I could get in the "zone" and cough up my 289.00, take the kiddie test and get ten times the exposure I get here.

For those of you who have "zoned out" and become disciples of Nick and had NACHI tatooed on your butts, instead of calling me names, make the effort to skip over my posts and read the OTHER commentary on the board (and elsewhere) that illustrates many of my observations. Much of it has been postulated by your own brethren.

Regardless, you are still reaping the benefits, although you don't seem to understand that.

It is nice to know that you are "passionate" about the topic "10 reasons that I will not renew." It is a ground shaking topic worthy of all of our "passion." ![nachi_sarcasm.gif](upload://6HQh6KbNiD73gqTNQInjrR2zeJw.gif) ![nachi_sarcasm.gif](upload://6HQh6KbNiD73gqTNQInjrR2zeJw.gif)

As far as NACHI being bad for the profession, NACHI is no worse than the others. I was in ASHI and it was the same as it is here and other orgs. are the same.
At least here, you have the advantage of superior marketing, which even non-members, like yourself, can take advantage of!

Fighting for higher standards and being negative and unprofessional are not the same thing.

If I run a Google on Jerry Peck or Jeff Pope or Todd Allen, I find professional inspectors trying to raise the bar and yet not one post that I would consider unprofessional.

If I was a home buyer, I'd want a competent professional. That's it. But I would definitely have second thoughts about some here after reading their posts.

Just my opinion! That and 50 cents will get you a cup of coffee.


Thanks Jeffrey, but it would appear you have missed some of my " finer" moments. ![icon_redface.gif](upload://f7DX2EWhmUfsDapWaYT3oJHMCj1.gif)

I talked to Jeff a while back and he seems to have his head wired on tite.


He is just really mad at Nick and a couple of others.



I wish him well

Nice Jeff, Chad,


Just because not all believe in your level of professionalism and education in this industry means that you are right and the rest of us are wrong. No one is certainly saying that you are wrong and we are right, or vice versa.

If you truly believe you are promoting the professionalism in the home inspection industry don't you think it is inappropriate to show how divided inspectors are on the subject?

What you call professionalism, the rest of us call anal retentiveness. There is no doubt that you have the angle of the dangle, although the rest of us just tell our clients what is wrong and who can fix it for them. ![icon_cool.gif](upload://oPnLkqdJc33Dyf2uA3TQwRkfhwd.gif)

Maybe between the two of you, could you explain why you have to ram your values down our throats constantly. There are plenty of other organizations that would fit you better than this one.

Joe,


Before I respond to your post, I'll let it sink in a while.

It seems to me that you just said that NACHI is happy with mediocrity...or less and that no one should try to raise the bar.

I'm positive that's not really what you intended to say so I'll read it another ten or twelve times and sleep on it.

For posterity though, I am making a copy.

who spends a great deal of time, mental energy and $ pursuing greater knowledge about building science and better ways to deliver that knowledge to Clients who want or need it, I strongly resent your often unsupported implications and aspersions about one of the Associations I’ve chosen to be a MEMBER of. I personally know of many fellow businesspersons at NACHI who invest the same chunk of themselves in anything but mediocrity, vis-a-vis property inspection.


You and I have already had a brief discussion about the Association you've chosen to be a member of, and the apparent problems that your Association harbors, at least in some quarters. Nonetheless, you'll not find me taking potshots at Dennis or any of your other Association brethren in any public forum. With all due respect, join-up (and help make a positive difference) or shut-up. The MEMBERSHIP seems to be growing tired of sail-filling. We're looking for a bit of red meat from you, sir, and you consistently provide only Quiche. YUCK.

Geez Chris,


I gave him the benefit of the doubt and refrained from any real comment until he had the opportunity to choose better wording.

Read his post for God's sake.. I didn't say it, your own Joe Myers said it.

Gosh, I try to be magnanimous and I get Chris Radan shoved up my butt.

We talked before? I have no idea who you are ...what'd we talk about?

I was really trying to refer to your constant dogging of this Association’s ED, and was somewhat miffed concerning your implied idea that this Association, or its members, are pursuing inspection mediocrity.


And yes, indeed, you and I briefly discussed one or more of your IHINA brethren that are not, apparently, so "Independent" after all. My point was that even though I know that to be a fact, I don't go harping-on your Association's Director, or, for that matter, any of your Association's membership.

Regarding being up your arse, at 6' 1" and 235 pounds, if you found me up your arse, even Preparation H wouldn't ease THAT kind of pain.

Your comment to Joe Myers is not worth noting.

You are not in his league and will never rise to the caliber of individual that he is.

If you are looking to join an Organization, then join one.

If NACHI does not currently fit your need, there are alternatives.

Chad,


Mediocrity? No, I said that you and Jeff want everyone to be anal retentive. Big difference! ![icon_cool.gif](upload://oPnLkqdJc33Dyf2uA3TQwRkfhwd.gif)

Yes, we are happy with NACHI as are many others. I have never thought of anyone here being mediocre, or anything less than good inspectors.

Just what level of expertise are you suggesting every inspector needs to achieve a level of professionalism which Jeff and yourself are seeking? Are you saying that every inspector that is not at least as smart as yourselves should not be home inspectors?

I really would like you to answer those questions.


On another subject or two before I go off to bed, I heard that you were asking where I was.

You and I really have a difference of opinion on that one. I just take it for granted that anyone reading the post is educated enough to click on the profile button under the post so they can read whatever they want about me. ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)

The manner in which you sign your post is more of a marketing ploy, than an advertisement for your level of education, professionalism or your level of competency.

Have a good day Chad! ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)
