I'm sorry, but the rules are the rules, and we can't have a productive discussion with an anonymous source making statements with hidden intentions, nor would we allow one of the most visited websites in home inspection to be utilized as a link farm for an unknown resource.


Then I will take my last opportunity to say "adios".

If you change your mind, you know where to find me. http://homeinspectiondigest.com/

The point would be to lighten-up.

Sure, but we don't allow anonymous posting here, so kindly add your name to your signature line and we will allow you to continue to post. Your content is by your own admission from an anonymous source, which also means member's only discussions would be had with someone acting anonymously and would make members of this forum less than comfortable in sharing ideas and concepts.

If you want to comply, great, otherwise I have to abide by the collective voices here crying foul.

Further, don't disrespect me and the other users here again by telling me to "lighten up". Asking for your identity or for the intent of your posts is reasonable, if you disagree I would suggest you participate in one of the lesser industry forums.


It wasn't intending to be an insult, I was describing "the point" of my comments and the Home Inspection Digest.

Having raised a teenager or two, I have quite a bit of time, and money invested in RC vehicles.

When it comes to RC cars and trucks I have learned that you can expect two things.

First, no matter how agile and durable, they break, and they break regularly. The market for RC parts is huge, and there is a reason.

Second, even in the most pristine terrain, you will, on occasion, have to walk over and right the vehicle because it flipped over or got stuck.

And this all occurs on open terrain that you can see with the naked eye and with the most experienced operators. Yes, there is a learning curve.

The idea of sending a $2500 vehicle into inaccessible and unpredictable territory is a non-starter for me. I can’t imagine the dread of driving away from an inspection knowing I’ve left it in bowels of some fixer-upper.



This is not your kids' RC. This is a durable and sizable machine.

Further, regardless of the terrain, it will not have to be flipped over, due to its design. We've tested this thing in hundreds of very difficult crawl spaces and only had to manually recover one unit- which resulted in a design change.


Cool. Do you have images of the actual test unit, and actual inspection images or video?

Your famous last words are not showing me at all. Reading your stories is not doing anyone any good. Still do not see the point.


I guess I can explain...

When I said that HID shows everybody in the same light, I did not mean to say that everybody would be included in every light.

We will take your critique under advisement.
What were the home inspector's famous last words?

What’s flooded?

Why are the smoke alarms still going off?

It didn’t work when I tried it?

Do you have a shop vac?

Do you have a bandage?

What cat?

...?
HID shows everybody in the same light, especially ourselves.

...as an example: http://homeinspectiondigest.com/i-hate-carpet/

The only thing controversial about our site is that we are saying what everybody in the real estate business already knows. Our driving motto is simple, "houses are easy, people are complicated."
Nathan,

If I have intruded on your personal space, I apologize. This appeared to be an open forum. If our anonymity is an offense to you, please excuse the intrusion.

It is not our intent to prothletise, but to entertain.

Sincerely,
The anonymity is simply because our authors are active home inspectors and the insights we write about may have a negative affect on the relationships we enjoy with our referring real estate agents. We want to keep our day-jobs.

A quick read of our content should make the reasons for our anonymity a little more clear. The Home Inspection Digest is a new idea, a new perspective, an untechnical look inside...

But, in spite of all that, our perspective, our stories, are just humorous, humorous and familiar. Our experiences are apparent in our posts.
The anecdotes write themselves; scenes you have been in.

"Disclosing the undisclosed, what the home inspector didn't tell you."

...and we are always looking for contributors.

Thank you for your curiosity.
Thank you all for the welcome, and being inspectors ourselves, we accept and understand some degree of confusion.

I always thought DLKLLR might help keep away the riffraff. So I suggested it to one of the new guys in the chapter.
Good day,

This is HID, from the Home Inspection Digest.

Our inspectors, authors and contributors are looking forward to taking part in discussions here at the Home Inspection Forum, and we offer up our insights and information for discussion.

We are new, and we are different. We don't write about the technical, we barely write about homes. We write about the people, the buyers, the sellers, agents and inspectors, in other words, we write about the biggest unpredictable variable at any home inspection.
