See, this is just the story of our collective lives, these boards are nothing more than a cocktail party we were invited to. We get a hot blonde in here and somehow we manage to piss her off and she bids us farewell. Hotblonde, stay a while, become one of us (come to the dark side, we have cookies). Both SD and sd realtors have weathered the attacks to become driving forces in our collective quest to unravel the markets mysteries. Our resident appraiser and favorite sage Bugs, always enlightens us and routinely finds himself in a skirmish. We have cyphire, perry, HLS, JWM, radelow, rustico and a many more that have a variety of personal and professional experiences that make us all better equipped to understand this mess and without them this place would be nothing. Sure, even a few of the more learned folks have taken their shots at you on this thread but how you handle it is what will give you credibility here, part of it is a test and part of it is to get you to see the other side. Alan threw a sincere question at you, answer it with your expertise and ignore the tempo of the thread, nobody can take your integrity, only you can surrender it. I say stick around, jump in on the next hot topic, learn and teach at the same time. This is the dirty dozen and we are in need of a hot blonde and a broker from Pasadena. If you choose to storm out of the party, thank you for the debate and the compliments.
