18. Dont do this, but
Comment: So how much traffic will this post drive and how many home will it sell? Playing on peoples emotions to get traffic is a low life move.
My response: Neither traffic or selling homes is the point. At all. I should have just deleted your comment, particularly since you dont have the guts to put your name on it. But instead I left it as a reminder to people that the internet is full of assholes.

I saw your response to the idiot on your blog. Any agent honest enough to call out a site visitor is the right agent for me.

I can get market stats lots of places. I come to your site to get your opinion on things. I do like your statistics articles where you interpret the results and describe what the data means. Too many places just throw up a chart and expect me to interpret it.
If a neighborhood post is one I'm aware of, I read it. If not, I just skim it to see if its an interesting place.
I love your random musings. Always entertaining, I think it just shows who you are.
