Is up at Rain City Guide.
There are plenty of posts worthy of reading by real estate-related professions, but also for real estate consumers and voyeurs, notably:
Divorcing the real estate commissions …
Expected rate of decline of home prices in the next year
It’s a bloodbath and time to swim with the sharks
To clarify on my entry that was selected (thank you Ardell!) – the email signature digression was quoted from the original article. That it was distracting is evidence that that type of repeated disclosure is unnecessary and clutters things up.

Any licensed real estate agent must make that fact clear, when spouting about real estate on a blog. There we disagree. How else is the public to know that the Bubble Blog advices are not from licensed people, if they can’t distinguish between who is licensed and who is not?
Licensees should also NOT be permitted to be “anonymous”, whether they are the the blog host, or someone commenting on a blog.
The whole point of licensing is being able to track people who impact consumers. Blogs are no exception, and no agent should be able to hide behind an anonymous comment.
Oh, no – I absolutely agree that we must disclose. I think that adding that signature –
to the end of every single form of communication is silly.
I’m with you on the anonymous comments as well, but it’ll probably take 5 years for us/them to work through the the right law/rules and by then, the “professional” bloggers will have (hopefully) already sorted things out their way.
