Last year when the Redfin Bay Area RE forum was running, my first post was an attack on members of the forum for what I perceived as an attitude of ridiculing posters who rented and missed out on buying low or chronic renters, and members generally just bragging about their investments and returns amongst each other.
I took exception because when I first found the Redfin forums, I was seeking buying advice and hear about members’ experiences whether it be fixer-uppers, putting a pre-fab home on an empty lot, etc. I didn’t see much of that and lurked on and off. I felt there was a clique and outsiders weren’t welcome.
After a series of posts, I felt paranoid and terrible about myself so I disappeared.
I managed to locate this site a couple of weeks ago and I lurked again seeing how you guys just share investment advice and post banter like friends.
I am truly sorry for offending/attacking those of you from the Redfin days. You may or may not remember or don’t even care anymore but i have to clear my conscience.
