An inspector friend of mine sent me this link last night.

Interesting story, albeit nothing new from what we all do and have experienced.

FHB has refused to run a real article on home inspection since it's inception.

The guy makes the mistake of using the realtors geek, gets the set piece result, and now blames the profession.

Which, honestly, is culpable in a lot of this.

Kind of surprised by him. He's no dummy. He regularly contributes to wood web.com. He should know better.

On the other hand, I suppose we should be grateful for his suggestions, and attempt at warning his readers of the inherent conflict of interest that plagues this so called profession, since we as a group have no ambition to do so.

Shame on us, again.
