An enlightening article on recent Sarasota Association of REALTORs (SAR) actions are questioned
. The Sarasota Association of REALTORs recently acquired a ruling that allowed them to gain control of a website that Marc Rasmussen had been using for 5 years – this story has been widely publicized on the internet.
It appears this isn’t the only questionable action that the Sarasota Association of REALTORs has taken. In this article, it appears that the local SAR board leveraged the notoriety of one of their member’s sites – to push their own site, promotions, and agenda. It calls into question the motivation behind the actions of the board, and why they are so insistent on hurting and competing against their members – instead of promoting the welfare and the best interests of their members in the first place.
Its almost like the SAR board doesn’t have a true understanding of how the internet works, and are taking a caveman approach toward creating their own internet presence – and if they have to crush their membership to do it, so be it.
