Tom, thanks ... just thanks ... for expressing appropriate compassion.

After having talked to Glenn Garoutte on the net for months prior to his fatal fall, I learned that he was a very respectul and intellectual gentlmen, someone who will truly be missed in this profession. I would like to think that Glenn made the post in his name and feeling as I do about what happens to us when we die, it may very well be his post.
Respect is not difficult, but many do not seem to be able to figure out how to disperse it adaquately. Its very simple, but we must learn to respect ourselves first. If you have no respect for yourself, you certainly will have no respect for others. There are many varying opinions in this world, however, always remember that we should not allow a little dispute to injure
relationships and friendships. A loving, caring, friendship with others is immortal and will always be remembered. I had a keyboard friendship with Glen and was thankful I was able to share a part of my life with him. I will never forget his positive approach to life and his zest for his family. Out of respect for his memory and what he stood for, I am asking, as a human being, that this site be used for friendships, information, and unity for all who approach this profession.
Bashing solves nothing. Each and everyone of us is unique in this world, and special. Treat everyone as you would want to be treated and the world and this community will be forever grateful and kinder to itself. If you have a problem with a vendor or company, approach them directly to resolve the differences. Don't bash them on this site, please. Roy has extended his hand to us in an effort to help us grow intellectually and to stay informed as to what this great occupation has to offer. Respect Roy Cupps for this, he deserves it.
Share your knowledge, it is a way for you to achieve immortality. Be gentle to each other and show respect. The best relationships are the ones in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other. Be kind, it just feels good.

Good timing for this Bickering thread. The nature of human nature will always lead to differences with adjusters, re-inspectors, vendors, carriers, and insureds. Would like to see more calm, logical case histories of how these type of differences were resolved in a true spirit of goodwill and cooperation. Thanks, Ghostbuster, Phantom, Cecelia, Glen.

Interesting who made the post ahead of yours. Taking Glen's advise is something for all of us to think about. We never know when we are eating out last burger. Wish I had known him.

I would assume that one reason fewer adjusters are posting right now is because they are so busy working. The east coast is slow, but the Midwest is hoppin'.
Another reason fewer adjusters might be posting right now is due to the content of some of the posts. I, for one, am tired of reading posts from those who bash their companies. I agree that if one has an issue with his/her vendor that one should take legal action when all else fails. Vendor/Company bashing is not professional.
I had considered simply not reading and/or posting to this sight for awhile due to the content of the posts that have appeared in the last few weeks. However, I have received some of my most valued information from this sight (location of the DeLorme website, Cougar Paws shoes, Little Giant ladders) and for this reason will continue to monitor this sight. I will probably, to the delight of some I'm sure, not post often or at all. At this point, I really don't care to have my name associated with the types of people who are posting. There are some MAJOR carriers who monitor this sight. And guilt by association is still something that probably occurs.
