I think I understand what you mean, WMH.

I also feel like people here are like friends I haven't met. We get each other in ways that others don't.

Perhaps a friendly associate would be a better description.

To me, A friend is someone I have in my home. A friendly associate is someone I work with, that I am friendly with at work, and am polite and professional to.

I can learn from & give encouragement to people who are different than me, of course (& I believe the same about most of us here). Compared to a 9-5 type job: you don't need to be friends to get along & get the job done.

However, I do wish we all would do a better job of being friendly associates to one another. Those who engage in personal ridicule of others, and insist on pushing their personal agendas urgently & repeatedly can be kind of hard to work with. And they may not realize it, but it makes it harder to seek / respect their opinions on other things where they really may have excellent expertise to offer - because we may just skip their posts.

I still hope to see many of you at 2021 Convention, though! : )

W,

Covid does not divide us, attitudes and remarks divide people. I am embarrassed by some of the recent posts and online arguments.

It's a disappointing some people get into the Top 10 with 3 stars because they post so many argumentative comments.

Just like basic LLing, don't let a few cranky people ruin your fun. Just sit at a different table. I would LOVE to spend time with you and Hubby!

I come here to learn and share. I've no problem debating about the best approaches for tenant screening or landlording in general but I'm not looking to get involved in debating divisive issues like politics or religion. That's not to suggest that I don't have strong opinions, but I find it best to offer those in forums set up for that. If we keep on topics related to the purpose of the forum, then resentments and judgements are largely eliminated and common interests around investment and landlording remain the focus. --209.122.xx.xxx

If threads related to a certain subject are left up and not deleted by the forum owner, they're fair game.

I don't want to see that here or anywhere at all. I will continue to speak out on it until it ends or until the day I die regarding it. I will not atone and will not be shushed because some people don't like it.

It's interesting that 6 months ago folks basically cruscified me in here because of my perspective on it. And how I should just fall in line and do my part because "we're all in this together". And what did I say? Not so fast folks. The gummbermint is not supposed to be doing what they're doing. People told me to ignore my rights and do my part.

And 6 months later, here we are....

And this week, some of those same people are all upset about the CDC moratorium. Why? Because now it really affects them. Where was the outrage before? Why are you just worried about your rights now?

If the CDC moratorium affects a landlord at this point who has been blindly complying this whole time and has done nothing to stop if before now, I don't feel bad for them

In the real world, I don't need stars and I don't need friends. And in today's world, I need people who've been fighting this since the start, not just now because it's just starting to affect their pocket books.

I never got the impression that WMH was saying in any way she only wanted to be around people just like her or who only share the same beliefs.

Like Brad said it’s not the different beliefs that are so bad it’s the attitudes and behavior of some people when they express their differing opinion.

They get so wound up they are unable to consider the rational behind an opposite viewpoint and their scorn comes across as disrespectful. But this is everywhere. You can disagree with someone without being condescending or disrespectful.

None of us knows everything or has a crystal ball. Disclaimer: My viewpoint is more closely aligned with NE. But I think the bigger beef should be with the media- it is mostly a joke. --216.186.xxx.xx

WMH,

I don't post often, but I almost always value your posts.

I don't particularly like people at the best of times and I think I know what you mean; however, unlike others, I don't profess to be in your mind and know what your thoughts are.

It has nothing to do with COVID, and certainly nothing to do with sharing exactly the same viewpoints. I think you may have come to the conclusion that many people (perhaps the majority) are complete a.r.s.e. holes, especially when it comes to political topics - their failure to accept that someone else is entitled to a different point of view is bewildering to me.

Oh, and if anyone reading this thinks I'm calling them an a.r.s.e. hole, please raise your hand and think about if you might actually be one :)

I'm 90% sure WMH's post is geared towards me specifically. Because there's not too many other people that are as outspoken about it on here as I am.

But you see, that's the catch 22 here. People are called out for having differing opinions and the fashion they are presented, yet the people calling them out have their own opinions out there like they are fact.

Doesn't work that way folks.

Also, I wouldn't post on here that I wouldn't attend a Mr LL convention or any other event because I might not like some of the people there. That's not very good for business. --50.107.xxx.xxx

Thats all, I think some are reading stuff into it that was not present or intended.

Brad and I disagree on a lot of personal things! But when I say "disagree" it just mean we believe different things, not that we are going to get in a slap fight over them LOL! Or even exchange heated words.

We would sit down and talk about what we do agree on, share helpful ideas, laugh at the madness.

Wasn't targeting you per se, NE, there are several on here who have changed my original opinion of them by their own words. As I'm sure has happened about me as well - meaning people have changed their opinion of me because of what I might say.

We have to own our opinions. But because it has gotten divisive, it's no fun anymore. --50.82.xxx.xxx

The fact that you can sit down with Brad with whom you disagree but “could not sit down and have a drink with many on here” with whom you also disagree makes me wonder if your original post was impulsive and you’re not even really sure what you believe.

This thread reminds me of way back in elementary school. Starting in about sixth grade for the girls, seventh grade for the boys. Sort of a flock mentality, and the older kids , leaders of the flock would try to steer conversations always to their liking. If one student was sick that day, the others gossiped about how that person this or that. I had a hellova lot of crapola going on in my own family life, so I became a loner. Couldn’t add to the stress at home by having more stress of trying to fit in in school. So, I just decided to put up with sticking out, being separate.

Being a loner has stuck with me, though I had plenty of friends in high school, more than enough boyfriends. ( was well ...ummm... put- together, and can be funny.) Yet, still have maintained a strong streak of...crowd is going this way...I’ll take the road less travelled.

"WMH's point was that she doesn't want to associate with some people here due to their views on _______."

That's not true at all. I can still like someone even if I don't agree with them. There are a few subjects that are beyond the pale, but very few.

But I don't care for "in your face" people in general. I have had my share of tenants like that - no more.

If we don't agree, and we know we don't agree on some point, I would prefer to just drop the subject and carry on about a different subject.

It's when someone won't drop the subject, or starts name-calling and questioning the intelligence of the person they don't agree with OUT LOUD - that's no fun.

I can set here and think, "What an arse!" all day long, but I don't make it a practice of saying that someone's "face." --50.82.xxx.xxx

I have noticed a big change in tone here. As I say, what works for one of us, may not work for others, but it is nice to hear the things that are working. I will even discuss with people who have a different opinion. But it is the tone, it is the name calling and the putting down of people who think differently. Just because people think differently and do different things, does not mean they are #$%s. Even this thread you can see the people who have to call others names because of what they think.

I am not a snowflake that gets offended or upset easily. I don't even care if I am called a name, but I think less of the person who does call names. I think less of a person that cannot just present their side of the argument and listen to the other. --108.4.xxx.xxx

There are people here who I don't always agree with -- like Brad, for example -- who I would love to sit down and talk with even though we have different views on some things. I think we could talk and DISCUSS things even though our opinions on it differ. There are lots of people like that here who I'd love to talk with more sometime.

But then there are those who I cannot "discuss" things with. Those who will immediately call me a "sheep" or worse because we don't agree on something -- who are convinced that they know better than everyone else. I can't have a "discussion" with that sort of person. I have no interest in meeting them in person, of course.

But, really, I think there are only a handful of those sorts of people here. The rest I think could actually discuss things -- even if their opinions differ -- without it falling apart.

It is good to talk to people with different opinions -- provided that both sides can actually see where the other is coming from. Some people just can't do that, so I see little point in trying to "discuss" anything -- especially in person.

But, again, the vast majority of you -- who I might sometimes disagree with -- I'd still be happy to TALK to and discuss those opinions from both sides.

WMH, I would offer this. There have been lots of studies on social behavior dating back to the mid 1980's dial-up bulletin boards. Most of these studies confirmed that people on the opposite end of an anonymous wire are much more likely to yield a poison pen than if they were face to face. So, the science would tell you that a face to face meet would have a different outcome. --64.130.xx.xxx

I think its a sad state of affairs when we cant enjoy a good friendly argument.

Nobody LIKES to be told they are wrong, but that is where growth happens.

I learn the most when I am wrong. Surrounding myself with people who think the same as me prevents growth. Yeah, that means I have to wade through a hot dumpster of garbage ideas sometimes but I still usually learn something.

Identity politics is to blame. Now days if you don't look or think right, you get cancelled or instantly put into an arbitrary group. Your own "group" will punish you for thinking outside the box and other groups will punish you if you don't think inside theirs.

Here is a crazy idea....I think almost ALL ideas have some merit somewhere. Might only be 1% but somehow that idea was born, so where did it come from? If its only 1% right, where did it go wrong? SO instead of shunning someone with a "bad" idea I want to know how they got there. --137.119.xxx.xx

myob: I was thinking the same thing.

I'm sure it is me for some people. I come across as harsh when I'm on a topic that I feel that I know something about (such as Service Animal or ESA laws). And I know that, with some particular people that have named-called me directly, I have not been pleasant. So, yes, I'm sure I'm the one that some don't want to meet. I hope that isn't the case for all, of course.

But, yes, I see the exact same people that I wouldn't want to talk to because I DON'T think they can see both sides replying here saying that they'd be fine. So, yes, I think most people do not see it in themselves.

I've never called anyone a "sheep" or written off their concerns with a statement like "cry me a river." But I see those that have done exactly that now replying here saying that they "agree" with me. None of us see it in ourselves, apparently.

If you come across a post where someone posts a personal attack or demeans another by name-calling or questioning the intelligence of another person, PLEASE send a quick email to webmaster@mrlandlord.com. Such repeated actions will not be tolerated. However, the webmasters have to be alerted because they are not monitoring this forum 24/7.

And to be frank, there has been no need for that. Come on grown folks, we are landlords. We put up with enough stuff from our residents. I don't know about you, but comments here are nothing compared to some of the stuff I have to deal with in day-to-day landlording. That's not an excuse though to be rude to anyone here. Yes, this forum should be a place where we do feel good in our interactions and even have fun in doing so.

You know more so than most how you want to be communicated to and respected. Let's do the same here for our peers who each in their own right, is successful and have a lot to offer. So let's pull out the best from each other, so we all win!

Let's put on our big boy and big girl clothes. I'm still having way too much fun (and growth) learning from all of you. And it's far too much at stake to focus on what divides us, instead of focusing on what unites us.

And for those of you who put your ultimate trust in the Lord, He is still on the throne and working all things together and He finds value in ALL of us and has EACH of us here to provide a needed part to the whole.

Love you guys:) --70.161.xxx.xxx

Thank you Jeffrey.

We are most of us under extreme stress these days, from Covid worries to family separations to NO TRAVEL to CDC guidelines and the whole nationwide "Cancel The Rent" movements.

We should be able to talk here about our COMMON issues and leave off the non-landlord stuff we disagree on. --50.82.xxx.xxx

WMH - your last line - "We should be able to talk here about our COMMON issues AND leave off the non-landlord stuff we disagree on."

I would respectively say, instead of the words "LEAVE OFF" at the end of that phrase, I would suggest "AND IGNORE what you consider the non-landlord stuff we disagree on.

I say that because, what some consider "non-landlord stuff", others (including myself), in many cases see how it ultimately connects with landlording.

You know, I constantly look for how the world around us, other industries and more, relates to landlording and how it directly, indirectly or psychologically can affect or be utilized in our interaction with residents.

So where one landlord may not always see how something going on in the world affects the landlord-tenant relationship, another landlord may offer a perspective where it can tie in.

And we should benefit from the various perspectives all of us have to offer. And I want to always encourage those various perspectives. Has Hammer said above, I don't want to miss out on the potential merit of that 1%, which in some cases may make all the difference.

Again, let's communicate respectively, but I want everyone to know that their wealth of experiences and different perspectives are always welcome here, as long as they are communicated clearly without rudeness, not overly repetitive or demeaning and is supportive or beneficial to our fellow landlords.

We have one rule in the military vehicle club. Treat each other as you want to be treated. It is not always easy to follow in life as we are all different and have our own ideas and view points but for the most part it works great. I miss the truck events as well.

I still say you are all AWESOME!

Thank you for sharing your wisdom to all of us and even to those not so intelligent or educated as myself.

We've got this. --73.120.xx.xxx

Strange thing about conflict.......most of the time people can agree that there is a problem and what the problem is.

The conflict occurs in HOW people deal with a conflict. --24.101.xxx.xx
