    Would it be possible to have a forum or two that only members that have faxed proof of being in business could access? I give the young people credit for going out and working and it's great that some homeowner with a question can come on here and ask advise but it would be nice to know that you are talking to another tax paying businessman. We could fax a business license or insurance accord to prove we actually have a "business".
    After all... we are "professionals" growing together....just a thought

    So how do you "prove" that the faxed paperwork is legit?
    On and on it goes......................

    Once again I'll ask, how do you know the notary seal is legit?

    OK..so out a the 30,000+ members hare lets say 25,000 are really in biz.. so a few send bad info they might get in...if they want in that bad, let em. At least customers couldn't just show up and the 14 yr old "professional" would have to work hard to fake it.

    OK, I don't want to argue with you so last post.........
    Who is going to look at all this info every day and decide?
    If I were Sean I wouldn't and I already know Sean's response.
    But, that's just my opinion.

    I wasn't arguing...I was having a conversation...I didn't think about the bookkeeping aspect of it...that would be tough...it's just an idea and it would be nice if there was a way...and I understand no more posts from you...

    You are probably right...I would even pay a fee to be part of a proven only section.
