Personal attacks are not going to be allowed here. In my post yesterday about landlords, user Hedge posted this comment:
Idk. I kind of like that idea. What do you have to hide as a landlord? Seems fair. Asshole wont fix a damn thing. Wants to raise the rent cause college is in? Last tenant had a fucking pig in the back yard. Fuck that. People ought to know and it’s coming so sell or get ready.
And yes I do work for a large property management company in a college town for 10 years .
Fuck landlord scum. It’s all about the money so shut up and spend it or get out of the game fags.
First, let me explain to you how renting a house works. The lease lays out exactly what the landlord will do, and lays out what the tenant will do. That lease is a legally binding contract. If it says the property owner has to fix something, he does. If it doesn’t say so, then he won’t. Once that contract is concluded, that property owner is free (in most states) to charge whatever he thinks the market will bring.
As a landlord, I will tell you that the house I am renting is a large investment. That quarter of a million dollar purchase price isn’t the end of it. My insurance went up by 15 percent this year. Taxes went up by 10 percent. Landscaping costs are up another 8 percent. On top of that, I have to price increased risk into my prices.
As an example, one property company in Milwaukee filed 850 evictions in two weeks. Why? Because the eviction moratorium prohibited them for over two years, meaning that as many as a third of their tenants owed as much as $17,000 in unpaid rent, with the total being $5 million in lost revenue. That money has to be made up somewhere, and that means higher rent.
As to Hedge the commenter, I want to point out to you that back in June, you were bragging about how you are making a 6 figure income selling weed while calling bloggers a bunch of beggars who keep talking out of our asses. Maybe you should use some of those huge profits to buy a house, instead of bitching about how the man is ripping you off. As a business owner, I am sure you understand about pricing, costs, and profit.
Then you decided to come after me for getting the vaccine, even though I plainly said:
I felt it was best for me, so I got it. That may not be the same with everyone. Each of us has the same right to decide what medical care is best for us. Not everyone has the same medical situation, and there are no one size fits all solutions to ANY medical situation. You do you, and I will do me.
This blog, like my rental property, is owned by me. I pay for it, and I decide who gets to use it. Since you have decided to call me scum, you are cordially invited to fuck right off. Three times of personal attacks is two times too many. Hedge, you just earned yourself and your entire IP in Norman, Oklahoma a ban.
