Default QuestionsOfTheWeek August 13

Welcome to another round of Questions of The Week!

Questions of the week:

Please Read the Introduction and requirements, changes may have been made.

A member of the Award Committee will post a question, at a random day/time.

A competing member may make one post per question thread to answer the question and the member's winning entry must have all parts of the question answered completely in that one post. Editing your one answer post allowed will result in disqualification.

Winnings will be limited to no more than three times in a given year, the objective is to allow as many Members a chance to win as possible.
Any disregard to the above and divulging the correct answers or giving hints/references will cause a disqualification.

So please refrain from participating if you have already won in the maximum for the Year.

First correct answer (as judged by the Awards Committee or Poster of the Question) wins.

The lucky winner will get a case of "Now that you've had a Home Inspection Books" shipped to them at their address on file. Make sure your Address on File with Inachi is correct.

Winners of the Question of The Week shall request their prize by emailing fastreply@nachi.org and submitting their Mailing address for shipping.

Allow 2 weeks for delivery.

**At this time, responses are open to all inspectors who have not won during this calendar year.
If no correct answers, the responses will then be open to others at a time determined by the committee.

I luv ya brother and the feud with Marcel doesn't help the Awards Committee move forward and remain relevant in helping the general membership. Is it possible for you guys to avoid the award's committee's threads with your innuendos? Sure would appreciate it.

My post #1 was an appropriate, common and accepted response on this MB.


Marcel once again "poked the bear".


As always, I am 'Switzerland' until I'm provoked!


Have a nice day.

Sorry Jeff, it is not appropriate when you are feuding with a member of the awards committee. It appears you set it up to be poked. I'm sure you read the introduction.

Please work it out so we can move forward and remain relevant to helping the general membership.

Lots of Doc appointments tomorrow. So I won't be back soon.

Have a good night.
