Not for nothing folks but you'd a thought that anyone who lived through The Thornbury debacle would have sworn off of trusting vendors with business and personal client data.

In reality though you really have no one else to blame but yourselves, you know who these people are. The people who come up with the very idea that a 'service' business can be based on the collection of personal data have fractured values and low ethical standards to begin with. They actually believe that they can honestly barter with you for access to your customers personal data and you have the right to profit from the transaction, it's just the way they think and it would be foolish to have thought otherwise of them.

Anytime you benefit by exposing your clients security you have to know its wrong.



Yes, I'd personally choose a CMI every time over every other inspector. ~ Nick Gromicko, InterNACHI Founder

I helped create the HON Professional app for home Insepctors to get tech support. Then I helped recreate that app for home owners to ask questions and refer their inspector to friends.

I mourn the passing of the ISN that I did business with. I'll be evaluating alternatives and moving on. Thank you to the folks at ISN who made it what it was. My condolences to you.
Hi Chuck Evans. I am Bruce out of Walnut Creek, Ca. I am new to both ISN and Porch so I have little history or experience with either of them. I'm curious about the before mentioned abysmal record from Porch. can you elaborate on this for me a bit so I can evaluate my future association with them. Thanks. BB

Hi all.

Thinking about working with Porch and ISN but all this back and forth makes me think twice.

Will Porch really spam call my clients?
