Vancouver’s Privacy Scarf

Been Around

This gimmicky idea was last seen a number of years ago. It seemed pretty stupid at the time and even more so now. This time, the ‘stumble upon’ brought new perspective to Vancouver Real Estate leaving some unanswered questions.

Myopic Question

From a self righteous perspective and with more than a little tongue in cheek, one finds when reading a number of Vancouver and Canadian Real Estate blogs that one begins to wonder if some of the editors in chief actually purchased one of “Privacy Scarves.” The lasting question is whether the scarf’s myopic view precludes them from the acceptance of other opinions and the ability to find the web instructions describing the step by step scarf removal process.

It’s hard to keep an open mind. It is even more difficult with a sock over your head. I would like to think I’m lucky. Tugging at the sock was a gift from the famous Scottish poet who constantly reminds me to ‘see ourselves as others see us.’ It is not a perfect philosophy but it does help.

In the interest of battling privacy, would you be able to display the week’s sales numbers and final sale prices?

Sorry – minimal ROI relative to time consumed.

Interesting… are you trying to keep a “privacy scarf” over your readers eyes by refusing to post sale data?

@Vancity Guy

Nope! Call me altruistic if you must, but I have better things to do than compile that data. Perhaps you are offering a fee for this service??? 🙂

But Larry, prior to recently, you were quite active providing those numbers.

You mean someone was offering you fees then and the checks are recently bouncing?

In all seriousness, I used to look forward to visiting your site. Now there’s limited posts and no data. Understood, you do need to keep food on the table so spending your time in fee-generating activities make sense.

Will continue to visit, just less often going forward 🙂

Happy selling.

LOL yes that is true.

“I used to look forward to visiting your site” – geez ‘fx’, you going soft on me?
