Above all else, it looks shady from the outside. Developers should never
risk their credibility or reputation on the off chance of coverage. But
there’s something more troubling than credibility at stake here. If this was
to become a widespread policy across the majority of media sites, you’re

reputations. If we let this become a precedent, it’s sure to spell more
trouble for both yourselves and the developers of the future.
My reprieve from yard work yesterday turned sour when the heating guy showed up
to find out why the heat on the second floor isn't working. Flash forward to
midnight, where I am paying off the plumber for a few hours work installing new
relief tanks, a few other new fixtures, and a new pressure reduction valve, as
our old one had failed, leaving our home plumbing to deal with water pressure
intended to distribute water over several square miles. And at the end of it
all, only one radiator out of three on that floor actually gets hot, and the
other two just warm up a bit, so we never even completely solved the original problem.
