I don't mind their answers as long as they have a profile photo (that should be required if they're going to be a Real Estate agent) and the questions aren't test questions. I have taken RE exams for 2 different states. Who knows, maybe I'll take another someday. In the meantime, I don't want to answer exam questions. I'm fine with answering practical RE questions. I've noticed a couple students recently introduced themselves, have a profile photo of what appears to be them, and they ask questions that may apply to their practice. I ignore the others.

I always wonder if they are reading the answers. Twice in the last couple of years, a student had reached out thinking me for leaving answer that he could use. One even followed up that he passed his test. I wish more would do that.

When I read your title I thought you were going to suggest Google which also has the answers.

I doubt that the answers are what they are really seeking, or the lesson they are learning.

Perhaps they are seeking interaction, and learning how arrogant and cruel this field can be, especially with the mask of the internet between the parties asking and those answering.

No one, whether a student or old fart asks a question on Active Rain is search of an answer or solution. All questions are merely an action to solicit approval for the undisclosed action they already committed to do.

At least the students are transparent and we can choose to skip the blue head group.....but we are TEACHING students what some real estate agents are really like. That may be the entire objective of the instructor.

Their insider joke is "Guess who will throw you under the bus?"

Maybe there should be a separate category created for "Student questions"? Then you can filter them out if anyone is not interested in answering them.

Or, maybe there could be an "etiquette" statement to read before posting questions.

Nobody knew there would ever be a "Google" when I was a kid. I had to go to the library to find answers. Or not. Maybe one of the 35 editions of my Encyclopeida collection covered it. If you exhausted those 2 ideas you had to just find somebody who knows & ask them.
