So the "Mortgage Research Center" aka the "FHA Loan Center" is having a little contest... Oh, won't they be surprised..

I assume that eventually they'll pull HousingPANIC and any other bubble blog from this awards "contest", the likes used by traffic-deprived blogs like Swann's ("he who shall remain unlinked") to dupe the unsuspecting into visiting their sites.

But since HP'ers have absolutely ZERO reason to visit the "FHA Mortgage Center", a site set up by the "Mortgage Research Center", who being 'masters of the internets' also have niche sites here and here, is just another one of many for-profit lenders posing as if they are unbiased, patriotic, caring and pro-consumer, I thought it would be a terrible hoot to win their little "contest", while giving them the traffic the so crave.

Until they get wise and pull us of course..

So do your thing HP'ers - just click on their nifty banner, then click "vote" - should take about 2 seconds, no registration needed. You can vote once a day, and let us know when they finally get around to kicking HP out of the contest. Thanks to a couple of HP'ers who pointed me this way btw...

Ah, I love REIC hi-jinx. Any other website we need to hit (and screw up their google search results) today?

Fly monkeys fly!

Hi Keith,
I just voted and the count did not switch from 5 to 6 as it should have. What is going on?
I'll check it again. Just wanted to let you know.

if you use tor to protect your anonmynity(sp?) on the
net you can vote as many times as you have patience... just change your identity on the tor menu and delete their cookie and refresh the screen - it lets you vote again and again and again -

I learn a lot at nail shops. Weird, I know, but every time I get my toenails polished, I come away with a new revelation or epiphany. Must be some way to claim my mani’s/pedi’s as a tax deduction.

So, yesterday, I had about 45 minutes to kill before my next appointment. I needed a manicure and saw a cute little nail shop, so I popped in for a quickie (manicure, that is).

As those of you who get regular manicures know, before your nails get polished, you have to go wash your hands to get off all the chemicals and lotions that the technician has been using on your fingers.


Unless keith is gonna talk about painting his toenails?

One thing about realtwhores/flippers is that they're beyond parody. The reality they inhabit is so twisted it would give Dali nightmares.

We were in 5th when I voted. Everyone should do so. We don't have to win. It's enough that when these other idiots cast their vote and look at the leaderboard they see HousingPANIC near the top - it sticks out like shit in a punchbowl among those other REIC shill sites.

They will know that they cannot escape reality, they cannot escape us. In the words of Ricardo Mantelban in The Wrath of Kahn: "I will chase you round perdition's flame".

Make sure you vote often. NJREREPORT is an awful blog and should not win first place!

Keith,

HP is listed three separate times in that contest.

Chris said...

I put in the 300th vote for HP. Let's keep this gravy train rolling.
