It still is there, sort of... The first post has been hidden or something. Maybe it got too big? Hopefully they are tryin to fix it.
It took a few minutes to load.
I agree with Kristin. I recommend that VRBO give this topic and discussion a "high priority" in terms of their web based support infrastructure. Perhaps even dedicating a special "section" to the topic. It is apparent that we have "overloaded" their current capacity with this discussion. Which indicates how important the discussion is, and also how many folks are involved in the discussion.
In addition, I suggest that VRBO and Homeaway help contribute to support legal costs that may be incurred to fight these proposed laws. Think about it. If Hawaii passes these laws, and vacation rental by owner types of enterprises "close their doors due to the excessive cost of compliance" then the same folks will cancel their VRBO and Homeaway accounts. This will result in declining revenues for VRBO and Homeaway. I would think that VRBO and Homeaway would have a great interest in seeing these types of proposed laws squashed, to the point of helping with the cost of squashing them.
While waiting for the other thread to come back. Just want to let everybody know I posted a blog here
