    I find it interesting that I ,an unpaid community activist trying to preserve affordable housing in Chicago is seen as un-neighborly, when YoChicago/BJB violates EveryBlock policies against paid ads for profit making companies,, such as those posted by Yo Chicago on behalf of BJB Properties. It is also interesting that BJB Properties, which took away about 900 units of low-rent SRO housing from the nothside, at the cost of two lives, is somehow worthy defending by anyone and not seen as un--neighborly.

    If Yo Chicago or anyone else stops putting pro-BJB-ads on Everyblock, I promise not to counter post anti-BJB postings to those ads. I will still exercise my rights of free speech if non-ad pro-BJB or pro- FLATS Chicago EveryBlock postings occur.

    I don't think that objective people reading the 5/13 EB thread (SEE:http://chicago.everyblock.com/news-articles/may13-lincoln-park-and-lakeview-apartment-deals-and-finds-6849952/?utm_campaign=digest&utm_medium=email&utm_source=digest)
    and the give and take communication, with questions asked and answered , details exchanged on my experience, the SRO displacement issue, the role of BJB & FLATS, the SRO preservation ordinance, the ARO, landlord property rights. tenant's rights , and opinions, made in a mostly respectable tone by me, would see this discussion as a waste of time or un-neighborly, but I'll let EB and the community as a whole be the judge YoChicago/BJB should do the same.

    The fact that that the 5/13 EB posting, (see link above) has several pro-and anti- BJB posters should indicate that this thread has community interest and some educational value, even if the origin of the posting by YoChicago/BJB may violate EveryBlock rules.

    The fact that that the 5/13 EB posting, (see link above) has several pro-and anti- BJB posters should indicate that this thread has community interest and some educational value, even if the origin of the posting by YoChicago/BJB may violate EveryBlock rules. I hope everyone notices that while I try my best to answer BJB/FLATS defender questions, that BJB and FLATS defenders have failed to answer many or most of my legitimate questions. Also I use my real name and do not hide behind a fake name. BJB and FLATS defenders should be publically identified official spokespeople of BJB and FLATS and publically. for the record, answer my and others questions with the same respect that I have given them.

    Why can BJB and FLATS NOT defend their own actions, despite having many paid professional PR people who should be informed enough and trained enough to defend BJB and FLATS records and reputations?

    Is BJB and FLATS reputations not worth defending?

    Don't BJB and FLATS care what prospective or current tenants (their customers) think?

    Why would anyone want to help keep such a company in business, if they don't care about their customers?

    Ignoring community activists' concerns is one reason that led to the six-month SRO permit moratorium and the SRO preservation law, which restricted the way BJB, FLATS, and others do their business.Why did BJB & FLATS NOT learn from those hard lesson that ignoring the community may hurt them at some point?

    For concerned parents of children or others who attended the Horace Greeley Elementary School or Gill Park or walked past the Chateau Hotel (3838 N. Broadway) between March and early July 2013, when the HAZMAT-suited room gut crews were working please address questions to BJB's point man for questions and complaints, such as those on BJB's Yelp page to :Kearby Kaiser <kk@kearbykaiser.com> or through the BJB's Yelp page at:http://www.yelp.com/biz/bjb-properties-chicago
    BJB Evanston has its own Yelp page at:http://www.yelp.com/biz/bjb-evanston-chicago

    BJB's Yelp page makes interesting reading, as higher market-rate rent tenants of BJB's have plenty of complaints too. It is not just former SRO tenants or housing activists who have problems with BJB. I urge AALL potential BJB property renters to look at the Yelp page and other rating/complaints pages before they decide to rent at ANY BJB property or renew a lease at ANY BJB property.

    It would not surprise me to find that BJB defenders, such as Joe, are paid employees of BJB or BJB's PR firm MAC Strategies Group, or even Kearby Kaiser himself.
