Roy Kelley - my answer could be shorter, had you asked what I don't love about ActiveRain.

Though one  thing I like about ActiveRain is - an opportunity to meet you and many more friendly 'Rainers who I can count on and are always there for me, they keep me updated on what's going on in industry and world of real estate.

(Actually I can go on and on and on....)
