Letís make it very clear: This blog was created for educational purposes and is paid for by the three bloggers or their firms/organizations. Eric Glazer, Darlys Walker and Jan Bergemann are the three bloggers and we are setting the topics and we are writing the blogs.


For many years it went peaceful and nice and everybody seemed to be happy with the contents. The comments were civilized and referred to the topic of the week!

That was until a few months ago when two new posters appeared on the scene. They have tried to take over the blog and flooded the blog with their comments. No matter what the topic: They know it all and were not afraid to give legal advice in their posted comments. And we have seen quite a few serious mistakes in the interpretation of the Florida statutes. Remember: Here in Florida there is a big difference between condominium statutes (FS 718) and homeownersí association law (FS 720).

I already had to block one of them because of his offensive and insulting language.

Letís make it very clear: In our blog we are asking for comments Ė comments related to the topic of the week.

We donít need Blog-Hogs, Know-It-Alls and People who need to get rid of their frustrations to fill the pages.

Iím sick and tired answering e-mails from frustrated blog-readers who write privately because they donít want unwanted responses to their comments from other blog readers.

If you donít like the bloggers, donít like the topics or what we bloggers write, please remember: Nobody is holding a gun to your head forcing you to read the blog, comment on it Ė or visit the website in the first place. If you feel you know it all and need to write lengthy interpretations of what you think the Florida statutes Ė or governing documents you donít even know Ė say, please create your own blog, attract your own readers and discuss with them what you think is right.

Please donít use our blog as your mouth-piece.

So Ė here is the deal: We want to have a peaceful blog, with friendly comments written in a civilized manner.

I donít want to act like the CAI or some well-known media outlets deleting comments or even removing the comment box at all.

But if certain people force me to do what needs to be done to get back to our former ways, Iím gladly making a few clicks on my computer and block folks who donít follow the guide-lines.

Please be nice and friendly Ė and treat each other with respect!

Jan Bergemann Jan Bergemann is president of Cyber Citizens For Justice, Florida 's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group. CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in community  

associations. He moved to Florida in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the developer cheated the homeowners and used the association dues for his own purposes. End of retirement!


CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in Tallahassee - finding out that power is only in numbers. Bergemann was a member of Governor Jeb Bush's HOA Task force in 2003/2004.


The organization has two websites to inform interested Florida homeowners and condo owners:

News Website: http://www.ccfj.net/.

Educational Website: http://www.ccfjfoundation.net/.

We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all service providers surely have a different interest! We are trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking in Florida !
