This early morning I received an email from Trulia (as I do in all cases when I take a listing) asking about my latest listing.

My guess is no. The merger hasn't even taken place, but I cannot imagine Zillow "permitting" AR bloggers to ridicule, detest and bash their brand. So, will Zillow penalize the bloggers?
