Your question actually addresses other important things.

One thing is, "Is their any valid reason an agent is not a member of ........?" When so many things are beyond our control, the care and feeding aspect involved when an organization pulls the plug leaves professionals with a lot of unfinished business. Be aware, we really don't know what the future of Active Rain is.

The other point is, "Trying to be EVERYWHERE has consequences." When you OWN it, you have a bit more control. At any time Internet users and SM participants can be 'deplatformed' and essentially be out of business.
