Tenant Net, you need to re-read this string and clarify your statements. Only rent-regulated apartments are registered in NYC; free market ones aren't. I know you like to advocate on behalf of privledged rent regulated tenants, but you should recognize that the apartments most typically available to the newest and poorest New Yorkers aren't regulated at all. They're free market apartments, even illegal apartments.
I also find it surprising that you and Chelsea would respond to someone who basically seeks to have another tenant removed and take over her below-market rent apartment. If anyone should be called "greedy" here, it is the questioner. Rent regulation often brings out the worst in people as they seek to gain cheap apartments through personal and political connections, or by underhanded moves.
This much said, I am not going to respond to further posts in this thread. I think each person's response (including mine) speaks for itself.
