HUD Logos on Craigs List, Zillow, etc. Are we missing the boat?

I wrote this post originally regarding Localism and found out the HUD logo is at the bottom of each page of Active Rain and Localism.  However, the HUD representive I spoke with says all web advertising should have the HUD Logo. 

I just had a thought that I wanted to share with everyone.  Many of us have posted our listrings to Craigs List, Zillow, Google Base and an array of other sites. 

It just dawned on me "should we be using the HUD logo on our advertising?".  Just to answer this question I called the HUD regional office in our area and asked the person I spoke with if we should be using the HUD Logo on different websites we advertise our listings on and the answer I got was "If you want to stay out of trouble we definalty advise you use the HUD Logo on all advertising".  One of you may call your HUD regional office and get a different answer.

I don't see and HUD logos on Craigs List or Zillow ads.  I just had this thought and wanted to pose the question to all.

What are your thoughts?
