The site is continuing to lose posts I think. Every now and then I use a link from a stickied post or from my links at Hocoresearcher Labs and find the original post or much of the thread missing.

intercst, do you have past backups of the board? I'm thinking about an archive board ? la SeWeR as some of the choice quotes I've cataloged are starting to disappear.

You mean like these, that I figured Hocus might excise as "Board Moderator" of his own little area? ? ;) ?;D

Gonna answer Rob?

Something tells me this is the post (link) that caused you to claim over on the Plop II comments today that every board admin is aligned in a conspiracy against you; to hide your otherwise perfectly deserving ideas, that would topple the existing financial thinking of the experts and average investors alike.

Rob, get a grip and just consider for a second:

What do you think the probability is of that, Rob, in this day, and in this country, and given this medium (the Internet)?

Do you really think any good idea could be stymied if it stood up to scientific and factual scrutiny?

You aren't bein' oppressed, Rob -- you 'aven't got a womb!!!!!! ? Grin

Hocus, You own a Blog. You pay an ISP. So hopefully, you have some idea how it works: The Golden Rule: He who has the gold, makes the rules.


There is Free Speech on Planet Inarwebz, but not Free Camping. If you wanna talk, make your own spot, like you did. Otherwise, you get the environment the proprietor at the board wants. How hard is this to understand? You have been banned 15 times, because 15 times the board's owner/operators decide to eject you as detritus; antithetical to their purposes.

That is their right, their privilege, and their obligation. They own no obligation or allegiance to you, nor any imaginary Kommuniteeeezzzz you have cooked up in your mind's eye.

Is this getting through?

There was a thread at the Vanguard Diehards board in which people were asked to name their favorite posters. Two names near the top of the list were Microlepsis and JohnDCraig.

Those people are my friends. If they're interested, that's good enough for me.

Then how come they are not hanging out and posting at Maison De Krazy at:

That's why we have seen such interest in our discussions of the past six years.

Rob


Then how come the only two participants by and large at the very hub of the movement, your own website, are you and JWR giving each other a reach around?

How come JWR's place is a ghost town with only dust bunnies and "Letters to the Editor" from you as grist for his own gap-toothed broken down mill?

Answer THAT truthfully, Rob, and you might be getting somewhere.

It's not places that prefer Passive Investing over Rational Investing, Schroeder. It's times.

Passive Investing always becomes popular when prices are wildly out of control. That's when large numbers permit their emotion to dominate their reason. Surprise! Surprise!

How many such iterations from good methods to evil Passive Investing have there been, Rob? Can you please provide some evidence of this oscillatory behavior (besides your own verbal claim -- i.e.e a book, an article, a link to a website or database.... something.)

* What terror?
* How much was the take in inheritance/gifts
* What happened to Boo and the kids?
* What has your actual Withdrawal Rate been?

Are there large numbers of Passive Investors at these boards? There are. Does the discussion of Rational Investing strategies cause the tummies of some of the Passive Investors to hurt? It does.

You know what? That's the price of being taken in by Passive Investing.

Rob

Rob, this is the problem. You wanting to impose yourself, your ill-formed ideas and your invasive nature into places who do not want it and should not have to put up with it.

Good luck working that out. I will tell you that Cookie Thorton and Jim David Adkisson did not win in their own similar Jihads.

Rob and JWR are exchanging love notes in the comments secion. This paragraph caught my eye . . .

**LINK**
Quote:
I of course do not mean to suggest that there is a majority at any of the boards that is in entire agreement with the Rational Investing approach. That is obviously not the case. But I see that as an opportunity, not a problem. The reality is that these ideas have not been much discussed in recent decades. So there is a great opportunity for a Learning Together experience.

You must not be looking very hard, Rob. I suspect there are as many discussion boards that talk about non-Passive Investing approaches as there are discussion boards that do talk about Passive Investing approaches. Why don't you seek out the discussion boards that talk about non-Passive Investing approaches? I'm sure they would be much more open to your ideas.

Don't you see that trying to talk about non-Passive Investing approaches in places that prefer Passive Investing approaches would not work out very well? How would feel if a devout atheist walked into your church one Sunday morning and insisted that the parishiners shouldn't hold their religous beliefs? Maybe the atheist even says that his non-beliefs are the Rational way to go. Do you think that is going to be very persuasive?

Think about it.
