What was going on in the Consumer and Recreation forum that IRS found objectionable? Were there a lot of political posts?

I think the upshot was that as a 501(3)c org, having stuff that was obviously off-topic from investing might not be an overt problem if it is incidental and limited, but at some level, if it is 'on the books' and consuming resources, then it could be seen as not consistent with the stated mission of financial education, thereby putting the tax except status in jeopardy.

If the Federal government is going to grant them a tax exemption, they should be required to open the board to honestzzz posting on safe withdrawal rates and many other critically important investment-related topics. The ban on honestzz posting on what the academic research of the past 30 years says about stock investing is against public policy.

If you cherish lying and ruining internet communities as much as I do, please support me by buying many copies of my vanity book. Your children will love budget sex and your purchase is tax deductible (Schedule A: casualty loss).

Luvya Boo! Please come back. I'm on TV now! A big star. Just like you wanted.

Hocus, I thought you were politically conservative? Do you really think it's the business of the federal government to tell online discussion boards how to deal with their troll problems? That doesn't sound like a small governement position to me. Bogleheads have honestzzz and open discussions about SWR's and all sorts of investment topics on a daily basis. It doesn't make any sense that you should demand they be required by government edict to allow a narcissistic, pas_sive-aggressive, mentally ill internet troll like Rob "Hocus" Bennett to post at their private board. Hocus, Bogleheads don't want you or your Hocomania Routine. That's why they and all the other most popular online personal finance discussion boards and blogs banned you. Allowing a mentally disturbed troll to post does nothing to enhance reasoned conversations about personal finance or any topic. But thanks to the gracious support of John Greaney, you're free to talk about all your Bat$hit Crazy delusions here at the HocoPlaypen til the cows come home!  8-)

Yep Hocus, smoking a little grass is worth a try. Couldn't hurt! You'd still be a narcissistic, pas_sive-aggressive, mentally ill internet troll after toking up, but a least you'd be more mellow! However, a better option than pot would be to seek the professional psychiatric evaluation and treatment you (and your family!) so desperately need. Godspeed Hocus, make that call to Loudoun County Mental Health Services today!

Sure Hocus, go ahead and smoke some corn. Then you can go and spam Internet discussion boards and blogs 10 hours a day, 6(7?) days a week claiming that smoking corn gives the best high ever and pot is so yesterday! You just may have stumbled across just what you need to get achieve your dream of being rich and famous! Go for it HocoDude! ?;D

Sure Hocus, you could try to smoke wax. Seems a little crazy to me, but maybe not to a Bat$hit Crazy Internet troll like Rob "Hocus" Bennett. Whatever floats your boat!  ;D
