I Want To Be Your Board General!

The recent post by MacDuff in which he argues that limits on abusive posting are needed for reasoned on-topic discussion to be possible is the voice of the majority of our community. I have been around since the beginning (the Motley Fool board was formed in May 1999, and I began posting there that ...

Any other place to resume this work ? I put forward a proposal at the Town Center board that ES transfer rights to the material at this board (as well as SWR posts on the FIRE board) to JWR1945 or me. If he were to go along with that, we could go on as we are now (and we have been building up a hea...

Petey:

Please send me an e-mail (Rob@PassionSaving.com) giving me an up-to-date e-mail address. I can send you JWR1945's e-mail address.

I have no desire to start a website. I know of no other website where I would be comfortable posting my research. You will always have a standing invitation to write articles on the Data-Based SWR Tool for posting at PassionSaving.com, JWR1945. I'm probably going to start out with a focus on the sa...

I believe that you have posted under false pretenses. I believe that you are NOT interested in learning from my research. Rather, you merely sought an opportunity to run a hatchet job. This one has even me wondering just a little if maybe he is just old bipolar hocus posting under a different name....

I am sure that everything will work out and the result will be much better than either of us can imagine. The historical data supports this viewpoint. I am joking in a way and not joking in a way. The Data-Based SWR Tool is a new idea. It has been true throughout history that many new ideas have be...

I've deleted a post by BeachBumz. It was a nonsense gibberish defense of the intercst SWR claims.

I've added the text of the deleted post to the "Dead Post Files" thread. Here's a link:

I've deleted a post put forward by BeachBumz. It was a nonsense gibberish defense of the intercst SWR claims. The text of the deleted post is set forth below.

A Break In The Action

I will check the board next Monday. If there are some sensible people who have put forward some sensible words, I will work with them to try to steer this in a positive direction. If there is just more nonsense gibberish, we will continue to travel down the path where nonsense gibberish takes us.

then there is still an additional hurdle of assessing Bernstein's credibility on the issue. I can make a good argument that he was off base, which is admittedly pretty rare for him It is indeed your right to do just that. That's what the boards are for, to faciliate a hearing of both sides. You do ...

That's a damning indictment. Show me. Give me a url. There are thousands of links that could be put forward to demonstrate how foul and dishonest and abusive a poster intercst is. There is no end to them. I'll provide you a link to my "For TH" post. That one provides links to the testimony of three...

There can be no single post to support the "ad nauseum" claim. I have responded to the questions that have been put to me. That is what a poster is supposed to do. The questions have been put forward in ad nauseum fashion, I will give you that one. That's not my doing. You might want to consider ho...

From what I can see - and my sight isn't perfect because I don't know the entire history - you were banned for reasons other than questioning the methodology. I was banned by four site administrators: (1) TMFBogey at Motley Fool; (2) ES here; (3) raddr at raddr-pages.com; and (4) Dory 36 at the Ear...

Bernstein could be as wrong as you think intercst is. He could be. That's fair to say. But if posters at our boards are free to post about the intercst views on SWRs, then people should be able to post about the Bernstein views too. Bernstein is every bit the authority that intercst is. The questio...

I am always polite Hocus Polite doesn't pay the bills when an early retiree's plan goes bust, Ben. You need to move beyond polite.

To be fair, you are also accused of twisting facts and logic to further your vendetta and of doing so ad nauseum. No one who has said such a thing has ever pointed to a post with my name on it as offering support for the claim. No one ever will. There is no post in the archives offering any support...

Being right is less important to you than getting even. Getting even means nothing to me. My quest is to be able to post honestly on the various Retire Early/FIRE/Passion Saving boards, and for others who want to discuss SWRs with me to be able to post honestly as well. I will suggest yet again tha...

Suppose JWR1945 and I disagree in the coming weeks. On what basis can you possibly decide who is right and who is wrong? I can form tentative judgments based on how people respond to questions and the tone they use and things of that sort. I do not possess the skill set to say definitely who is rig...

Vendetta for the sake of vendetta cannot rehabilitate you or damn intercst. I don't need any rehabiliatation. I am the one who first pointed out that he got the number wrong, remember? And there is no vendetta. I just want to be known as the anti-intercst so that no one gets the mistaken impression...

follow the evidence and discussion wherever it leads, and hope that the result is sufficient to expose intercst's result as at best lame. We already know that Bernstein says that intercst got the number wrong by two full percentage points. What chance is there at this point that we are going to lea...
