That is the thing, datasnooper, in terms of actual intellectual disagreements over stuff like 'does valuation affect SWRs' or 'is the REHP style study sufficient to ensure a safe retirement', there were practically none at this board. There is overwhelming agreement here that yes, valuation matters, and no, the REHP study isn't sufficient alone.
Somehow, though, we all ended up as 'defenders of the status quo' in hocus' mind, we all were engaged in a smear campaign, breaking rules, etc ... to prevent hocus' message being heard. What started as a natural alliance broke down under the weight of hocus' obsession with the REHP board and intercst, and hocus' inability to clearly and succinctly present and defend his ideas. That's the way I see it.
