I also chose 50% entertaining / 50% educational. However, I do enjoy learning from the educational threads since I am not a financial expert. I have learned a lot since I joined two years ago. Thank you all.

Does that mean this thread is purely for entertainment?

Or is it thought provoking and serious to discuss thread content?

How do I mark this on my scorecard?
