All things considered, JG, perhaps you should take a look at these discussion boards:

http://socialize.morningstar.com/New...mId=F100000035

http://socialize.morningstar.com/New...mId=F100000001

They're topics you feel comfortable with, you'll meet people there who haven't heard your stories yet, and perhaps your ex-wife won't feel compelled to follow you. You could make a fresh start.

Best of all, I don't post at M* anymore.

They have made a misspelling because they meant 'through' but spelled 'threw'. To characterize it as a grammatical error implies that the error was in sentence structure. In fact, the error was in transcribing the language (in a proprely formulated sentence) correctly into written form.
While its debatable and your thesis may be correct, I'll bet $100,000 that our dear cunningham engaged in no such though process. He saw a junior poster make a small error and decided it created an excellent opportunity to be a jerk. His actions created no benefit for anyone nor did it improve the discussion. Which is pretty much par for the course.

Good luck Nords...he's a troll of a different kind. He wants attention and creation of self worth, which means he needs to stir the pot where he's known and will get the desired responses.

He didn't get that at raddr's board and he wont get that at morningstar. The former dismissed him because he has no actual investment knowledge coupled with a short list of interesting stories; the latter will dismiss him because there isn't a particular shortage of dimwitted political trolls.

He doesnt have anywhere else to go, and no actual life. So here we are.

Re: In need of Financial Expertise

I'm sorry that happened Moemg...it was quite uncalled for...but I think you've established the root cause.

agreed.

Although the subsequent banter to which we both contributed didn't add much either.

note to moemg: don't let any of this put you off. This is a great forum and there is much to be learned. My comment above was only meant in fun and not in any way to discourage your contribution.

Re: In need of Financial Expertise

If I did O.R. nursing for 39 years a little friendly banter isn't going to scare me and as for JG he reminds me of a bad blind date .

He reminds me of the stuff my beagles eat out of the gutter when I am inattentive on walks.
