History may (or may not) repeat but I bought into this fund in September of 2009, with the same concerns expressed elsewhere on this thread and so far I'm quite happy with the 3.7% overall return per year (per Quicken). I'm not reinvesting dividends since I'm already ER'd and using the dividends (and CG) as part of my cash flow.

It did give me pause, Vanguard isn't much focused on marketing are they.
