Re: Poll: Have You Thought Of Leaving Forum Because Of Politics?

Group B wants the admins (government) to prohibit certain behaviors and take no responsibility for their choices. They want the responsibility to lie with a small group of people and ban (imprison) people that break the rules they want instituted. Show me one place anyone has suggested banning peop...

Re: I Think This Forum Should Stick To Investing

I miss the days when we could actually debate things here without being told by Tech that anyone that doesn't support Trump is a communist (as he alluded to in this very thread earlier this morning). Half the time I hear Trump talk he sounds like a communist! ;D Since it's only half the time.....le...

Re: Poll: Have You Thought Of Leaving Forum Because Of Politics?

To be fair, I agree the Bogleheads forum is ridiculous. I'm not suggesting that. These are not binary choices. It doesn't have to be one or the other. There is a WIDE gap in between the two. I find your statement to be apropos to the political discourse libertarians have with leftists. Whereby libe...

Re: Poll: Have You Thought Of Leaving Forum Because Of Politics?

Bogleheads forum has some good info but I stopped going there because of how ridiculous the moderation is. Reminds me of an HOA board who started an investing forum. “What is your guys end of year tax planning moves with Biden appearing to be the new president?” Thread locked. Political discussion ...

Re: I Think This Forum Should Stick To Investing

And if you don't split the politics off to a separate forum, and you want this to continue to be an investing forum only for the alt-right pro-Trumpers please at least have the courtesy to let us all know so we can quit wasting our time here and find somewhere else to go that isn't going to be host...

Re: Please meet Global Navigator and The Russell

Several years ago when I started investing in these models, I had a little difficulty getting over a mental hurdle that I had with following the directive of the model and going 100% into something if I felt the market was currently overvalued. Others may or may not have this or other hangups. I've...

Re: I Think This Forum Should Stick To Investing

1. I don't agree that the forum has been ruined. 2. What has caused the acrimony is that some of the members are attacking and insulting other members for supporting the President. 3. HB was talking about a relatively free society, not Cuba or Venezuela. If he were alive today, he would be all-in f...

Re: I Think This Forum Should Stick To Investing

Personally, I think this Politics section should stay. I barely follow US politics, and rarely look on this section. However I would imagine, perhaps naively, that if forum members are not interested they would not visit this area. Those that are so inclined can have a section as long as there is c...
