Is it only me that wonders why 20-something dudes are either being pulled in to write about stuff they have zero knowledge about or choosing to do so hoping for some reward- or maybe getting one I'm unaware of.

Seems to me this stuff is nothing but another page view- another advertiser number. This particular guy will write anything and often his stuff is beyond pathetic.


So we have a 20-something kid out of college who seems to be going down a path many of us traveled and he seems to be latching onto Buffett and Munger's teachings on investments and life. And, maybe, he is trying to get some exposure for himself on Seeking Alpha for professional reasons.

And for that, he is called pathetic?

I only follow 20 authors on Seeking Alpha and this guy happens to be one of them. I am not a fan of Seeking Alpha's way of doing business but I'm not going to fault some kid who uses that platform to write about Buffett and Munger.

It's revealing that so many people here recommend a mean spirited nasty post like that. Oh, and I remember the old dealraker from many years ago and he was a cranky and wisecracking guy but not a mean spirited issuer of one liners. In short, I believe "Charliedealraker" is an imposter.
