So as a guy new to the board this is deflating. If the vets are saying they are bailing out, does it make sense for a new guy to jump in? If so, then what?

Sounds like a herd mentality to me. If you want to succeed, think, evaluate, and decide for yourself. Use other people's comments as ideas. Don't blindly mimic their decisions.

The same applies to all the questions about which screens or screen families other people like. It's okay to ask, but never ever take someone's word and run with it. Always do your own testing and make your own decisions!

If you're too lazy to do that, buy an index fund.

A "vet" who hasn't bailed out.
