Aren't those two things synonymous? Hocus and bad ideas?Guess I assumed everyone else still shuddered at the memory of those endless long threads on REHP.Seems I came late to that party. By the time I discovered Hocus he was gone and all that was left was interminable threads. It made for some very interesting reading, I quickly learned to go make some popcorn whenever I discovered a new thread.Then there were the "Money-Merge Account" threads, some going over 2000+ comments. And nowadays there are the Dividend Growth Investing threads on Seeking Alpha, pushing toward 1000 comments.Great fun, great fun. Bad ideas are everywhere.My nightmare is that the Dunning–Kruger effect has crept into my brain, and _I'm_ the one spouting absolute nonsense. Which brings up a meta-question: If you are aware of the Dunning–Kruger effect, are you largely inoculated to it?
