Subject: 2 July column


I dearly wished today's reporting on The Motley Fool had been
less sensationalist and more journalistic. Having been a loyal
reader of both the WSJ and Motley Fool, I can say quite confidently
that you have no idea what it is you've chosen to write about today.

To begin, you've completely missed Messr.'s Gardners repeated
encouragement to -all- that their strategIES (plural emphasis)
are not to be mimic'd. You espouse Dr. Corigliano in your opening
quote as a man duped by bad advice when the truth is he made
his own choices yet lays blame on Motley Fool. He has only
himself to blame for not listening to start with and making choices
not grounded in his own best understanding.

(*)(mis)Quoting a speaker's forum in comparison to a stock forum
illustrates quite vividly your lack of understanding of the community
at The Motley Fool. There is no dating service on the He/She forum.
CISCO owners kid around too on their forum. Tell me truthfully, did
your research on the site and any of its participants last longer than
a few hours? Did you actually read any of the philosophies that have
gathered these individual investors together?

Educate, amuse, enrich: ring any bells?

I sincerely hope the subject of your next column will be paid more
attention than The Motley Fool seems to have been given. I for one
will be reading your words a little more cautiously.
