Dear Richard,1. We have no idea how accurate that information would be, and cannot enforce accuracy outside of staff.That's a given about every aspect of the profile. Mr. X is not, in fact my real name. Caveat emptor is a pretty common policy with regard to information presented in virtual communities, with good reason.2. "Favorite Stocks" already serves that purpose, at least tacitly.Yes, and I'm using it as such, but it's not the same. I may own stocks that aren't my favorite, and vice versa. Also, it doesn't address the solidarity issue. We really are a community, and it would be a nice gesture for those of us not endowed with TMF monikers to be able to stand alongside our friends.3. The field for "Stocks I Own" was designed into the system with the expectation that the level of traffic to it would be relatively low. Adding it to everyone's profile would require re-writing a lot of code and degrade server performance.The technical argument is perhaps the weakest. If it's a good idea, and a desired feature, that's why there are people in the Tech Dome. If not, not.Yours truly,Mr. X...we stand together...
