By the way, is there a forum etiquette for making multiple replies like this? Should I do separate posts so they are marked properly as replies, or bunch them together like this so I don't flood the forum?

First the caveat. Although there's "TMF" at the beginning of my name, I'm not speaking in any official capacity. My official duties are listed in my profile, which you can access by clicking on my name up above. ­­Everything I post here is just Phil's personal opinion/observation.

I don't recall ever seeing an answer to your question. One thing I really like about your responses, which I've not seen by anyone else on the Fool's boards, is the use of the "@" convention in your responses. It makes it clear immediately who you're addressing. This is helpful to those of us who are eavesdropping on your conversation.

You've stated the pro of putting responses to multiple posts in one. The con is that the person you're responding to may miss it if (s)he is working from the "responses to your posts" link.

Speaking of responses, if you responded to my suggestion of a way around the Roth IRA contribution income limit I missed it. I'm bringing it up only because it may have gotten lost in the excellent rent/own discussion that's been going on. If you'd like to pursue it, either here or on the Tax Strategies board just let me know.
