Hi,

I've been a member of the Motley Fool for quite a while, but haven't been too active until recently.

I really like the forum, the humor, and the sensible (Foolish) investment instruction and advice.

I recently joined MF GreenLight in hopes of, among other things, getting help from a financial advisor I trust (I trust the Motley Fool).

After joining, I found that that service was quitely discontinued. I can find no information on the Motley Fool about why.

It is still referenced as a service here:

http://www.fool.com/school/13steps/13steps02.htm?ref=SchAg

It would be great to hear from Tom and/or David about what happened, if they can talk about it. If not, a quick note that the Professional Advisor service has been discontinued, stating that you can't talk about it would be ok.

Those with GreenLight access could view my post about it here:

Barbara (TMF Venus) has asked the Editorial Department to correct the page(s) that reference the service.

Will the service ever come back?

Sincerely,

Ted

The service was originally called TMF Money Advisor. It was not profitable for TMF (my guess is the contract required a certain minimum number of signups, which they didn't meet), so they replaced it with GreenLight. All references on the website to Money Advisor got changed to Greenlight, even when it didn't make sense. The Fool doesn't talk about discontinued services.

The service will probably not ever come back, and it doesn't seem to be available anywhere else (unless you work for Home Depot or IBM).

Thanks for the info JRR.

Your explanation makes sense, some of the statements referring to Green Light do not. I hope they change those.
