The Fool is supposed to be about 'above board' investing and personal finance. It bothers me that they stamp obvious bad deals with the word "Fool" when only a fool would agree. Case in point:

I found this by following a "Great Yields for Fools - The Motley Fool's Short Term Savings Center".

Where is the comparison and education? Same thing with the credit card sellout manuever. Real Fools use credit cards as tools and make sure they get either cash back or miles for the use of the credit card.....

Does this bother anyone but me? Maybe its all so transparent that it should not bother me, but I think its an attempt to take advantage of paying subscribers that might not go the extra mile to check into TMF's claims. Makes you ask, are they taking cash for every stock in the Advisor reports?

Thanks for hearing out my rant.
