I don't do bond or stock funds (actually I did own one muni fund until late last year).

Anyway, you helped to remind me one of the reasons why....risk that is not always obvious.

I don't like researching funds. It's easy for me to understand the individual bonds I own once I've done my homework (which is done before I buy and re-visited occassionally).

It's not always easy to understand all the movings parts in a bond fund. And after you do your research, just how up to date is the posted information anyway?
