I think their story is wonderful, and I'm disappointed that you have let your bias against those who make commissions in the financial world get in the way of noting that.

You must be referring to intercst pontificating again. Or maybe Rayvt.

What’s interesting is that the more attention and accolades these know-it-alls receive, the more dogmatic they become. My suspicion is that financial dogma arises out of a sense of pride, something we can all admittedly struggle with as we chase after the same dwindling dollar floating around out there. We start out confident in our ability to help others with their money (a good and noble motive indeed), but over time, instead of realizing that there are many ways to skin a cat (various worthwhile strategies that fit different situations and financial personalities), we find ourselves launching into an all-out assault on anyone who does not agree with our way of doing things.
