I'm a new subscriber to The Motley Fool. I was won over by the enterprise because of the Motley brothers sincere interest in helping investors and at the same time making an honest profit from sharing their knowledge and information. But I question the new venture, Motly Fool One. The underlying message from the advertising is that if investors put a great deal of money into that membership then they'll get more of Motley. But why put all that money into Motley Fool One when we can use our heads, do the research, explore and more? And of course study The Motley Fool?

It just seems like this new enterprise is one more way to take money from people, likely middle to upper income, who are trusting of the Gardners and indeed are already investing a healthy share of their sums in the stock market. It's like putting all your chips on one bet. In fact, it sounds like Tom is doing that very thing and expecting us to do the same.

My gut feeling is that there is more risk--and not calculated at that--than any win from joining.

Like I say, I'm really won over by The Motley Fool. I just hope the brothers don't cut down on the information and withold information only to provide it to those who spend the approx. $6,000 to participate in Motley Fool One.
