Normally your cynical attitude is a useful addition to a critical discussion, but in this case I feel you have reached the height of childish sophistry. You know security analysis better than I, but if I must genuflect in order to be enlightened by your vast intellect, then I shall choose to remain blissfully ignorant.

Actually I thank you (and another horse's ass on the AAPL board) for helping me understand how I really feel about how reasonable the $30 fee is ($15/year for the first 2) to participate in this community. It is a community, all opinions welcome, even yours. However, the idea that you are so wonderful that we can't do without you, or even a real man like Bruce Brown, and still not grow into a better community is absurd.

Were you as wonderful when the fool began as you are now? Did you not learn more than you taught? I guess it's easy for me to say this as I have certainly learned more than I have taught these past two years. Come the day, however, that I am even 1/10th the intellect you are, then I will surely be returning to the community some of that which I have received. This, after the yearly fees. It is not only my hope, but one of my investing goals that I might be able to help others one day who have only the means to purchase a hundred or so shares at time.

Go your own way, then, and save your $30. I sincerely wish you the best.
