I recall the many years of these Motley Fool boards & forums being a vibrant & bustling place for common individual investors to gather and trade ideas. Since the Fool has shifted to a Premium Subscription Service business model these boards have dried up. What gives? I've been an avid follower & devotee of the Motley Fool nearly since its inception. I've been in and out of some of the paid subscription services.

Is the Fool not making enough to market & emphasize the importance of its members continuing to talk to one another? Sure, we can write blog posts via our CAPS pages, and the discussions in the paid services are better than the general Boards....but please, either start marketing these Boards again or just remove them altogether. I hate wasting my time checking a Stock's board only to find it's been 4 months or longer since someone's even bothered to post.

Anyhow...regarding INFN, there's a huge disconnect right now between how the Fool's community members are valuing the company and how the Market is. What gives? One group is very, very wrong. Reaching $4.65 a share today, despite strong Q3 earnings and a very optimistic conference call, with an anticipated Tier 1 customer announcement sometime in the next month and a half...we shouldn't be seeing the stock continue to decline like this. What is it the Market thinks it knows that we don't????
