Hello. I noticed that the articles in The Motley Fool Select reference the names and E-Mail addresses of the authors, but don't list the TMF Screen names of the authors. This makes it difficult since it's not very easy (sometimes impossible) to find the profile of the author. I'd like to be able to look up an author's profiles or other articles or messages posted by that author.

The articles frequently mention the author's holdings, such as this blurb from the April 2002 issue:

"At the time of publication, Zeke Ashton owned shares of Meridian."

Sometimes there are no holdings listed. For example, in the same issue I found the following:

"Guest analyst Guy Spier manages Aquamarine LLC, a New York City
based money management firm. He appreciates your feedback at"

At the very least it would be helpful if the author's screen name were listed. Somewhere it should also explain why Guy Spier's holdings are not listed.

By the way, the recent special issue "Our Favorite Five for the Year Ahead" didn't even mention the names of the authors, much less their holdings.
