Basically, apart from the people that frequent the Apple board, TMF is tedious and dull, and don't really provide anything for the users.

That's generalizing. I do think the the boards and editorials are of some use. The problem is more or less that most of the information is meant for people living in the States. A short time ago a friend asked me about buying a house. He wanted me to tell him <by ICQ> what he should look out for since he just hates financial stuff.

At any rate, I looked up the information about housing on the TMF and it is really great. It explains everything you have to know when buying a house including taxes, credit, house repairs etc. I linked my friend to this site and he was surely amused. It was the first time he had ever had to do with financing a home and the Fool gave details about everything he wanted to know or what he should check in.

Furthermore, I believe boards and editorials dealing with credit card debts etc. do their part too. Most people who live on a week-to-week, respectively month-to-month basis do get help or suggestions in planing their household budgets and paying off their debts.
