Is it just me?

I stumbled on TMF three years ago, and have been
educated, entertained and enriched. The book could be as
significant a part of anyones education as math! Should be
required curriculuum...

I'm an absolute advocate. I've bought the Motely Fool Investment Guide as X-mas gifts for several friends and family. And the sites are so very enriching, I feel like I ought to pay some
of the Fools I read on the boards. Of all the things I've
invested time and energy into, TMF has been the most
rewarding light years.

But the radio program. I'm even a little embarrased by the
glib, seemingly unrehearsed, and juvenile productions... The

These guys are practically family. I love what they've done,
and the movement they've generated.It's just one guy's

show some growth and maturity. To evolve with the rest of
us into happy but serious players.

( I really don't ever want to
see the gerbils message when the boards are down...)

C'mon guys. I know you can do much better.

Friendly and Hopefully Contructive Criticism.
