For those who have noticed and for those who have not, I just wanted to let you know that I have stopped writing weekly columns for the TMF Workshop area. The decision to stop writing the weekly columns was a joint decision between Ann Coleman (TMFAnnC) and myself. It was decided based on the growing knowledge inside TMF of MI and at least in my opinion the great writing of TMFSynchroncity that excellent columns could be written without me doing the writing.

For those who don't remember, I started writing columns last year because I felt there was a void in the columns and that in particular there was a need for someone to write articles explaining the latest developments and how all the screens worked in away that new investors would understand. Over the past 15 months, I was able to meet my goal of explaining both how the screens work and how I look at the market in my columns. Over the last few months, I have found myself with less and less to say while interests outside of the MI world have made it harder and harder to keep up with a column. Because of this and the evolvement of MI, I felt and TMF agreed that it was a good time to stop my regular writing. We also both agreed that if from time to time I will write a special column if merited.

I want to thank the TMF and especially Ann Coleman for giving me the opportunity to write. I also want to thank Ann for her great editing. Believe me only Ann and I know how truely great her editing is and I really appreciate it.

Finally, I'm not going away. I currently plan on working within the MI world on special projects where I think I can enhance the learning experience for those doing MI investing. I am working with Ann now on one project that will hopefully be unveiled shortly.

Also a change in computers made me miss my last update to the Real Money Ports but that will still be appearing on the boards as will I. Finally at some point I would like to write something for Soapbox, however, outside interests keep postponing that project.

I want to end by thanking all the people who read my column, who supported me and who wrote e-mails and messages to the boards.

Thanks,
Moe
PS Sorry for the long, unedited message but I had been stalling long enough.

Just wanted to come out of lurk mode and say thanks. I've found your columns to be very helpful.

Sorry to hear that you will not be writing a regular column anymore.

When I first heard that the foolish four and workshop columns were to be combined my fears were that one of the writers would soon be missing and now its true.

I first became interested in the peg screen after reading your articles in July 1999 and as a result started a peg quarterly in Dec./99.

Looking forward to future articles from you and updates of your real money ports.

Hi Moe,

Let me extend my thanks to you for carrying this torch so long. After Robert Sheard left the Fool to pursue his own business ventures, there was very serious consideration given to closing up the Workshop. Ultimately, we decided that the Foolish Workshop was one of those special areas of the forum where the collective energy, intelligence, and enthusiasm of the community participants could carry the product.

You stepped up as one of those energetic, enthusiastic, and intelligent community members and continued the legacy of the Workshop...and made it stronger for your efforts.

Thanks so much, good luck, and I'll see you around these fields of Folly.

Best,

David

Don't go away! I think that you're one of the most coherent writers on the MI boards. It's a special talent,(even though you might use a spellchecker from time to time.) I'm a great admirer of Robert Sheard who has that talent also. It's too bad that nobody wants to talk about what he's doing now.
