Hi Murph!

Sorry for the late response...was on vacation. :)

I checked Facebook and his account is still there but it's private, as it should be. Not being a major BMW poster, I'd doubt he'd even remember me, so I won't even try to friend him just to ask what type of investing he's doing now. lol

When I returned to the Fool, I checked the board's old posts but never could pinpoint when he left or why. I think you(?) at one point had said that there was a lot of contention on the board?? From what I can see that's what happens on all the boards I visit during big Down periods. People get very upset about losing money, esp if they haven't been through a Down before.

I left the Fool and BMW board because I took on a very time-consuming project and no longer had time to keep up with my stocks. Poor timing and unfortunately I took a bath on a number of stocks. But if I wasn't going to pay attention, it was the right thing to do and it saved me from an even bigger loss.

I'm curious about Jim, but it's not that big a deal. No further research necessary.
