I was not talking about how the market was going to perform in a thirteen year period like you imply; I was talking about how the market was likely to perform in the next six to twelve months. In that context, I was right as you pointed out.

So you don't consider that you were inaccurate when you said this about the longer term (of which the past 13 years qualify and the percentage gains shown in prior posts point out)...

"To think that somehow the current environment is going to pan out differently in the long run is the height of foolishness. This board should be kept at the Fool indefinitely to remind us to stick to basic investing principles."

Point being, longer term investing is exactly one of the stalwarts of successful investing - especially when we are talking about technology adoption life cycles and circling the investment wagons around the winners within their respective spaces.

Have you even read any of Moore's books? Serious question.
