Looks like the end of the road is in sight.

Just a couple of thoughts on this:

What did TMF ever do to people that they'd be happy about their demise? I don't get it. I've enjoyed just about every moment here since January 1999 when I first registered and they taught me an enormous amount about how investing works.

I also don't understand why people complain about TMF and internet advertising in general (you know, banner ads and such). Surely, these businesses have a right to make a profit? I mean, we're reading these pages for many minutes, sometimes hours a day, for FREE. Is it wrong for them to want to get paid for providing so much for nothing?

I'm a regular reader of Salon.com. When they asked for subscribers several months ago, I gladly paid them the $30/year they requested. Why not? Why should I be able to read what writers write for free? Don't the writers deserve to get paid? Don't the hundreds of web designers deserve to get paid for working to get these pages up? I'm being informed and entertained all at the same time.

I guess somebody needs to explain it to me.
