OK people, let's rename this the Sour Grapes Board and get it over with. You haven't heard of Jamie Gritton? Your loss. Read message 1 on this board. http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=15948376"We'd like to bestow The Feste Award on one member of the community that best exemplifies our mission of Learning Together:"And the mission please...The theme and mission statement of The Motley Fool Discussion Boards is very simple: "Learning Together" Everyone has a different reason for coming to the Fool's discussion boards. Some people want to learn more about their stocks and bounce ideas off of their fellow Fools. Others want to hear how folks went about leasing their last car or paying off their debt. Regardless of your reason, we are all here to learn. We believe that doing so together is a lot more fun and much more powerful than going it alone. Learning means both asking and answering questions. It means maintaining an open mind and embracing the intellectual curiosity we all have. It means that after each visit to The Motley Fool Discussion Boards, you walk away knowing more than you did beforehand. You feel your time was well spent, even if you read things that directly contradicted your own beliefs. In fact, it's those differing opinions that tend to make you think the most. Together means cooperating, respecting others, respecting their time, and acting in such a way to provide the greatest benefit to the greatest number. Some of the best posts each day in Fooldom come from people who spent an inordinate amount of time analyzing a balance sheet, a product, a company visit, or a conference call. These efforts, which often win our Post of the Day award, are usually born from someone else's desire to share their knowledge and get YOUR reaction to it. The reason they took the extra time was because they knew their information and hard work would be of benefit to hundreds or thousands of others, which made the sacrifice worth it. That's the epitome of "together." Jamie Gritton exemplifies that mission to a tee. And he's very humble about it too. So maybe if you never saw his contributions you should check them out, 'cause you don't know what you're missing. If this award was about wit and charm Jamie wouldn't get it. But the fact is - Nerds Rule. As for the rest of you, remember that what got you this far in life is your wit and charm. So what's with the sour grapes? Stick to your sense of humor and maybe next year there'll be an award for you too. ;-)Elan
