The quote you attribute to me is atually from BigShoes at the beginning of this thread.

As to the Fool"s credibility, here's what I wrote in post #5391:

"The title of the thread is, IMHO, a little inflamatory. No offense, BigShoes. I view the Fool as having VAST CREDIBILITY as one of the few sources of objective and original thought on investing and personal finance."

I agree with you 100%.

As for making your own decisions based on your own research, here's something that I wrote in June on the Iomega board:

"...I and many others, I'm sure, have taken the lesson of the Fool to heart. We rely on our own research, gut feelings, and risk tolerance then make our own investment decisions. Thus we take responsibility for our own financial futures."

Again, I agree with you 100%.

What troubled me was that we were told by Verve that we were deliberately misled. I shook my head in disbelief and called upon Verve and Otter to respond to this.

Otter has indicated on the Nokia board that it was a mistake, pure and simple. Thank goodness. He's totally off the hook now as far as I'm concerned.

In light of Otter's response I assume that Verve simply fumbled the retraction/correction. I would, however, like to read his response.

Innocent until proven guilty.
