Until his recent reply and the questions it raised, it never occurred to me that
someone in the Gardner's position could use The-Motley-Fool's own business
experience to evaluate the quality and potential of this investment. Assuming he
has not deluded himself, the fact that he says "this business is good enough to
own in a MODEL portfolio" (a place that has bigger consequences than the
mere $2000 invested in the actual stock), I feel sufficiently calm about letting my
own investment ride.

trusting blindly is not a Foolish approach. It is a bit like saying Dave Thomas or Ray Kroc said to eat burgers and they should know about burgers so I'm gonna do it.

Heck, it is possible that this selection was to create cotroversy/net traffic and raise the value of the Fool to advertisers.

I really trust the Gardners and do not suspect anything like this to be the case, but lets not Wisely follow Tom's picks.

Tom, do you have a response as to why Yahoo will continue on as a powerhouse like compuserve and Prodigy. Or will it become a has been like AOL.
