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.

Personally, I'm not happy to see TMF go down the tubes and I hope my post did not suggest that I am. I think the site has real positives and I'll miss it when it goes dark, as now seems very likely.

I'll admit to my share of Schadenfreude at seeing a number of other internet ventures go broke, particularly those that used to trumpet the gospel of the "new economy" with its "first mover's advantage" and everything zipping along in "internet time". TMF got caught up in some of that hype, but there was also some healthy skepticism about the valuations of tech companies and the long-term prospects of the speculative bubble formerly known as the internet economy. Too bad TMF is rotting away with all of the dot-compost.
