Hi Cristine (& Ruth)
Yes the topic has been done to death but the debate will rage on while there are still those that consider themselves either pure TA or pure FA.  That is all a part of what makes life interesting.
I am an avid follower of the sharechat postings and often take considerable notice (ie put money up) based on what I read.  To those that have helped me to a win - THANKYOU - the information you have posted has been great.  To those that have had losses (as I have as well), keep learning from the previous decisions you have made - knowledge may act to some extent as a future "stop loss".
Keep up the good work (and don't stop posting)

Snoopy did a great fisking of the original posting. His questions were
polite and very reasonable. If one is going to post about "controversial"
topics one cannot complain when much of it is dissected. Implying the topic
at hand is too esoteric is often the last resort when one cannot logically
or factually rebut something.

People are very attached to their beliefs, much more attached than they
usually let on. When they are called on them they often depart, usually with
a few ad-hominems thrown in for good measure ;-)

IMO the lack of replies is nothing to do with not wanting to expand
horizons, but is because by and large the topic has been done to death and
no one cares anymore.


>>Hi Woody,

I have always held your posts in very high regard and your last post was no

It was excellent - pioneering - and very brave - proposing the exploration
of uncharted territory and encouraging everyone to broaden their horizons
(think outside the box).

In a brain-storming session, participants are encouraged to 'think outside
the box', take a non-judgemental perspective, and contribute both pros and
cons in a positive manner.

In this way, new ideas that may have great merit are not squashed before
they are considered in their entirety.

Your post reminded me of this, and as a life-long learner, I can say I was
truly excited by your post, your pioneering spirit, and the prospect of
exploring these possibilities through the ensuing exchanges.

Of course, to be effective - it helps to have more than one contribution so
I can totally understand your recent response.

Also, there is some risk associated with proposing anything new and there is
always some resistance (and rejection) of the unknown and of uncharted
(please forgive the pun) territory.

There are some very knowledgeable and experienced people who contribute to
this forum and I sincerely hope they re-weigh the possible benefits against
the personal risk of derision through exploring something new, offer to
contribute, and help you to reconsider, BUT; even if that doesn't happen, I
still hold hope you will reconsider and stay - please?
