Gary North is an economist who runs the Specific Answers web site. Yesterday I sent him the following words by e-mail:
My name is Rob Bennett. My bio is here.
I’d be grateful if you would take a look at an article that I have written titled Academic Researcher Silenced by Threats to Get Him Fired From His Job After Reporting on Dangers of Buy-and-Hold Investing.
I think it’s a big deal. If it pulls you in, that would be super.
If not, I of course understand and I certainly wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors.
Gary sent me the following response:
I tried to navigate your site. I gave up. It is a combination of promotionals, long, rambling articles by you, and articles unrelated to the site (front page). The site is jumbled, at best. There is a reason why you are below 700,000 on Alexa,
The first two are dead: (“I write three weekly columns on these issues: (1) Investing: The New Rules at the Death by 1,000 Papercuts site; (2) Valuation-Informed Indexing, at the Value Walk site; and (3) Beyond Buy-and-Hold, at the Out of Your Rut site. You might want to review some of the columns (which address the many issues in bite-sized chunks of argument) if I have sparked a little interest but you remain skeptical.”)
You may be good. Your site is a disaster.
I sent Gary the following words in response:
Thanks for taking a look.
