Set forth below is the text of a comment that I put to another blog entry at this site:
I suspect Mike Piper will not ask you that.
I wish he would, Evidence.
By coming clean today, Mike could reduce the odds that he will receive a prison sentence and reduce the length of any prison sentence that he does receive. That’s a win/win/win/win.
I know Mike is worried. We had a long conversation about these matters at FinCon11 and Mike told me that “there’s nothing I would like more” than to see this matter resolved.
Why do you think Mike said that?
It’s because when Mike first started writing about investing, he had good intentions. He wanted to help people, not get caught up in an 11-year cover-up of errors in studies that people use to plan their retirements.
What went wrong?
The Buy-and-Hold Mafia intimidated Mike (and many, many others, to be sure) into keeping quiet about a matter that we all know millions of middle-class investors very, very, very much need to know about.
I’m here to help my friend Mike Piper (and all the others). Continuation of the cover-up is not helping my friend Mike Piper (and all the others) even a tiny bit.
If Mike works up the courage to talk to me, I will do what I can to take things in a positive and constructive and life-affirming direction. I can do no more and I can do no less.
My best wishes to you.
