Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to another blog entry at this site:
It seems there is a catch 22 here. I though the crash was supposed to bring awareness to the dangers of buy and hold and resulting all boards being opened up to you, so that you could educate everyone. However, it seems that the boards need to open up first, so that people can be educated on the evils of buy and hold. Seems to be a vicious circle in which one is dependent on the other.
Yes, we are trapped by a Catch 22.
We all want to bring an end to the economic crisis. To do that, we need to open every discussion board and blog on the internet to honest posting re the last 34 years of peer-reviewed research in this field. However, investors are in great emotional pain today because they bought into the smelly Buy-and-Hold garbage pushed so relentlessly by the Wall Street Con Men. To win the support of investors for our effort to open the internet to honest posting, we first need to educate them to the realities. But we need an open internet to educate them!
