Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site:
I don’t see the threads calling Taylor and Mel liars. Can you provide a link?
I am not going to find the link for you, Anonymous. I mentioned it at the time either in a blog post or on a podcast, possibly both.
If you want to find it, you’ll find it. Or you could ask Larimore and Lindauer. They would tell you in private.
If the Bogleheads Forum permitted honest posting, you could just ask there. But of course that is out for obvious reasons. But you can ask privately and find out what you need to know (as if you didn’t know already!).
Anyway, it will all come out in the court proceedings and in the many news articles we will see re these matters once legal actions (both civil and criminal) are filed against you. I WILL go to the trouble to track down the link for the benefit of the reporters writing those articles and for the benefit of the people serving on the juries in those cases.
I naturally wish you the best of luck with it (while also wishing the millions of middle-class investors whose lives are in the process of being destroyed the best of luck with it as well).
Also, I have plans to prepare an article for posting sometime in 2017 that will offer a listing of the 101 most important acts of financial fraud. That article will provide the link to the Bogleheads Forum thread that you are seeking. In the event that the thread has been doctored (Surprise! Surprise!), I have a copy of the complete thread in my files, so I will be able to provide the words that appeared before the thread was doctored. And the lawyers will be able to recapture the original thread when the various trials are held. The members of your jury will of course be free to reach the obvious conclusions re what doctoring of the thread signifies re the state of mind of those who performed the doctoring.
