Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site:
There are no laws as to whom can post on privately run boards. The board owners decide who can and cannot participate. In fact, this is how you operate. You have deleted the vast majority of posts, which is just pure hypocrisy.
There are laws against financial fraud, Anonymous.
I am not engaging in financial fraud when I delete your insanely abusive posts. You ARE engaging in financial fraud when you seek unjustified board bannings as part of an effort to keep millions of middle-class investors from learning about the errors in the Buy-and-Hold retirement studies and the infamous 4-percent rule that followed from them.
You obviously have nothing to worry about from me. I have no power to send you to prison. If you go to prison, it’s going to be because a jury sent you there. I intend to testify honestly when called before your jury. But that’s as far as it goes.
Board owners can decide who can and who cannot participate at their boards SO LONG AS THEIR PURPOSE IS NOT TO ADVANCE A HUGE COVER-UP OF ACTS OF FINANCIAL FRAUD.
Do you think that if Harvey Weinstein said “it is legal to not put someone in a movie” that his jury would buy that story as a legitimate reason for him to threaten to take an actress out of a movie because she did not accede to his sexual demands? I don’t think that one is going to fly for the Weinstein monster. And I don’t think that that one is going to fly for the Lindauer monster or the Greaney monster or the Bogle monster either.
But we’ll see, you know? We will get to watch it all play out together in real time in the days following the next price crash.
Please mark me down as STRONGLY opposed to the smelly financial fraud garbage that we have all seen play out before our eyes over the past 15 years. Please mark me down as strongly OPPOSED to death threats and strongly OPPOSED to demands for unjustified board bannings and strongly OPPOSED to tens of thousands of acts of defamation and strongly OPPOSED to threats to get academic researchers fired from their jobs.
I love you man. But I love my freedom too. So nothing that goes to the wrong side of the felony line for this boy. I would be truly grateful if you would try to find somebody else.
