CAPS' Finest: The Clown List

Recs

0

May 07, 2010 – Comments (25)

Well when vet67towhatever dreamed up the idea of copying down everyone on RVA's blog and putting them in a list that he publicly denounced as "clowns" I doubt he had any idea exactly what the reaction would be. It was exceptionally positive--from the point of view of those tagged as clowns.

That said many of TMF's top members were on that list and I thought that we could turn it into a list of the finest CAPS members, of course not everyone is on here, and there are probably some people (myself included) that probably don't belong on the list quite yet but nevertheless we're on there. So, let us start with Vet's list and add to it. 

RVAspeculator  (97.85)

I second that. The list would be meaningless without fashiongoods2010. I'm just a member of the CAPS community. He is CAPS.

You know, whenever one of my friends comes up to me and asks "You got sixteen dollar Gucci?" I say "Hell yeah, let me  hook you up with my man fashiongoods2010 and he'll treat you proper."  Fg2k10 is both fashionable and welcomes everyone to buy. And you can input if necessary.

Thanks bullishbabo!  My heart sunk when I discovered that I didn't make the original clown list.

Personally, I don't think I'm good enough to qualify for the "clown list" as there some mighty respectable players who did make the list, but like an actor who didn't win the Oscar, I'm happy just to have been nominated.

I'd put anchak up there as well...been fond of him ever since his post regarding highly leveraged ETFs.

My addition to the clown list apparently was just because I voiced disapproval over the open rec policy.  Interesting.  Anyway, I don't contribute much to CAPs other than occasional comments...there are many more deserving CAPs members than myself.

I nominate russiangambit--most of my other favorites are already here, but he should definitely be considered.

He doesn't blog often, but will often pop into an ongoing discussion, lay down a brief--but effective--grazing fire of "I don't think that means what you think it means", and then disappear into the sunset.

all

don't add people already on the list. For instance I would have added:

lemoneater

bulllishbabo

TL

kdakota (yes, I do think you are worthy)

and many others, but they are already up there.

Vet

  I wasn't sure  about the recs dispute, so I went to Google's Home page and entered  Vet67to82.  Now, you have two choices "Search" and "I'm feeling Lucky"  I nevered tried "I'm feeling Lucky" so I did, and it takes me right to Vet's Cap's page here.  He's got thousands of links, I've only found 4 for me ---four.

Thanks, angus. I am not much of a writer, not enough patience -)). But I love to read other people blogs, they give me a lot of new ideas, which I then post in return.

========================

RVAspeculator was at the top of the clown list because it was his blog that started the "clown by virture of replying to a blog with an opinion list.   He's also on this "appended" comment as is  HooDaHeckNose. I'm wondering if the sub-list below was the three stooges sub-list, and I don't rank Clown. 

Regardless of whether I rank Clown or not, I'm VERY happy to be associated with all the clowns previously named and hundreds more that didn't make this list. It appears those who made the original list were just supporting the blogging community, reading, rec'ing as they saw fit, and replying.  That's what community and being a "Fool" is all about.

It appears that by the defintion:

Fool = Clown = A very small subset of the great CAPS community at a particular snapshot in time.

Fool on Fellow Clowns...even if I'm more of a Stooge!
