CAPS' Finest: The Clown List 2.0

Recs

May 13, 2010 – Comments (14)

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, with the additions people made last week, here is the list:

RVAspeculator
Option1307
JGus
PDTBiotech
whereaminow
ChrisGraley
tonylogan1
coralbro
danielthebear
UltraLong
DaretothREdux
bullishbabo
outoffocus
lemoneater
TMFSinchiruna
YodaBuffett
ChannelDunlap
binve
goalie37
AndrewGreenBull
chk999
Tastylunch
HooDaHeckNose
galtline
blueberrygoo
blesto
kdakota630
DarkToast
Robuh
AirForceFool
Brickcityman
teacherman1
Deej
Checklist
sagitarius84
Dividends4Life
Strongman
MoneyMcBags
Enigmadude
Catoismymotor
JakilaTheHun
Anticitrade
Anchak
DWI and Kam (whoever they are)
Portfeuille
Tigerpack
TopSecret
TSIF
Russiangambit

And one who didn’t make the cut:
fashiongoods2010
Although he may qualify for something else: I have been interested in testing out just how secure our identities are online and I am very tempted to test it on him…

Dan

PS you can still add to this list but don’t add people who have quit (ie fb2, etc.)

That's too bad. I was really looking for some cheap air jordans too :(.

Actually uclayoda and cbwang deserve to be on that list (there are tons of others but those two spring right to mind) .

Wow - you like me!  You really like me!

 

BTW, I could be wrong, but I think TMFSinchiruna and Strongman are one in the same and "strongman" isn't actually his screen name (I think I read in a post somewhere that Sinchiruna means Strongman in some South American indigenous tribe language - but I could be wrong)

Daniel- 100oz is correct in #1 and #7. Sorry, I missed Sinch in the original list. He defined in the Thurgood Marshall "matching" post which was a large part of TMF fundraising for a very good cause. I think it was Amazonian from back when he was an anthropologist.
DWI for diversity and expanded perspective.
Kam for some of the funniest $hit I've ever seen here. Read this-
A Solution to Las Vegas Economical Problems
FREE MADOFF!!
Is this the America you want???!!!

Clowns = Fools = A great Community....

We all have our quirks. Put enough people in the same room and we all have our "cousin vets"  who are wired differently enough that they don't agree on some things or take something the "wrong way".   Since this community is about "investing" which means money, one of the touchiest subjects on the planet, it's a wonder we get along as good as we do!!!

The clown list was from the "Fools" who happened to log on and voice their opinion at that particular time and on that particular blog. Score had nothing to do with it, although many in our community with high scores hang out and share on the blog and great comments come from those with low scores as well.  (More Bear market Binve and Tasty and you'll climb back up!).    While the majority of the opinions differed from the writer of the "Clown Blog", it was just a small sample size of the Fool Community "at work".

I nominate for Clown any and ALL Fools who contribute regularly in the attempt to learn AND/OR share investing information.  Tossing in a personal note or non-investment note or sentiment helps to keep this place more like family and more intesting to some of us.   Finanacial information/opinions, new friends, cousin Vet, it's all good.  Take what resonates with you and leave behind something else to share.

PS. Have you seen how many clowns can fit in one small car?? I just hope everyone brushes their teeth and uses deoderant!!! :)
