For months I have relied on The Motley Fool to provide me with up-to-date, insightful investment advice, and now they tell me they're just going to leave me hangin'? This is outrageous! I totally disagree with their premise, and who would want to play a serious strategy board game with an avowed rule breaker? (On the other hand, I did find this article on spatulas very informative and well-written.)

Give me a break! In light of this impertinence, I quit CAPS! I will be removing my player profile, effective Friday. Look to this space no more for breathtaking investing insights and heartworming stories about cuddly puppies!

FB,

Are they closing CAPS? Rulebreaker? I am not sure I understand?

The Fool goes crazy on April Fool's Day every year.  Don't believe any article published today. :)

I was just thinking that we do have people from nations outside the USA posting here, and people who don't have English as a native language.  I wonder how many other cultures have April Fools Day.

Some of the other hoaxes today like Virgle (the Virgin Airlines & Google effort to get to Mars),  or the new Blackberry that uses Windows, look awfully official.  Unlike the Fool's announcement which goes out of its way to wink at the user.

April Fools Day, is it? I guess I'll try to reinstate my CAPS account. How embarrassing.
