Correlation between when you become a member and your caps score.
No surprise that I became a caps member right before the recent market crash. It will be tough to reach the 90s with that handicap. Now I'm not proud for not seeing this coming but I do feel that Motley Fool should make when someone started rating stocks more prominent. I noticed that lots of the top caps scores right now are members that joined in after the crash, and their score just reflects the recent recovery. I urge you in picking your favorite fools for advice and guidance to take this into account. I member who started rating in 2007 and has a caps score of 80 is much more impressive than a guy who started in March 2009 with a caps score of 99.
Anyhow I hope fool.com responds to this post by making a fools start date more prominent.
Again I am in no way proud to have not predicted the recent market crash. I'm just impressed by fools who did.
