It could be all just in my head, but did anyone else notice anything strange yesterday ?

IE  I went to the fool.com  only to see it not there ?

A  go daddy site was instead offering  to sell me the site ?

Is the fool dot com  in trouble ?  short on cash ?  did they forget a payment ?

Or is it just some Korean conspiracy to make me look bad ?

LMAO...

For a second  I considered buying fool.com, but I got distracted by the men carrying  the big nets.

 

And the rest is history.

Honestly I think - the way things are going - CAPS may very well be on this path to extinction.....

 

Unless - maybe there's a crash ad bear market - someone like FB comes back - and starts blogging about Spain and Italy markets!

I saw it too, and I was like "huh, so they finally shut down, surprised it took this long"

But for whatever reason, I am addicted to the CAPS game, even though I find the rest of the site useless

I was actually relieved that the burden of tracking stocks and writing pitches for CAPS may have been lifted. The value of the time spent on CAPS has greatly diminished as the administrators have allowed the site to deteriorate. On the other hand, I would have regretted the loss of years of a stock diary. Too bad there's no way to port all that stuff over to a better-maintained site.

Shocking....who could have predicted this....even after they got tens of millions in private equity investments to pump out what they are pumping out?

I tried to connect to fool.com myself several times, my browser could not find the site on Friday afternoon, Central European Time. I thought the site will be off for good, I am happy the fool is back.

Pardon my ignorance on the matter, but is The Motley Fool in trouble?  Has there been talk of them shutting down?  I've been away for awhile.

You should not be surprised if your investment accounts do the same thing...
