Don't Believe The Motley Fool

Recs

43

March 09, 2011 – Comments (26)

I know a lot of you believe the Motley Fool, but I'm here to PROVE to you that they can not be trusted.  I was just clicking around the site when I saw a link to "Most Recommended Bloggers".  At first the link seems benign enough, but upon pondering it further I realized it was nothing but a waste of time.  Why, because someone who posts 10,000 blogs is going to be at the top of the list.

Below I've created a REAL list, based on AVERAGE Rec's Per Post.  It also requires more than 25 posts.

Here are the TRUE top 25 Bloggers:

What ever happened to that guy?  I think he quit  his own site too.

Anyway, he's probably still short silver and Goldman sachs!

They were never to be trusted in the first place.  

This sight really is about getting peoples emails to get them to subscribe,

they could really care less about who has how many recs or who is the top scorer as its irrelevant.

  only worried about boosting the number of players and getting some of their money.

What the heck is trolling ? has anyone ever seen a troll ?

Besides if you take a look at the top blogger lately the only persons recommending him is himself and no one even bothers to comment on the junk he posts.

He has made himself irrelevant over 2 years ago, he just doesn't realize it yet.

Sort of like dinner for schmucks.

Floridabuilder should be up there, but suppose he does not have 25 posts since he had to have them erased.

 TMFDeej is one that I look for, but it appears he is not in the top 25.

Yeah, I was looking for TMFDeej as well.

Where am I on the list?  Will you be doing both of my account separately, or combined?

wcwhiner appears to be in the bottom 25 because the CAPS database messed up and deleted all the recs on his old posts.  He's a good blogger.

Vet is number 1 because he figured out how to rec his own post hundreds of times, right?

So don't believe TMF, but also don't believe this ranking.

Just goes to prove you can always impeach the official statistics and make up your own ;)

Why don't you propose they add your statistic to the list? My experience is that they listen to their users. And this one is not complicated to calculate.

You got me interested - where do I fall on the list?

I think the Top25 is a great reflection of the bloggers I typically look for.

Could you imagine? A class of 25 kindergarten kids all recommending each others posts and us following along because if they all agree with each other than they must be trustworthy and smart.

Best wishes,

Actually, the KDakotaFund account is the 12.65 that was reported as KDakota630.

KDakota630 is only 10.65.

Not that any of this really matters, but it is kind of interesting.
