The Motley Fool has become a terrible site.

A long time ago The Motley Fool was a great resource that was transparent and provided good advice. Now it's just like all the pump and dumps sending out endless crap spam.

Think about it.

Caps  really hasn't  changed they've always  been  one to send out   a  lot  of  stuff,  sometimes too much, even  when they have  you  unable  to access  they would shamelessly send  offers,  I  was  tempted once,  but  the bad taste left in my mouth from  uneven justice  and  purposeful  targeting of  certain individuals  has  tempered such actions.

The  sight has tried to improve,  the thing is,  censorship  and  selective  enforcement  has  driven  people away.

Well thats my 3  cents and I'll stick with it.

Just look at how long it took them to correct  the tvix  reverse stock split.

On a  brighter note, they always  have  the opportunity to earn  business,  thing is  once you  screw someone over, it doesn't  play well.

Case in Point...

Hypno toad...

and  a  few others  i dare not mention.

Transparency  and  good advice  along with  kindness  is  always appreciated,  that  and  realizing  that  people  can have a bad day or  need  an  outlet  without  persecution or  selective bias.

Maybe I don't know  what i'm talking about, but once this site  was popping,  now  it's  like  a  zombie  apocolapse  has  run amock  and  only  a  few stragglers linger,  while  afraid  to  expose  themselves  for fear of  being  zombiefied.

I agree that the majority of the site is full of people who seem too intellectually lazy to determine how fairly valued a company currently is. Seeing a bunch of lemmings pretend to call themselves investors is truly a disgusting site. Almost all of the pitches on CAPS are terribly written or based off of nothing, saying that its a company is a good buy because it is "oversold" or because somebody else on the site gave it a thumbs up. I do believe there is still a lot of value in the site if you know where to look. I am relatively new to the community so I don't know about the good ole days, but it seems like at the present moment most of the people on this site don't know squat about what true investing actually is.
