Al's Insights – Mon 14 May, 2012
I received this from a listener yesterday and, I have to say, that I completely agree.
My original thoughts regarding religious issues as they pertain to investing had to do with the situaton in the Middle East. Unfortunately, the discussion got a little silly and had little room for mutual acceptance. Too bad! From now on all comments of this type will be edited from this otherwise great site.
Why have we decided to do this? Easy, because a lack of acceptance of others is a sign of ignorance and this family is comprised of too many bright people to allow that.
I have to tell you that I worry about your site due to religious fanatisim, I feel this will drive people away.
An idea might be to run a particular thread to deal with religous debat.and exclude it on investment threads.
Your site is VERY good and you moderate VERY well, and I see the potential to go beyond what might be thought today.
This move of including listeners was nothing short of brilliant in my opinion.
Anyway, I really do worry about loseing critical thinkers due to religous discussion.
Please protect your site and keep up the EXCELLENT work and thank you for all you do.
