In answer to JPV’s question to us.We visit this site, because we find it to be one of the best ones around. It is more open and tolerant than most. Thats the whole point with J.T.R. From him you mostly get the other side of the story. He may go way overboard, but he sure puts it in a way that may make you think, whether you believe him, or like him or not! Thats what we think this site also advocates, a well informmed visitor/investor that is open to all sides and able to think and make their own decisions, if they are given all the facts, both good and bad. We hadn’t noticed JTR ratings on this site until you mentioned it. Actually, for him, its not a bad rating- neutral! Again, mostly the negative comments, are more in the way he says them. We also looked for the first time at his “experiences of two years of Guru ratings” portion of his site. It gives some insight into why he rates and talks like he does. He obviously doesn’t think most people are too smart! In fact he uses the word stupid. We tend to give people and this site, more credit than that. But he also gives some good analysis of how and why people do things. The question for us is not whether we believe him,(on some things we find him to be correct and not on others) but like it or not, he is one place you will find information on Gurus, like no other. Just like anything else, you should and need to filter it with other information your get and come to your own conclusion. Again, we visit this site because we find it to be one where you can discuss both side of any queston or Guru. That the Beauty of it! Don’t change that or you lose the quality that makes you stand out above the rest! Fletch’s comment is also very appropriate. Please don’t lose your objectivity.
