Motley Fool - what happened?
I can't remember if I mentioned this here before.
There was a time when the Motley Fool books and web site were pretty darn interesting and informative.
These days, I don't know.
I did a little free registration thingy, and now I'm getting all sorts of ridiculous come-ons in my e-mail with outrageously confident proclamations about their "next stock pick!".
When did this happen to the Fool?
The reason I re-visited the site was that I have a hankering to invest in one or two single risky stocks with some big potential... just for fun... and possible profit. This, I guess, is the definition of gambling.
Anyway, something has happened to the Fool and it's not pretty!
