I apologize in advance for taking up people’s time with this post/poll. I have a close friend who recently told me that I “have developed a very annoying and condescending habit of disagreeing or stating the opposite of whatever [he] says”. He also described his observed behavior of me as arrogant and jerk-like. I think he was referring only to discussions about investing. I am disturbed that he feels this way. While I know that I have strong opinions about investing that I am not shy about sharing, I thought that there is value in freely sharing my thoughts and opinions. I really view this more as a discussion which I find useful. When someone says or writes something that I disagree with or if someone makes statements or assertions that cannot lead to an actionable response then I will state so. Perhaps more bluntly that I should. If I have seemed annoying or condescending to others on this board, then I would like to know. Is my friend being overly sensitive or have I hurt people’s feelings on this board. The reason that I am posting this here is that my friend said that I have treated some people of Saul’s Board the same way that he fells that I have teated him. If I have offended anyone, I sincerely apologize. I would also appreciate it if you could send me a private message if you feel that I have offended you or treated you poorly.
This poll is anonymous so please feel free to answer honestly. If you have a specific feedback that you would like to share, positive or negative, please send me a private message so that Saul’s board does not get cluttered with a bunch of OT posts.
