I'm a long time lurker, first time poster... I'm finally posting because of the recent influx of Jack Hershey posts. Having been around the newsgroup/messageboards block a few times myself, I've seen Jack's posts sprout like mushrooms in every forum. After following numerous threads concerning his ideas, I can safely say that not one person has been able to distill his ideas in a concise fashion. Even those who work hard to follow his directions have not seen reality mesh with Jack's idealized theories. Please check this yourself through googling Jack Hershey's newsgroup posts. At first I buckled down and meticulously worked through his messages and ideas myself, but I eventually stopped trying when Jack avoided answering some very concrete questions by either ignoring the inquiries or beating around the bush. Some of these questions concerned his trading ideas, while others pertained to the stories of "remarkable" life accomplishments he sprinkles around his messages. For example, here is a *concrete* question for Jack: "You said you have published over 30 books (and have written papers for various US Presidents). Please tell us which books you have written as I'd love to check them out." If he answers this with real information, then I will humbly apologize. However, given the trend, I am quite certain he will simply ignore this request for clarity. Thanks for your time.
