I don't post much, but am curious: Why is the Rubber Meets the Road thread with Hershey in it constantly having anything critical of his methods removed? Is this the mod, Oracle that does this? I ask because it's totally inconsistant with the the way the rest of this place is run where anything except outright spam/advertizing is tolerated. By the way, Oracle might want to re-read (or perhaps read in the first place) Taleb's Fooled by Randomness. Taleb does not say the markets are random, only that people underestimate the degree to which events - including markets - have a random component to them that may help account for degrees of relative success or failure.
