I've never understood why guys with status/money do anything so risky. Aside from the ethical implications, which are clear, isn't it easy nowadays with the tinder's and online stuff to hook up easily? Last time I dated, a decade ago, it was easy, too easy, and I'm not making any claims on looks or skills here. Or is it about something else? IDK.

Edit: Want to add that I'm not a believer in the "believe her" aka lack of due process movement. I don't claim to know what happened. Myself, and two good friends have had issues in the past. In Eric's case, she may have looked 20 years old, IDK.

When I was 27, I had a great small company with about 20 employees. I had a half dozen female secretaries that all worked in the same room. My book keeper/payroll employee, a female, let me know one day that due to the lack of communication I had with the secretaries they weren't sure about their status with me. She asked me to simply stop by and ask them how they are doing intermittently.

The next day I said hello to one on my way by and somehow we started talking about tv shows. I brought up Big Love, which we pretty new IIRC, and said jokingly something about how I *might* be able to handle two wives. I was married at the time. The conversation was very brief. I can honestly say I had -zero attraction to this woman.

A couple weeks later, my book keeper LMK that all the other secretaries didn't like the "big love" secretary and she wasn't performing well. I said well go ahead and fire her... that was her responsibility anyway. She was fired.

A month or so later I get a call from the state saying that the "big love" girl was claiming I sexually harassed her and that the company had discriminated against her because she was mentally handicapped. It was the first that anyone at the company had heard about some purported handicap and it was never disclosed to us. Someone from the state came and interviewed all the other females and apparently they didn't didn't have anything bad to say about me and the case was closed.

 I'm simply writing this because we really don't know what happened and the are often incentives/disincentives working in the background, hidden.

For those who care, Eric disclosed his legal issues and the situation he is in prior to the meetup. I wasn’t aware of it, since don’t follow local news all that much. The story is what it is and I am not inclined to judge. What I do know is that the three of us had a great time talking investing, politics (a bit), stocks , doing a podcast (my first one) and play a board game. I wouldn’t hesitate to do another meetup again.

Well whatever the story is, it was good hearing you speak and learning how to correctly pronounce your screen name.  :)

Well, Spekulatius,

to me, you're not [in any way] related to this.

In short, it's about double indentity here on CoBF.

Please explain yourself, Og, here.

Explain what?  That he's using a pseudonym on an anonymous message board?

So, is this a meeting place or a community?
Transactional or relational?
Anonymity is a double-edged sword which comes with its own sense of responsibility.
For me, an investment is a partnership and maybe that's too personal.

For me, this community is for two things, entertainment, and idea generation/buffering.

So in regards to the later, my only concern is making MU-KNEE..... let the truth and the info available take me to where I need to be to make it.

I open and welcome any and all ideas and info, it is on me to decipher it and either put it to use or discard it. Lets not worry about judging peoples character on an anonymous Internet forum/community. In a twisted sense, the most honest or transparent folks will be the ones getting assassinated while the opaque(not with standing John Hjorth who I am guessing really is John Hjorth) play judge and jury. Eric used his real name, google him, judge him, execute him. Anonymous poster never gets ridiculed.... If Eric likes pursuing teenagers, thats his prerogative. Doesn't mean he can't provide value to an investing community... Also doesn't mean he doesn't have a side to the story. Frankly I could care less.

Yes, I knew about it in advance as well and there is quite a bit more to the story than that article lets on. But it was a good time and I wouldn't hesitate to meetup with you or Eric again.

As far as John’s objection to the name change, that puzzles me.  I've been on this board since it was on the orher platform way back when. That was the pre-facebook days when almost no one used their real names online. That is why my username isn't my teal name. I don't see the issue with changing usernames or going anonymous.
