I'm curious as to the origin of this forum. From what I can gather it began around 2010. There was a splitting from another forum. RR.com? Which is now wealthmanagement forums? I'm surprised this forum doesn't have more activity. I'm sure it did on its prior incarnations and isn't "what it used to be." Am I close or way off?

 
You got it part right, but here's the whole story. The old RR forum had a LOT of big producers and good content. There were a series of debates where the old guard there embarrassed some younger advisors (active/passive, whole/term insurance, fees/commissions, VA living benefits). The pikers who lost those debates decided to leave RR so they would have a "safe space" where they weren't owned so consistently. I won't name names, but they have psychological issues ranging from PTSD/anger management, God complex, napoleon complex, etc...
 
This site picked up a lot of traffic when some of the big hitters from RR joined AH to continue the debates. Unfortunately, the moderators couldn't take the abuse and banned all dissenting posters. We'll never hear from some of the legends of the old forum again - BFP, Lawrence, BioFreeze, voltmoie, XLockEDJ, Still@Jones, Wanker, aeromaks.
 
The other thing that holds down membership is that most of the moderators are closeted homosexuals. You'll note the prevalence of questions/comments about anal sex. Because of this, female posters are run off pretty quickly so us guys can play grab ass in the locker room together.


Whoa. So where does the truth stop here? Either way I'm laughing

Is it really a god complex, if it's true?

As a whole though it seems all rr type forums are ghost towns. Is that simply because most of the quality producers are like...actually producing...and the people that do post are eventually out of the biz? Exceptions of course exist but I can see that being the case

I mean, there were almost 125 unique users that logged in today, and the place averages 1.5 new registrations per day as well.

Not bad for a forum that has been around for 6+ years (as in, the is continuous growth, not just because wenjust opened the doors), doesn't allow the public to view the content without registering, and has ZERO advertising (or any other source of revenue to support the place, besides donations).

I do appreciate this forum.
 
After I left the green giant, full shunning and excommunication occurred, even with my good pals I'd known for years (I know all regions aren't like that, but ours was).
 
Found the forum to get ideas and ask questions that I used to with the older guys.
 
Apart part from the occasional smart remark people will actually take your questions seriously and help out. I'm a bit vanilla compared to some of the characters on here (cept that one time on the college football thread, sorry guys), but I have found that I do relay the ideas that I get here into my everyday business.
 
And you can be anonymous too so that's a plus. I don't know why there isn't more forums like these in all professions.

Do you really think we're anonymous?  They can track IP, get your location, search you out, etc., right?

anonymous - ish
Don't think anyone would be interested in a plain ole Dudley-Do-Right like myself anyway. I'm quite boring.
What I meant was I can ask a question about a scenario and no one really knows whom I'm talking about. Not that we can't be "tracked" per se.

Nobody here is important enough for anyone to want to track them. Except maybe CLAB. After all, he presses 1600 pounds
