Where is Jerry Lee?

Postby abuss368 » Fri Dec 21, 2012 11:17 pm

Has anyone heard from forum poster Jerry Lee?

It has been a month since I have read any good DFA threads with the value and size dimensions?

Was he banned?

This thread is now in the Local Chapters and Bogleheads Community forum (Bogleheads).

Status is not disclosed to protect member privacy. (Don't imply anything here.) I believe you are referring to Jerry_lee.

Why would he be banned? He provided a lot of good information for many posters on this board.

He's not banned.

He recently sent me a PM asking about deactivation since he said he was to busy to post and didn't want PMs to be ignored. I replied with a few alternate options, but he never responded. I just checked and he hasn't picked up my PM.

I imagine he will be back when he has more time.

I think the OP doesn't really care about Jerry_Lee's whereabouts and this was a backhanded remark.

Hi mickens16,

You are incorrect. I enjoyed his many DFA posts and learned a lot. He and I sent many messages back and forth. I guess I will send a private message.

Best.

I personally miss Jerry Lee's posts. They were well thought out and he was passionate in his beliefs. Some I agreed with and some I didn't, but they always made me think.

I personally like folks who have viewpoints DIFFERENT then the usual bogleheads mantras. It helps me realize if I actually believe in something or am just drinking the kool aid.

Hope he comes back to post.

Good luck.

Me too.

Yup.

Whether you liked his viewpoint his intensity or his posting style [some did not] was one thing but how many epic threads was Jerry_Lee in the middle of in 2012? Quite a few. Sometimes those contentious threads delivered great info and analysis - several experts disagreeing and exhaustively defending their views was a goldmine.

I was just wondering this the other day. Count me in among those that miss his comments. I feel like I learned a lot reading the threads he was involved in.

Each day I would do a BH search under his name. Didn't want to miss anything. Anyway, he left over 900 posts for further study.
