Honestly, I give Larry a lot of credit for staying around as long as he has. I wouldn't have been as patient!

Thank you Larry for all you've contributed. I've learned a lot from you!

A sad day for the forum but just think of the 100,000s that have benefited from his advice. That is priceless. I have always followed the links to his columns, read them and thought "what good advice, that sounds exactly right, this is one of those really smart and insightful guys". I hope to be able to continue to experience that for years to come. Thanks for the road directions to Dublin, Larry!

Very, very sorry to hear this. I credit Larry, his books and on-line postings, with shaping my knowledge on investing and my portfolio. I've read many of this books and find them excellent.

Good luck Larry. The best of luck in retirement!

This is a significant loss for the forum. Fortunately, there are so many posts left behind that we can reread them from time to time. That kind of knowledge is timeless. And there are the books as well. He'll be missed very much.

Mr. Swedroe has been a generous and helpful poster. Thank you sir...know that sharing your financial knowledge and literacy makes a huge difference to people like me - and that translates to a better ability to take care of my family and others I can help.

Dismayed that some spoil this great opportunity via negative posts. You can disagree with ideas, but a personal attack just hurts all of us who are trying to learn.

Larry,

Thanks for the great articles you have written. I have learned a large part of my investing from your articles and 2 books; "The Quest for Alpha" and "The Successful Investor Today".

I understand your reasons for not posting and would state you have been more patient than most.

Good luck in your retirement,

Because I don't come here everyday or even every month, I'm one of the posters that would ask a question from time to time that was probably addressed by Larry a thousand times. I was always surprised and delighted when he would respond anyway. Larry is one of the experts I have trusted the most through the years and I have adopted many of his concepts into my investment plan. One thing he drummed into me that has helped me "stay the course" is to never confuse outcome with strategy.

I agree with all the warm and appreciative responses here. I've learned so much from this forum, and from you in particular, enjoyed your book as well. Sorry to see you go but understand. Enjoy your upcoming retirement. In just 4 months of retirement, my stress level is down 100%, feeling great, enjoying life more fully. I wish you the same! Thanks again.

I'll very much miss reading Larry's informative postings on this website. I have been following Larry's comments since at least 1998 and owe much of our success to buying into the Fama/French factor theories Larry articulated so well over the years.

Thanks again, Larry for all of the help you have provided over the years.

I will join others in thanking Larry for his expert insights - it has made a huge difference to how we think and plan finances. Wishing Larry a great retirement time...

I have come to know bh as one of the few sites to get quality feedback not just about finance, but about other topics as well. And it has all been due to contributors like Larry who believe in giving back.

Very sad to hear about the reason behind the departure. I hope this serves as lesson for community - so we do not loose other experts.

I've been a member since 2009 and was a lurker before I became a member. I've made a total of 3 posts in all of that time (now 4). Yet reading posts on these forums every week has given me a wealth of knowledge. If I can retain 1/10 the knowledge I've gained through reading the posts of Larry Swedroe, Taylor Larimore, Rick Ferri, Mel Lindauer, & Jim Dahle I will literally be a much richer person when I retire.

In 2006 I was 32 years old, recently had gotten out of the military, was divorced, had a recent bankruptcy, and any unplanned cost was difficult to meet.

Net Worth Milestones
2006: $-39k
2009: $0
2011: $50k
2014: $150k
2017: $240k

Larry's reason for leaving is totally reasonable, I wish him the best, & thank him for all he has done for me.

PS A fun little bit of information... I still reach these forums by gong to diehards.org

I can only hope that Larry will take a break and then decide to come back and participate at a level that he is more comfortable with and ignoring the "noise." I know that all of us would benefit.

I have to say, a few bad apples can easily spoil the barrel.
I have had a couple of persons post very snarky responses to posts, and it has absolutely caused me to take a break from this site.
It is truly a small number of persons, and the ability to block posters would be a benefit.
There are at least a couple whose responses and posts I completely ignore, one of whom I think was banned (certainly no longer posting).

The second way is to go to the forum's built-in search engine, the "gear" icon in the top-right corner of the page. Search

Then,
Search for author: larryswedroe (copy as shown)
Return first: select "All available" <-- Tip: This will include a full copy of the post in the results.

These are precisely my sentiments. Larry, I sincerely hope you reconsider your decision.

I read the offending thread. It was unnecessarily heated about a unique investment product.

I am a better investor from having read Larry Swedroe’s posts (both at vanguard diehards, in the earlier days; and at bogleheads).

His contributions have been immense – both in volume and substance. Much appreciated and needed in a time when individuals increasingly need to take responsibility for financing their own retirement (with the decline of defined benefit pension plans etc).

Some advisors take pot shots at DIY investors, focusing on failures, as what seems to be a way to try to get more business. In contrast, Larry rolls up his sleeves and tries to help.

Larry, thanks for all your contributions.

Dear Larry,

Please reconsider. You have to have skin of steel to get along in this world, but you also have to think about the GOOD you do versus the the walls you come up against. Everyone should feel welcome all the time in any community they belong to (there are always naysayers). Just stick around.

Thank you and best regards,

I for one, have a VERY low post count but am compelled to post my gratitude for your frequent input. You deserve a stress free life and retirement, but I sincerely hope you return some day soon.

Sad to see Larry go. His posts on valuations really got me thinking about how I invest and what percentage I allocated to domestic equity, international equity, bonds, etc. I had never considered any of that before.

Also, he wrote some very valuable articles on ETF.com. I read them all!

Perhaps you will realize how much you have helped all of us for so long and made us think about what course to take in our investing for success by your hard won experience. I own a good number of your books. It`s hard to ignore those who ridicule us but we must. I hope you will return back here in the future. I wish you good luck going forward.

Good luck Larry in your future and spending more time with your family. One of my favorite topics that he wrote about was how an investor should consider their ability, willingness and need to take risk when considering their asset allocation.

Although we can still read his articles, this is a loss to the Bogleheads site.

I can only echo what others have said. You will be missed here and I do think there will be a real loss here at bogleheads that will not be replaced. I as others have learned so much from you. I have not always agreed with everything you've written but I hope I did not contribute in any negative way to your conversations here. If I have I can truly and sincerely say I'm sorry for that and I do apologize for my actions and the actions of others. Judging by the number of positive responses (4 pages and still going) I'd say you have way more fans here than enemies (or frenemies). That may be too little, too late now unfortunately. Maybe those of us on this forum can find a better way to just "agree to disagree" and leave it at that. I was reading an article at Kitces.com yesterday by his new research associate Derek Tharp and what struck me was after writing hundreds of words on a particular subject (dynamic programming) and comparing it to monte carlo, he stated:

Ultimately, there’s no one “right” way to do retirement planning. Whether it is Monte Carlo versus historical analysis… goals based versus cash flow based planning… or dynamic programming versus non-optimizing approaches… all will give us different insights which can help guide decision making under risk and uncertainty.

Even though math may be inarguable, there are many roads to Dublin. It's what puts the "personal' in personal financial planning. So none of us have a monopoly on the truth. Hopefully, we can all learn to be more forgiving as a result of losing one of our most prestigious, accomplished, intelligent contributors over the years. We all have to say goodbye sometime, but I'm sorry it was under these circumstances. It's trite, but time does heal all wounds. I hope you can come back in the future, even if you post less frequently. If not, your work here has not been in vain. Your posts will not be forgotten.They will live on in perpetuity (or as long as bogleheads does). Best wishes to you Larry, for your future, your family and your retirement.

Thanks Larry for everything. I have enjoyed interacting with you here at the Bogleheads Forum and it has been an honor. Like a pick-up game of basketball in the inner city, sometimes sharp elbows get thrown underneath the basket. Nothing personal, just what happens when smart people get involved in intense discussions. Many best wishes for your upcoming retirement.
