Following livesoft's footsteps I'll mention a name whom I have learned a lot from.

teen persuasion

The breadth of knowledge tp has to offer people with a middle class income is amazing. With certain subjects such as the eitc, I'd say few people have a deeper understanding.

Thanks for your contributions teen persuasion!

Nisiprius - he is very good at challenging ideas such as international investing and small value etc. I wonder if he drives a Prius? Never thought about it until I just typed his name.

Vineviz for changing the way I think about diversification.

All of the previous plus these:

Duckie is very helpful with the very long "help me with my Investment" questions. I think he spends hours helping people figure out the most cost effective choices to get their AA just right.

Retiredjg has spent a lot of time helping me out.



There are so many others that have helped me out over the years. Thanks so much to everyone!

My favorites are the ones who have changed my thinking on things

Bobcat2, viveviz, and nisiprius.

I would also add Larry Swedoroe but he changed my thinking in the opposite of the way he intended (against SV and factor tilting in general). Which sounds like a slam but it's really not. I'm actually very appreciate of his posting as it helped me to reevalute my own assumptions which is always helpful. :sharebeer

We rookie Boglehead posters stand in awe of those mentioned in this thread.

Each of those mentioned share their knowledge so generously, even when the question asked is very simple. Literally thousands of people have benefited from their collective knowledge.

I especially respect the administrators and moderators who keep us all straight and in line ..
