Fool Boards Free Again

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007 | Research Tools with 40 Comments

I was surprised to discover that the Motley Fool Discussion Boards are once again free.  I can say that much of my early financial education came from lurking and occasionally participating on these message boards. I even subscribed for a year or two before I discovered other message boards and blogs where most of the Fool members fled to.

There is just one catch.  You need a private invitation to poat messages on the Fool Discussion Boards.  I can provide 20 of these invitations to readers of Fat Pitch Financials.  Just leave a comment below indicating your interest and be sure to provide your email address when filling out the comment form.

I’m pretty excited to check out some of my old favorite boards.  These include:

I hope to find some time this week to explore these discussion boards.  Of course, you’ll also find me hanging out on my own forum at Value Investing News.  No invitations are required for the VIN forum and registration is free.

  • Whoop… forgot email in body:

    Matt Galas August 7th, 2007 at 10:21 am
  • There is no need to include your email address in the text of your message. In fact, you should avoid doing this so spam bots don’t discover your address.

    I’ve sent invitations to:
    John Hall, Steve, Matt Galas, and David Chan so far.

    Vern I couldn’t invite you because you’ve instructed Motley Fool to not email you. Sorry about that.

    Feel free to keep the invitation requests coming.
