It's only slightly, partially about being "bright" -- it's more about being humble enough to take advice from others who are eminently more experienced than you are, particularly when you don't like the advice, diligent enough to self-study and research without expecting others to hand you answers, flexible and adaptable and willing to change to learn new things, creative enough to "be yourself" while still incorporating new ways of doing things, among many others, all of which Gary is. He has been trading for 40 years, and is probably the person on this forum most rooted in the practical, reality, the least theoretical, if you will. I'm not finger pointing at you or anyone by the way, just saying it.

I was not making an implication, I was being direct and saying that you did report the post. If you did not (and I really don't care) you are still the antagonist here, the first to criticize, and completely wrong. Any doubt about that is cleared up in the subsequent "apology" post.

Josh, it's not that I don't like his advice, it's that I truly just don't understand most of it. I know for a fact that I'm not alone in that, so I want other people on futures.io (formerly BMT) to see that there could be another way to trade and learn. Or at least debate that, instead of having a policy of "my way or the highway".
Also, I'm not questioning TT's trading abilities, experience and expertise, so I'm not sure why everybody feels the need to defend them. I'm questioning just his teaching technique/style and more importantly, the monopoly* of it.
And I've learned long ago after opening my journal here that nobody is going to hand me the answers, I don't expect them to. I do plenty of my own reading, researching, practicing, failing, changing, failing again and hopefully learning. And I have a long way to go. And unlike Tiger, I don't claim my way to learn to be the only way. It's what works for me and I don't post advice in other people's journals much. This was my first time commenting in somebody's journal for a long time and last for sure. Tomorrow is time to focus on my own thing.
Thanks for your opinion and help.

Well, I'm a big girl and I can take care of myself, I don't need and army of defenders to come to my rescue, I'm sure Tiger Trader doesn't either.
So, why don't you ask Big Mike and see if you were wrong in your assumptions about my reporting the post and then apologize for it if you are such a proponent of the truth.
One doesn't have to be right or wrong, life is not always back and white. We can have a diversity of opinions here. My opinion can not be wrong simply because it's an opinion not a fact. I am merely stating my opinion, which is true to me, but doesn't have to be true to you. That's what's called the difference of opinions.
Let's agree to disagree.
PS. I wasn't told before about the unspoken rule that nobody is allowed to criticize TT, only he is allowed to criticize everybody. Now I know. That was educational. Thank you.
