timefreedom, I agree with all you say... but by budfox asking questions here he "is" digging. When you are a blank slate, you have to start somewhere. Once he has asked enough questions to formulate a plan of action, then of course, the results will be "all on him". I may be wrong, but what I see in budfox is youthful enthusiasm, and the answers he is getting from futures.io (formerly BMT) aren't so much trying to "tell him what to do", but rather to provide him (her?) with more information in order to make better informed decisions. First he will have to determine for himself if futures.io (formerly BMT) is a source of helpful information or not, and then formulate his own plan from the information he has gathered.
Sometimes the best way is for the kid to touch the hot stove. Then they learn not to do it again on their own.
