This is the definitive searchable reincarnation of the SWR Research Group board, which was live at www.nofeeboards.com for about 21 months beginning July 2003.

A team has been working very hard to proof and clean up the links in what was left after the shutdown of the SeWeR board at NFB. Most formatting information was lost when the board was dumped into the bit bucket. Some links cannot be resolved because they point to threads or posts at the now defunct NFB. Any reader who spots a problem with the proofreading is invited to report it either by posting as a guest in this thread or via email to the poster of this announcement. (Do not attempt to register an id. The board's software will refuse all attempts.)

Rob Bennett appears in three incarnations, the earliest of which was the userid hocus. Banned in short order by NFB's administrator for his destructive behavior, he was reincarnated first as RobBennett and then as hocus2004 after JWR1945 cajoled and then paid the administrator to reinstate Rob with moderation authority. Mere months later, hocus stopped presenting arguments and started controlling debate by deleting viewpoints contrary to his own. In disgust, NFB's administrator shut the entire forum down, removed all the posts resurrected here, and banned hocus from participating in any way on his entire site.

JWR1945's pathology is different. 40% of the posts to the board were his and reviews while proofreading indicate that they largely fall into just a few categories:
  • JWR talking to himself
  • JWR lecturing someone who dares to interrupt while he is talking to himself
  • JWR quoting himself
  • Spouting column after column of meaningless numbers
  • Patting hocus on the back
Amalgamating the three hoco-ids, 42 people posted to this board during its life. Only 25 posted more than 5 times, as it became clear that the board was dominated (~60% of all posts) by two complete nutters, one of whom could delete others' posts on a whim. It is possible that others posted while the board was in operation but wholesale unrecorded deletion by hocus as moderator makes it impossible to be certain.

When asked at Morningstar's boards about this group, JWR responded
Click here for the link.

It is lie.


I would like to be clear that every effort is being made to be as accurate as possible in restoring formatting. The only text that is being added is in the format [proofreader's note] to show that there is a question about how something should read. Many links have been changed to allow for linking within the board. Although this has not been easy, we've tried hard to be accurate. If JWR1945 or anyone else wants to point out links that are incorrect, please do.
