Link to WRP 133

I have read every WRP posted and was a little disappointed.
unfortunately, there is nothing new here.

At all. It's just another summation.

I don't know why he posted this except to shut up the people clammoring for WRP 133.

well, the backgound is green this time....that's new.

boring stuff,

typical "things are not good but not so bad" stuff, people on this forum want to hear the bad stuff,

can't wait for de Jager's next post

Too right, I could have culled a few messages from this forum and put them together as one page and made more info than was in WRP 133.

You know, to be fair, what's left to be said or written? I suspect Cory's is as weary--probably more so--of all this as we are.

It probably would have made better reading to some had Cory expounded on risks of which he knows little, a not uncommon exercise hereabouts, but he honestly admitted that "shortcoming."

-- Vic (, December 15, 1999.

Why does it feel like I've just been "merchandized" for the last year and a half? It's that sinking feeling, like when Jerry Falwell said he wouldn't comment on his maybe our man here is backing off after having made a "reputation" for himself....or, if I had any sense, I should just conclude that Cory is being completely honest. Me, a housewife who only makes food and does laundry, could have written 75% of that WRP 133. So who needs "experts"?

-- Dot (, December 15, 1999.

Perhaps so, Plonk and Hamster, but I want to acknowledge that Cory has provided interesting, industry-insightful information and perspectives over a long period of time. I've really appreciated it.

Cory's newsletter gave me my FIRST heads-up, and is one of the many reasons I am now.....

-- (resolved@this.point), December 15, 1999.

Here's my 2 cents. Thank you Cory. Thank you very much.

You sure got that right.

-- R. Wright (, December 15, 1999.

In general, this Forum gets far far more information than Cory has time to assemble. He should look at all Homer Beanfang's threads! He does not keep abreast of actual failures as well as this Forum does.

-- cory limited (but@writes.well), December 15, 1999.

Man. You guys are tough...

Apparently, most people did not realize that Cory is not a doomer and is often referred to as a polly. However, in this, his final assesment, he has become more pessimistic. Does that not tell you something?

-- a (a@a.a), December 15, 1999.

Cory is a godsend - he's up there with Gary north in saving lives should this turn real ugly - he's stuck with it...

unlike that money-grabbing pus-bag de jager

-- Andy (, December 15, 1999.


I appreciate your input on this one. I was ready to turn in my platinum POLLYANNA card. [Um...WHEN exactly did Cory turn Polly?] A week or two of water and he's NOT bugging out? Hmmm.

80-hour work weeks sound pretty good to ME right now, although I've not seen moths as interested in light as Cory seems to be.

-- Anita (, December 15, 1999.

And, of course, the trolls would never dream of posting a fake criticism, would they?

-- Old Git (, December 15, 1999.

Old Git-

good god, I hope you don't think I'm a troll....yeeeesh.
