I'd like to broaden my knowledge base. Please post your other favorite Retirement Forums here.

I've visited Mr Mustache, but found it to be a little too frugal for my tastes I mean, really.....who steals sugar packets from diners and then goes to the internet to brag about it. Even the Toilet Paper in the Rest Rooms is fair game for that bunch.

I was visiting a site called "Balance" but there was not much new content there.

The bogleheads make for interesting reading, but they are a little too dogmatic for me, "Why don't you increase your Bond Allocation in the face of rising Interest Rates ?!?!? How can you have any pudding, if you don't eat your meat ?!?!?!"

Morningstar requires a signup including home address and phone number -- no thanks, my phone rings all day with unsolicited baloney and the mailman brings paper versions of the same BS.


Where else do you good folks go for the variety of information we get here (including 75 pages of what Trump will do to Social Security).

Pretty sure posting links to competing fora is against the TOS...

No need for a link, just post the title and I'll find it. The Internet is not always needle@haystack.com

I frequent the Early Retirement often, there are some very good ideas there.

Does Christine Benz have a free site, other than MorningStar ??

I wish that early retirement would just loosen up some on allowing discussions that included partisan politics and more opinionated debates. A combination of CD-Retirement/Economics and early retirement would be awesome!

The early retirement board is very clickish, its their way or nothing. Not everyone is a bean counter. Part of what makes a good forum is peoples uncensored thoughts and ideas. I take a look every now and then but nothing you can't find on any other search.

Same with a lot of forums. I don't frequent those any more. I prefer to state my opinions freely on C-D. Eventually they will lose their advertising money.

I think CDF does a fantastic job with its tech aspects, broad kinds of forums, and tolerance for hundreds of thread in each forum. Posters for the most part (well, maybe except Politics) post intelligent and interesting comments and it can be more interesting than reading some books. I'm amazed at how much there is to read and learn, and it's all in present time.

If you're looking for early retirement financial stuff, that's just one segment of CDF-Retirement. There are surely targeted websites for that; mathjak has pointed out others.
