You must admit that there's a little bit of a personal attack on the part of Sam. You must also admit that a divorce is a highly personal and painful process, similar to a death in the family, it's something when people's privacy must be respected.MMM is a blogger but at the end of the day he is a human being and deserves a little bit of respect. Again, I think Financial Samurai has high standards and these posts, that 12-year old whining attitude are below him and he doesn't have to succumb to that.
Quote from: Sam on December 23, 2018, 08:40:52 AMNigel - I wonder how many more folks are surprised that FS has been around 3 years longer than MMM writing about FIRE. Perhaps this is an opportunity?I just really don't like the spotlight and all the self-promotion (https://www.financialsamurai.com/be-rich-not-famous/). Also, as a minority who lives in expensive San Francisco, I don't think by definition, as many people will relate, even if half the US population lives on the expensive coasts.I've always thought that it would be nice to diversify the FIRE movement.
