ERICOPOLY Posted May 18, 2018 Share Posted May 18, 2018 Hi, I have been going through a divorce since early 2016. She is trying to take primary custody of my children and wants spousal support arguing that I retired from Microsoft in early 2008 only so that I could busy myself full-time with researching investments. Sanjeev and Mohnish should remember that I contacted them around the time that I retired telling them that I was hoping that they would manage my money. I dragged my feet for years until 2014 but my contacting them should be evidence that I had no plan to make investing a full time "job". It was a hobby that made tons of money, but I repeatedly stated over and over again that I'm just a copycat that can't do fundamental research -- that's not a professional investor. I spent my time socializing on the board. My posts to the old MSN Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders board in early 2008 were all lost. Those posts explained how I retired in order to prioritize my life around focusing on spending time with my children while they are still young. That's exactly what I did until the day I separated from her in August 2016. Since then she has said "I did everything and he only focused on financial matters". Please write me an email explaining what I was posting to the board on this matter if you were on the board all this time. I also have said repeatedly that I just copy from other people and I don't do actual security analysis. I typically kept "bet it all" highly concentrated "portfolios" that require little time to maintain. I needed adult stimulation as being around kids all day can do to a man, so I would comment from time to time during the day on various topics. This board was a social water-cooler outlet for my daycare job. Investing was my hobby and I liked discussing it. I also made lots of off topic comments. Now is the time if you'd like to tell me that I didn't really contribute with any serious fundamental research that would have taken all day long alone in a room to produce. It's the truth and I need that truth to be told by other witnesses. She is also taking me to trial in July for primary custody. We are currently in a custody evaluation with a forensic psychologist and it matters who took care of the children day to day. The sooner the better if you can write me an email. Thanks old friends. I hope to be involved again when this is over. Eric Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
