This post probably won't last long, but I know of three others:
financial-planning.com
topgunproducers.com
vault.com
There are probably others.

I like the etiquette at financial-planning:
We encourage frank and open exchanges of opinion on matters that affect your practice and the industry at large, but please remember to be courteous and respect differences of opinion.
Here are the basic rules. Those who violate them will be banned from the boards.


  1. No personal attacks. You can criticize someone's opinion, but no insults.
  2. No rude language. If a word or phrase is inappropriate in front of your mother, it's inappropriate here.
  3. No selling. If you just bought a great new computer program and want to tell your colleagues about it, go ahead. If you sell or manufacture a great computer program (or fund, or insurance policy, or annuity), you can't advertise it here.
  4. No libel. This isn't just a matter of policy-it's about getting sued. You may write: "I don't think the people at XYZ Financial do a good job of training new reps." But you may not write: "The people at XYZ Financial are crooks."
  5. No disguises. We discourage the use of anonymous handles, but don't ban them outright. However, anyone who uses a handle in attempt to masquerade as another poster will be banned.

Most of the ex-Jones brokers use this site to call them crooks. Of course they don't use their own names.
