Ladies and Gentlemen (and I use this term looseLEH):
I beLEHve I have a solution for this hot board which I have designated Regulation NMTT (does not trade on the NDAQ). NMTT stands for "no more trash talk."
Implementation of Reg NMTT would require the moderators and/or administrators to set-up several new forum topic threads such as:
Posters Who Hate Each Other which would be for the 10 or so posters who can't stand each other for whatever reason to incessantly post messages such as "your mama has more hair on her upper lip than you have on your chest."
Jones Sucks/Jones Rocks which would be for the former Ed Jones' brokers who hate the firm and/or the ones who are still there and love it.
Stock Tips from LoveLEHGirls (or boys) which would strictLEH used to post research notes which say "fill it to the brim with RIMM" at appropriate times:
http://finance.yahoo.com/q/bc?s=RIMM&t=5d
(hit Mr. Kvall's 6 month price target in 3 trading sessions post split adjusted)
SeriousLEH ladies and gents, this hot board does read like a junior high bathroom stall at times and it amazes me that persons who make their living in the financial services sector can be that immature and can't find better things to do with their time.

Is there a more compelling reason to continue doing it?

I was just giving Jeff (the LEHman) kudos for making a nice call last week, that's all.
What do you think about expanding this hot board to have 2 or 3 other forum topics like:
4 Trash Talkers OnLEH (where 4 letter words that don't trade on the NDAQ are not onLEH permitted but encouraged)
Posters Who Like To Trash Each Others' Mamas (the 10 or so who hate each other)
I Am Having A Bad Hair Day (for personal problem discussions)
Stock Tips (probabLEH not a good idea to have that one)

It is highly questionable that Registered Reps are on firm legal ground posting stock tips.
I think you can count on fhe fact that the RR mag staff has considered it and ruled it out.
There are plenty of such sites out there, but you really should just stick to asset gathering and let others manage the money.

You'd better read your firm's compliance manual.

"it amazes me that persons who make their living in the financial services sector can be that immature and can't find better things to do with their time."
I agree, and I'm also amazed that they have no interest in properly investing their client's nesteggs. 
What they have provided is a sickening look at the soul of 'financial advisors'.
There is no rational reason I can think of for providing a new forum on this site (or any reputable site) solely for filthy posts. That this is reasonably suggested as an outlet for the profanity on here is sad.
