    Your posts are insightful and authoritative on the subject matter that is being discussed.
    I agree the OP wasn't "listening," but I'm with WCI and spiritrider on the deleted sentence. There isn't really any need to dump on newer members. The rest of the critique stood on its own. I hope the OP came back to read Jim's post, which seemed to me to get at the factors involved in the decision, which is what he seemed to be asking about, but I suspect not since the OP seemed quick to take offense.

    Upvote any accolades to spiritrider x 100. I doubt you’re going to be able to get him to share personal info beyond what he already has shared in responses, but would love for him to prove me wrong.

    EDIT: Never mind, I just found it

    Besides tax advice, spiritrider uses a Breakfast of Champions. I suspect he has a side gig or a hobby of researching and translating the tax code.
    I may have misinterpreted who you meant to share more. SR is not one to mess with trolling. An example that when you retire, your brain doesn’t need to cease functioning. Intellectual curiosity and problem solver. Retired.

    Recovered my forgotten password to join in expressing my appreciation for spiritrider. Whenever I come across a post from you I always click your profile and review all your recent posts to make sure I haven’t missed anything.

    Funny, I thought about posting something similar (not knowing there was a confrontation). I just wanted to share my appreciation for all the information from spiritrider over the years. I've learned a lot!

    I feel super smart sometimes if I can understand spiritrider’s answer. Some real head scratchers for me. Let alone pretending I know the answer.

    I also want to appreciate Spiritrider. I also found the thread.
    I had not read that thread until this one popped up. I selectively read threads. I assume that is what other moderators do. Some threads I read because the topic is of interest to me. Some I read because the poster who starts the thread is interesting to me. Some threads I read because posters who are of interest to me are posting in it.
    Some threads I do not read at all.

    Spiritrider is a beacon in an inscrutable swamp of IRS mumbo-jumbo.

    The comment calling spiritrider a troll on the other thread made me laugh. I pictured a wise old troll with a giant brain, carrying around a massive book of all the regulations to refer to on the rare occasion the facts weren’t readily accessible. The best kind of troll, the helpful knowledgeable factual kind.

    Don’t moderators actually ban people?
    However, spiritrider has probably given out more cost/benefit expertise than any other source on the internet. The value of the breadth and depth of the tax code, the complexity as well as how to “fix” things is beyond the scope of the vast majority of “specialists” (read that as attorneys and CPA’s). All for free. Many have probably been save substantial amounts and he never fails to provide references to the relevant tax code sections. WCI might consider something like a HOF or GOAT or whatever.
    I find it more like a work of art, he makes it look so easy, step 1 ,step 2, step 3. A rare talent with a dash of common sense thrown in.
    Maybe a trophy, the Spirit Rider Award presented at WCICON. Greenblazer and dinner.
    Full disclosure: I am not a writer, just an admirer.

    I second this sentiment. Also kudos to White.Beard.Doc as well. Your posts are equally insightful

    Hey now, you know there’s no place for admitting your wrong on the internet.

    as said, your comments are always well appreciated. I always stop to read your comments, even if I am just scrolling through posts .

    Curious: what’s your primary profession? May be other members already know .
    are you a physician ? CPA?
