    Who are these idiots?

    I was quickly reminded of why I so seldom visit Motley Fool anymore.

    Not only are these guys woefully uninformed (so much that they get people's and company's names wrong), they present no evidence whatsoever to support the highly contentious assertion that McClendon has actually done anything conflicting with his role as CEO. (Questionable appearance proves nothing)

    What a waste of time. Rest assured, I won't be returning to the site until I've once again forgotten how worthless it is.
