The Motley Fool's CAPS investing service is great way for investors to work together to beat the market -- and maybe get famous while they're at it. Among its features, CAPS encourages users to blog about their picks, investing strategy, market view, their favorite ice cream flavor, or whatever floats their boat.
As the CAPS blogosphere continues to grow, players are adding more great content on a daily basis. To make it easier to find some of the gems out there, I've dug through the past week's posts to find some of CAPS' best insights. Of course, with room for only seven posts here I can't possibly cover all of the great stuff in the CAPS blogosphere. So when you're done here I highly recommend heading over to CAPS and checking out what some of the other investors have to say.

But before he bolts, he took some time to talk about a number of things including the market craziness, his involvement with the new Motley Fool Pro, and what he learned from shorting DryShips

The new bear market: Darwin's market
What's there to like about a bear market? Well, if you think about it the way BuffettBoy2 does, there's plenty to like. As BuffettBoy points out, these market and economic downturns work like a weeding out process giving us an economic survival of the fittest. And as outoffocus pointed out in a comment, the same goes for weeding out the weakest investors. Check out BuffettBoy's blog to find out exactly why he wants to change the phrase "bear market" to "Darwin market."
