I'm glad you've found us. Once again, if you haven't yet watched the introductory video, I encourage you to take the time to do it now:

New Site For TF Metals Report

We've gone to great lengths to get things perfect but, if you notice some typos or if you have suggestions to make the site even better, please contact us through the link in the navigation bar.

Hopefully, the site will run smoothly and the transition from blogspot will be seamless. However, spam and DOS attacks are rather commonplace these days so please try to remain patient if the site encounters any technical difficulties. For example, we've already had someone run an automated program that generated over 250,000 attempts to log/hack into the site while it was under construction. Thankfully, this person wasn't successful but who knows what we'll encounter now that it's live.

Once again, thank you for making this all possible. Let's continue to make this "community" someplace special and unique. Help each other. Treat others the way you wish to be treated. Learn and share.

Now, go explore and have some fun! TF

I have nothing of substance to say here, but I wanted to be sure to get in a comment on the first day of this new site.

I look forward to participating much more here than I did on the previous site (I posted there a whopping once).

Congrats on the new site!!

Congrats on the new site!! For some reason, these word verifications really don't like me, but at least the site is cool!

Jun 14, 2011 - 5:26pm

site traffic

We should easily make this site number one.

Jun 14, 2011 - 5:28pm

Dr. Copper?

Small suggestion.

How about a copper chart on the first page alongside the gold, silver & USDX? Maybe oil too?

Great site - look forward to watching it grow.

PS: For anyone having trouble with the CAPTCHA, try (verify using image) -- it will tell you the letters to type.

LOVE the ability to edit posts.

PS: Are you SURE the 250K random hits weren't over-eager Turdites tearing at the bits to get a glimpse of the new site?

Congrats on the new site

Made some quick cash riding the mini silver from 35.00 to 35.50 today. That is as much up or down as I will let things move in this kind of volatility.

Orale Turd!

This is great and I look forward to blog, comments and sharing. My partners and I are also focused on educating and helping to prepare others for the future. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Cliché, but true.

Jun 14, 2011 - 5:40pm


I found Turd's old blog about a month ago and have followed it religiously since. The first day of the new web site so I just have to post. I made some fiat money following the wisdom of Turd and other posters here the last couple weeks and started stacking physicals.

All I want to say is thank you, Turd and all the posters. Congratulations and best wishes!

Word Verification - Try Incognito/Private Browsing

Some people suggested the "verify using audio" to pass the word verification on the registration form. That didn't work for me unfortunately.

However, I completed registration by putting the browser into Incognito/Private Browsing, thereby possibly bypassing any stale cache and/or cookie related issues. Hope this helps.

Hopefully we can all push/pull each other through the summer shenanigans of the regime and reap the rewards of our continued efforts to protect our wealth and compile gains. Thanks for bringing us all together !!!!

Awesome website

Longtime lurker, first time poster... Congrats on the new site!

Jun 14, 2011 - 5:47pm

Fantastic Layout!

Just wanted to give my thanks to the Turd for the great layout. Lots of white space, easy to read, pretty straightforward navigation. Over time, I am sure that we all will become experts at moving through the various forum chats, and what not.

Thanks again Turd!

Thanks and a hat tip to Tyler too.

If it weren't for Tyler and Marla over at ZH, I never would have found The Turd. The site looks great, Turd! Congrats on getting it up and running.

Jun 14, 2011 - 5:50pm


Congratulations on the site, Turd. Thanks, and keep up the good work. I hope I can find my way around so I don't have to ask my kids!

Jun 14, 2011 - 5:50pm
