|Survivor - your post on the LBWR board was one of the best posts I've seen and you have been objective in calling the shots with respect to this stock. I also have to commend you on pointing out the hypocrisy of those who take posts out of context. You clearly have seen positive things over the years and invested in LBWR. You saw enough negatives to trade the stock. You have posted both positive and negative comments. It would be taking your posts out of context by attacking a particular post where you posted a positive. In reality, you have been an objective trader, not a blatant bull or bear. You have looked at the situation and assessed it AS OF THE TIME OF YOUR PARTICULAR POST. Those who attack you for doing this just don't want you to post and want to intimidate you. |
As with many or most of us, the prospects of a transparent pinkie were sufficient to get us interested. Over the years, we have been disappointed with the lack of performance as compared to the promise. Yet, many of us assess the risk and the possibilities that the company will become transparent and successful. Pink sheets, almost by definition, present an extremely high risk environment. Anyone buying in should understand this and treat it as if he is playing blackjack in a casino. It is clear, by your posts, that you understand this and that your own trading style has been extremely successful even where an overall macro and specific stock trend has collapsed.
You have pointed out that there are self-styled "cyber sleupps" that seem to spend their lives looking for posts, waiting for those posts to be proven "wrong" perhaps years in the future, when the attacked poster clearly was opining with respect to a short-term trade in a very risky and speculative environment.
Then the "sleupp" claims to be a sleuth, but has merely been shown to be obsessed with posters, not the stock. Ironically, the "sleupp" often will post that he does not care about posters and is here to save the world from other people's scams. Yet, the "sleupp" has access to archives of sometimes 10's of thousands of posts. Even after the environment has changed from the time the attacked poster had posted, the "sleupp" is there to say that the attacked poster was wrong. It's meaningless as the environment and the facts have changed, but the one-track-minded "sleupp" just doesn't understand this. He has one goal and that is to intimidate others from posting opinions. Of course, the "sleupp" also conveniently forgets that there are often opportunities to trade out and in lower, to lower cost basis, and as you have so-well shown us, to actually profit by trading and have freebies.
The "sleupp" does not have time for this as he is too busy with his world of pointing out what he wants others to believe with respect to posters. You raise an interesting question with respect to how a "sleupp" makes money though. I hadn't focused on that.
One question for ya....You say here that you are glad you never had any position in LBWR, right? May I ask why you are so interested in bashing so many stocks that you have no position in? What is the point? Why not spend time being more productive or at least having fun if you are so wealthy that you do not need to work? Or do you consider your postings as work?...Peace and have a great rest of the weekend and happy trading, assuming you do actually trade a stock every now and then....
