This thread is not intended to be one to bash others, particularly because of their stock pics.
This thread is not intended to be one just to bash stock picks. Negative posts, ideally, should have links to filings or accurate statements of facts. A statement that XYZQ is a POS will likely cause the dreaded "BAN," perhaps with a prior warning, but maybe not.
Financers, vulture or otherwise, equity investors such as PIPE's, etc. This is a little tougher. I'd prefer something like "Here is a deal that may lead to lots of potential dilution. This financer has a history of doing them and then provide some links." I'd prefer that we don't have blanket statements that ALL their deals "suck," but maybe all their deals do, in fact, suck.
Touts, bashers, promoters, IR - etc. I would welcome posts from anybody, even if connected to a company, with opinions and factual links. For example, "This is a good promotion because the promoter is only getting a one time payment of $5000." or This is a SHAREHOLDER-FRIENDLY management. They are in there with shareholders and not raping shareholders with massive dilution. Their salaries and perks are reasonable, etc.
THIS IS NOT INTENDED AS A THREAD JUST TO POINT OUT BAD STUFF ALTHOUGH THAT IS HUMAN NATURE. LET'S FIND SOME COMPANIES THAT CAN BE CALLED "SHAREHOLDER FRIENDLY." Many consider those last 2 words to be an oxymoron, so let's see if we can find some that can be considered relatively friendly to us small retail investors.
Disagreements - Once opinions start getting repetitive, without adding anything, they start to become just mindless bashing and we all have been there. Warnings and ultimate "bans," may be remedies.
Legal CYA - no legal advice or opinions and no recommendations to buy, sell, hold, or just stare into the sun, (just checking to see if you are awake) are provided on any message boards. Anyone who relies on message board posters deserves and will likely lose all their money and wind up sitting in a homeless shelter, with no friends or relatives admitting to even know his or her name. Consider everything posted here and elsewhere on the internet as being from someone with his own personal agenda, misdirected, wrong, a lie, foolish, or some combination thereof.
Personal crap - I'm probabably too busy to enforce all the rules or to get personally involved with defending them. So, the decisions of the moderator are final, binding, but can be changed at his total discretion. As I'm pretty argumentative, I'm trying not to get involved in this type of waste of time crap. I can usually out mindlessly bash most bashers, but no need to prove it again. LOL. Got it?
