payed hypsters and 'copy cats': Having had a popular thread on silicon investor for the past 1 1/2 years, it is so easy to spot the hypsters that anyone succumbing to them has only themselves to blame. We on Market Gems follow up any stock selection advice with in-depth technical and/or fundamental analysis to back up our picks. If occasionally a stock like "IDGB" looks good it is obvious to all and not something mysterious that will 'take off' somewhere in the future. If we mention an 'earnings play' that looks good it is obvious and we always follow up our picks with the results. Doing you own DD is important and I would not suggest you follow someone's stock selection without doing you own in depth analysis. That is why you have at your disposal wonderful information like YHOO finance, Edgar filings, www.dailystocks.com, Zacks Investment Research, etc. etc. I've been an active stock trader for the past 2 1/2 years and have never bought on anyone's recommendation alone without checking it out. So don't blame the posters, you are considered fair game in this free world. Do your own research and you will be fine.

It did bother me however that raging bull used the "Market Gems' name without asking or consulting me for that privilege, especially since we've taken the trouble to 'copyright' it.. Copying the success of Silicon Investor will be an almost impossible task for them to achieve. At least I hope they will look for creative and original ways to reach that goal and not just become carbon copies of SI.. As far as I know a carbon copy is never as perfect as an original.
