Exactly DS,

SOME of us have to work and don't have the luxury to sit around all day, clicking the update button.

Sorry about your headache, unc, but let me divert your focus by adding a pain in your neck. If you'll read the header post I think you'll find you're missing something. How about fixing it?

cuf

The purpose of this thread is to discuss Gorilla & King investments. The only thing considered <Off Topic> is rudeness, though frank discussion is encouraged. Personal insights are welcomed, as they will allow us to know each other better. To this end, posters are requested to provide some basic information in their profiles. The primary focus should be on growing our portfolios.

ya got a point there....i am missing it all.

That's right. On other threads I (usually) try to be as polite as my model (UF), but here I am a rich, fat cat that just doesn't really give a crap.

So?

OT Unclewest, you are a wise ass!

(Note that I am abiding by the rules of this thread, by labelling this rude post as "OT". )

How can you be a curmudgeon and not be rude?

>> How can you be a curmudgeon and not be rude?

I prefer AMF's definition, DS:

"curmudgeon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner."

Blunt is fine, but even on this thread, I'd discourage rudeness.

cuf
