It's clear as crystal. Bears have been losers over the past few weeks and bulls have been the winners. No amount of rationalization will change that fact. That aside, trading is a deep personal endeavour towards certain monetary goals, not a competition with some virtual characters on message boards. All these polarization on message boards is pretty silly and is only a reflection of confirmation bias. As for Atlasshrugged, i have seen umpteen real-time trades from him over the years and his credibility has never been in question. Bullish or bearish, he has always been unequivocal about the direction he plays.
First of all, NAV, no oneís questioning his credibility. Iíve re-read the thread again, and Iíve found no such thing, unless asking question in your opinion is questioning credibility.
Second, is this a personal issue calling me silly about my posts? I could come up with quite a few of your silly posts in the past. Did I say something about you lately? In fact, I donít even read any of your posts unless they happened to be in the threads that I was reading. Why getting personal with me?
Easy buddy. I said all these competitive atttitude on message boards is silly. You seem to suffer from some sort of persecution complex, taking every comment on a message board as personal attack. Grow up man !
Well, only because you had commented on something that's not factual. And, if it's not factual, it's conceptual. So, what else would I have taken it?
I could come up with a ton of real silly posts here, and I've not seen you criticizing any of them.
You gorw up, son.
There was a guy called Moneyfriend on this board. He thought he was a gift to mankind and he voted himself out of this board, citing persecution from TT members and TT members not worthy of his TA skills. He moved over to da_cheif's site played the same emotional drama and kicked himself out of that site too. Let me tell ya. You seem to going in the same direction. You seem to be so sensitive about every friggin comment on a message board and possess a convoluted mindset to spin everything into a personal attack. Seriously, think for a second. Why would anyone have any personal vendetta about some virtual character called Techman on a message board ? A healthy debate involves disagreements. TT is not a sychophant club.
Again, stay focus with me here, NAV. Rembmer this thread's "Separating Facts from Fiction".
Why would you have commented on something thatís not even referenced in this thread? Iíve seen no one questioning anyoneís credibility.
Now, more importantly, you donít know me, and I donít know you. And, youíre comparing me to someone that you may or may not know in person. Is this factual or conceptual? You know what discrimination is, right?
Itís absolutely not true that I ďseem to be so sensitive about every friggin comment on a message board and possess a convoluted mindset to spin everything into a personal attackĒ. This threadís an excellent example. Did I get personal with atlasshrugged? Absolutely not. Therefore, once again, what youíre saying is not true. And, Iím sure youíve seen me in heated debates with quite a few members here. Iíve not recalled getting personal with them except for 2 posters, and now you.
So, tell me, when youíre saying all these things about me thatís not true, what else would I have taken it?
What you need to do is go back and read Nav's first comment. By my reading he says nothing "personal" about you. Yet that is definitely how you took it. Frankly I think Nav nailed it when he refers to your seeming "persecution complex". This is not the first time you illustrated it. You know, you've been here about 4 months. Nav has been posting here for years, as long as I have. I don't recall right now that Nav has had any particular difficulties with anyone up to now. Something for you to think about.
And, who are you? The arbitrator on board? What makes you feel that youíd always have to step in to interfere with my affair with other members? What is it?
Why do I bother with you when you and I would never change our minds about each other? Iím staying firm with what I believe what you really are, and Iím sure you are too. Like Iíve said, youíre one of the only 2 posters that Iíve had problems with.
