Well, what's good for the goose is good for the gander, and given Longprkr's ad hominem attacks I feel I must share. In July 2012 Longprkr made the following post:

Dear Moss, No actually, I'm a relatively newcomer to investing and this stock."
And this one in August:

Very interesting. Since I went long with PRKR several months ago, to say this board has been "active" is an understatement."
Now this is interesting, as Yahoo recently brought the message archives out of beta, such that one can search posting history going back years now. Of interest is this first post of Longprkr, nearly 5 YEARS BEFORE HE STATED HE WAS "NEW TO" AND BOUGHT PRKR:
"Re: mid month short position

Hi all. 1st time; long time. Just wanted to add some perspective as to what the volume over the last few weeks consisted of. Since the fall from 15 the total volume equals roughly 6 million. Strike out the double counting of buys and sells that equals roughly 3 millions shares trading hands since then. 1/3 of that was new short positions. I have heard that another 500k sold was due to 2 hedge funds liquidating their assets and going out of business - ie.NOT PRKR specific selling. Sum it all up the fall in the stock price is not necessarily married to a deterioration of the fundamental story or a mass desertion by "those in the know"."
This is quite interesting - he is new to investing and new to PRKR, and didn't go long until a few months ago, but yet he posted a soothing pump piece on Parkervision 5 YEARS AGO. Of course the stock is only down about 75% between then and now but that's neither here nor there.
Sorry Tex. That's not me. My first posts are the ones you've resurrected from a few months back. Whether I used a identity that was used previously and was dropped and was then available when I signed up for Yahoo message board identity...that I don't know about.
