    Opko investors I need a little help with a thought I had

    Taking the time to put ignorant, bigoted, and stupid people on ignore is an impossible task. Not sure if it is the internet simply reaching more and more " simplies " , something in the water or a conspiracy. Einstein said something like " there are two things that are infinite, the universe and stupidity, and he was not sure about the universe."

    I nearly wore my key board out hitting ignore. So now the new approach. When we see obvious stupidity, for example, Dr. Frost is now shorting, refrain from posting to it. When we post to that type comment we keep it at the top of the board, encouraging more and more of the same type posts, and posters.

    Post to it positive reinforcement, ignore, negative reinforcement.

    Will this approach make stupidity go away, heck no, it has a near monopoly, is beyond infinite, and growing beyond that. That type post will fall farther and farther down the board, faster and faster, leaving room for discussion, and solid ideas.

    • New investor to OPKO here. I used to work across the street from IVAX when I was a young, foolish kid. Wish I knew then what I know now that I'm a foolish old man. GLTA.

    • On Oct 16, seeing the influx of these posts I thought it would be good to have another board. I created OPKlongs as a group here on yahoo. Not that I want to control it, in fact I would rather not. I invited:

      Drangles
      Appakabba
      OldTimer
      Icemandios
      Burnaka
      Mango
      oextrader

      Not a complete list, but those who I could see seem to have a genuine interest as investors. Not everyone has email addresses attached to their profiles so I use their yahoo handles etc. Ice likes sniffing out the fakes, so I'd nominate him to admin. Please pm me with your email address so I can extend an invite if you think this is a good idea and want to join.
