    trouble in paradise

    This message is intended for the individual whose
    Yahoo handle is quite an apt name for the contents and
    implications of his last post.

    To even marginally
    consider that you called this recent drop in BD stock as
    far back as March (the date of the reference post) is
    ludicrous and idiotic. I also consider it to be an insult
    to my intelligence and common sense.

    following is to be read in a heavy sarcastic tone) I ask
    you, since you were obviously 100% on the money about
    BD dropping like this, and furthermore obviously a
    true and rare genius, there is no doubt that you are a
    millionaire many times over. Right? I mean seriously, you
    predicted three months ago that BD was gonna get hammered,
    didn't you? Being that you were so certain, I'm sure you
    sold all your holdings (if you were long), shorted the
    stock as much as possible, and purchased put options at
    exactly the price to which the stock would fall. You must
    have, you're a genius.

    (The following is to be
    read in a very serious, but also very annoyed tone)
    Please, don't waste our time with a post saying "I told
    you so." Its a waste of all our time and worse off,
    an insult to everyone's intelligence.

    always, comments, criticisms, and the like are welcome
