I don't believe ANYbody gets paid here to pump or bash. Why would anybody pay someone to post on an insignificant message board where NOTHING ever posted has had ANY impact on a stock? What's the readership of the Nokia board? 25 people? 30? Even those spammers are robot spammers.
Some folks come here to vent. Some are so invested in their positions, both financially and emotionally, that they need the support of others. Call it the "herd mentality." Some are just passing some time. A few come for ideas. But NObody is getting paid to say anything on the piddly little Yahoo message boards.
