wisdom! passionate negativity implies higher ntdoy stock value
I saw a post on the Visa message board saying not to reply to obvious bashers because they are getting paid per response they provoke. A link to the full basher's handbook is at the bottom- here are some of the items that seem familiar (i.e. "Use multiple ISP's, handles and aliases")on nintendo's board!
Lesson 1: Remember, BASHERS NEVER BASH A BAD STOCK. Watch the board for stocks with no potential. They never have any bashers. Bashers only go after stocks that are going upwards or have excellent potential to go up. Bashers get left behind, so they want to bring the price down.
Lesson 2: BASHERS ALWAYS BRING UP OLD NEWS THAT YOU HAVE HEARD MANY TIMES.
Lesson 3: BASHERS POST MANY TIMES A DAY. They try to wear you out. They comment on everything, every other post, and can answer every question. THEY KNOW IT ALL! There is no positive comment they won't bash. They try to control the board. True longs may have to address the bashers or they will appear to the newbies as being the people with all the information.
Lesson 5: The bashers know YOU CAN'T VERIFY THEIR STATEMENTS. That's why they make the statements they do.
Lesson 8: BRING THE PRICE DOWN. That is the basher's job. The truth is not important. Lies are the norm. Post continuously on the board every day. They are trying to hit the newbies visiting the board. They are trying to wear out the longs on the board. They do whatever it takes to wear the longs out.
BASHERS DO THE FOLLOWING: 1. Be anonymous 2. Use 10% fact. 90% suggestion. The facts will lend credibility toyour suggestions. 3. Let others help you learn about the stock. Build rapport and a support base before initiating your bashing routine. 4. Enter w/ humor and reply to all who reply to you. 5. Use multiple ISP's, handles and aliases. 6. Use two (2) or more aliases to simulate a discussion. 7. Do not start with an all out slam of the stock. Build to it. 8. Identify your foes (hypsters) and the boards "guru" Use them to your advantage. Lead them do not follow their lead. 9. Only bash until the tide/momentum turns. Let doubt carry it the rest of the way. 10. Give the appearance of being open minded. 11. Be bold in your statements. People follow strength.
14. Don't worry about being labeled a "basher". Newbies won't know your history. 15. When identified put up a brief fight, then back off. Return in an hour unless your foe is a weak in reasoning powers. 16. Your goal is to limit the momentum of the run. Not to tank the company or create a plunge in the stock; be subtle and consistent. 17. Kill the dreams of profits, not the company or the stock.
23. If the price rises blame it on the hype or the PR, temporary mass reaction, the market, etc. Anything but the stock itself.
26. Three or four aliases can dominate a board and wear down the longs. 27. Bait the hypsters into personal debates putting their focus/efforts on you and not the stock or facts. Divert their attention from facts. Show them the facts from a "different angle." 28. Promote other stocks that would-be investors can turn to instead of the one your bashing.
Mary. . .I would imagine a "Basher" would need to be intelligent. Convincing people to sell should take more than the current shorts moronic posts. I don't think you have a paid basher on this board however you do have some dolts who think that the "superior playability" of the PS3 and the Xbox correlates to NTDOY being a poor investment / company. When they finally figure out to post on the gamers board will be the time when most posts are halfway intelligent.
You can take them more serious if they present a negative followed by a semblance of logic or fact. Could be a technical negative or a fundamental negative. The majority of the current negative posts are simply asinine assumptions and guesses. Technical’s on NTDOY (Technically) don't work since the pink sheets volume is irrelevant.
Anyway. . .take the positives and negatives off the board with a grain of salt.
