  • MAllen and Webby haven't posted in some time--anyone have a clue about their whereabouts? I hope that they're ok--sincerely.

    MAllen and I have a 15-33 bet, and it looks like I'll be calling it soon.

    • Nice duhtroit circle jerk you started here. You boast when it is manipulated up and disappear when it settles down to real value.

      Let us know when it's back to IPO level, and you can brag when it goes up from there.

      Duhtroit!

    • {{MAllen and I have a 15-33 bet, and it looks like I'll be calling it soon.}}

      Made it to $32.44 today, getting very close. MAllen, if you're out there (I'm sure he is), man up. Admit that Supor was right and you were wrong.

      • Interesting--when MAllen initially accepted this bet in Fall 2011, he even offered to disappear from this mb should he lose. That was his confidence level, he was dreaming of BK 2 for GM.

        I asked him to simply offer a concession and hang around, but he's disappeared before our bet is even called.

        I wonder if his intense anti-GM rants burnt out his computer, or could it be divine intervention? Hmmmm...............

    • I don't think it's all that unusual for bashers to disappear when their target consistently performs well. But, I sure thought both these guys were committed bashers that would never leave. Your concern for their well being may be well founded!

      Sentiment: Buy

        I think you nailed it Cheblammo. Neither was very astute regarding the operation of a business and the benchmarks of an on going concern, particularly MAllen. They had nothing to base their predictions on besides an unexplained hatred of this company. Neither could differentiate in their minds between the old GM and the new, therefore they believed it was going to go bankrupt again.

        If anything, I think the fact that the company is doing reasonably well, even at lower volume levels is a testament to what was really wrong at the old GM. Most of what went away were fixed legacy costs that couldn't be overcome such as the long term debt and health care costs. Of course there were other smaller things, but I believe that was the main thing. They couldn't get that. They couldn't understand that the bankruptcy eliminated most of the debt and that the "de-Americanizing" of a lot of the operations solved a good part of each of those issues.

      • " I sure thought both these guys were committed bashers that would never leave."

        Man, when I first visited in Fall 2011, this dynamic duo carried on like they owned this MB. The brutal, in your face, profanity-laced poundings from these self-proclaimed authorities on GM were overwhelming--even for MBs.

        It's true, the meek shall inherit the earth.

    • Supor:

      Frankly I couldn't care less about where MAllen is, but I do hope that Web is OK. I think this happened to him once before, somehow Yahoo erased all evidence that he existed for some reason. I'm sure it wasn't that he somehow broke Yahoo's rules of engagement, that wasn't him. Maybe it happened again and he just decided to "retire".
