I noticed one poster mentioned this morning that he had not spent much time on the board recently because he grew weary of people attacking me and a few others who try to bring calm to the board..IT DON'T BOTHER ME.
But I want to share some thoughts with the serious people here on the board. 90% of the names we have seen over the past couple of weeks are new..never seen them before. Moreover the board is full of hateful, discouraging posts. Most of these people have been here all along and they don't own shares of the fund...but just like to pick at those of us who have made incredible gains in the fund.
My advice is put them on ignore..THEY HAVE NOTHING POSITIVE TO OFFER, YOU WILL NOT MISS ANYTHING WORTHWHILE BECAUSE ALL THEY WISH TO DO IS GROUSE AND GRIPE. It can affect your judgment and outlook however and facilitate making poor decisions.
A good starting place is to push the ignore button one all the negative responses to this post/Juan
awww I'm speechless. warm and fuzzy, sorry I have been away...had to give a statement to the police. I was a witness to a dumbestic dispute. Plz note: Mis-spelling done on purpose.
ah Mr. Texas? We talk almost everyday and he has been trying to find out about my work schedule for Christmas.
So not OT we have been working on a portfolio for his Roth that he wants to start soon. I disagree with him, but he wants to be conservative and I know he won't go for this fund. In which I think he should. Now would be the time to get in. I knew I should have waited, but I was afraid it was going to close. No regrets though.
glad you like his blog. thanks for checking him out.
Charles Wheelan, who wrote naked economics, pointed me in Greg Mankiw's direction.
Ah, now I know the commercial you're refering to. Yeah, that's bad.
WOW this guy Greg Mankiw is GOOD !
THANKS I will email the URL to some other friends
the NYT ad is so repulsive to me I have the remote at my fingertips at all times
I can't get her voice out of my head. She starts "There's the week , the week end and the weekender...." it is irritating just to write this . I need a drink!
don't know that ad, but i've had enough of that AARP card ad on CNBC, so I tend to mute once commercials come on.
check out the mankiw site, no need to check out my other posts, just mindless banter.
yeah, I may be out on the edge a bit,, still true though,, truth be told
I have to run to home depot now
the oven is doing well and my neighbor is dropping the wok off today.
so have to get crackin, need to get my Iphoto woikin so I can mail some pictures soon
It was a good article , I just wanted to say the NYT will always try to create a new
Do you see the NYT ad on CNBC and Bloomberg with that dweeby valley girl saying
"So the deal is ..... "
I don't keep any heavy objects in front of the TV because I will throw
it at her, and then that stressed out bag with the hair.... I want to ring both their necks.
I will check the greg mankiw thing but now I just realize how late it is and I have done nothing.. thanks, I have nor read any of your posts but will, just very busy and only paying attention to a few..
and for sea,, you are precious and in a class of your own and you have a cute dog too.
where is mr. Texas ? any news?

If you let what people say on a message board affect your buying/selling decisions, you might want to revisit your investment philisophy, or read up on some basic behaviorial finance. It all boils down to managing your own expectations and not being a lemming.
Actually, I think some of the negative posts are funny. The posts that don't talk about the fund, or investing are the ones that bother me. These should be shared via personal email, or on someones blog.
oh well, it's friday have a good weekend!
