    Will Close Near Session Highs

    We've heard this same claim over and over, and the stock can't seem to get above 1 and change.

    Great chance to double your money. Also a great chance to lose half of it overnight.

    gats...las vegas in a nutshell.

    • You're just the same old, recycled dribble, over and over and over. Go back to the CRACK HOUSE, I guess in your case that has a couple of meanings, but both accurate.

        Translation:

        Don't buy Ask Jeeves because Gatsby supposedly lives in a crack house, and anyone that lives in a crack house shouldn't be trusted for their investment advice.

        Description of Ad Hominem
        Translated from Latin to English, "Ad Hominem" means "against the man" or "against the person."

        An Ad Hominem is a general category of fallacies in which a claim or argument is rejected on the basis of some irrelevant fact about the author of or the person presenting the claim or argument. Typically, this fallacy involves two steps. First, an attack against the character of person making the claim, her circumstances, or her actions is made (or the character, circumstances, or actions of the person reporting the claim). Second, this attack is taken to be evidence against the claim or argument the person in question is making (or presenting). This type of "argument" has the following form:


        Person A makes claim X.
        Person B makes an attack on person A.
        Therefore A's claim is false.
        The reason why an Ad Hominem (of any kind) is a fallacy is that the character, circumstances, or actions of a person do not have a bearing on the truth or falsity of the claim being made (or the quality of the argument being made).

        Example of Ad Hominem

        Gatsby: "I believe this stock is a bad investment."
        thefactofthematteris: "Of course you would say that, you live in a crack house."
        Gatsby: "What about the arguments I gave to support my position?"
        thefactofthematteris: "Those don't count. Like I said, you live in a crack house, so nobody should believe you. Further, you are just a cocksucker fucko faggot, so I can't believe what you say."

        ------------------------

        Just be lucky I don't think ALL Jeeves supporters are this stupid. That would be a hasty generalization.
