I know some posters believe Liz is the greatest genius ever to visit a stock board. But enough is enough. Most of you probably don't care anything about personalities but when a poster acts as though she knows all and always replies in a condescending manner to anyone she disagrees with it's time to say enough is enough. I'm not against insults but at least know what you're talking about. Liz demonstrates ignorance on every topic from energy trusts to energy MPs. She constantly brags about her investing exploits none of which can be verified. I do know she bought Ect at 20 and rode it all the way down to 10.60.
I defy Liz or any of her defenders to refute the statements I have made.
"I defy Liz or any of her defenders to refute the statements I have made."
You have been refuted many times on several boards via direct quotes from investopedia and other sources to indicate your understanding on various topics was wrong. Your reaction is to state that investopedia is 'written by some guy' and therefore unreliable. You only believe what you make up yourself rather than actual sources definitions. Good example is your defintion of book value which is completely at odds with the accepted definition and despite several people providing references to prove you wrong, you refuse to believe it.
If I can learn to become a better investor and improve my returns, I'll learn from the Devil himself. I don't take anybody's word at the face value. I check and verify. In many statements on this and WHX board Liza was correct. Not nice, agreed, but this is irrelevant, I did not come to this board looking for hugs and kisses. I came here to learn from others. I learned from Liza and I am grateful for that. If you came to this board for hugs and kisses, you made a wrong decision. I don't care if Liza is making tons of money or quite the opposite. If anyone wants to talk about their own gains or losses, don't be surprised with the variety of reactions from other posters. I also don't care what Liza's personality is. If she got under your skin, it is because you let that happen by your own actions. So let's focus on the main topic which is to learn from one another to become better investors. If you have specific examples where Liza was wrong about energy trusts or energy MPs, state them. Repeat if needed. If my check and verify confirms that you are correct and I learn from you, I'll be grateful to you, too.
I agree with you 100%. Im not a professional investor but i learn a lot from reading peoples post who seem to know a hellva lot more than I. I just wish that some poster would keep to the facts about the stock at hand and share their experiences.
Unfortunately you completely miss the point. You can't name one thing you've learned from her because she is almost never right. I don't mind the insults IF you're right. Call me an idiot if I make a stupid statement. But first PROVE IT!! Liz is incapable of doing this. And so are you apparently.
