Most people drive flashy cars, wear fancy clothes, or pop bottles in vegas for attention. There's a very special few though who prefer something much different. They are the yahoo finance message board keyboard warriors. So desperate for attention they will spend hours each day in the dim lit basement of their parents house, eyes glued to the computer screen, commenting and thumbs downing away for no reason other then to irritate the intellects who frequent the board to keep up to date on news relevant to their investments. With multiple screen names, and way too much free time, they can pose as multiple individuals to further gain attention and evade the greatest fear of being ignored. Although no one really likes them, they have been sort of accepted in the community as the feeble minded and as a result are considered a form of entertainment. In the end they get the attention they strive for and others get a good laugh, so it all works out well.
