    You just don't get it.

    You too could buy
    AOL today, right now, at just about the same prices
    as I did. Whether I actually did it or not is
    irrelevant, you can tell whether it was a good idea or not by
    seeing what happens to AOL. Obviouslly, in hindsight,
    shorting TTI would have been a good idea. I however cannot
    go back in time and short it. This idea was not
    advanced by you as a good idea *before* it happened. So
    that information is useless, so why even mention it?

    I could have sold TTI and put it in DELL as you
    suggested at the time you came on this board. You made a
    prediction then that didn't work out.

    If you want
    people to take what you say seriously, you have to
    establish a track record that gives you credibility, by
    recommending actions *before* the events unfold.
