The discussion boards offer a tremendous source of information especially to a starting investor who wishes to learn how to invest wisely. However, we urge every investor, new or experienced, to pay attention whom do they receive their advice from. The Internet’s anonymity allows for many people with ulterior motives to Bash and manipulate potential investors and stall the stock.
These corrupt individuals, malicious or, and even worse, compensated for their maliciousness by third parties, discredit the best information publicized by the companies, twist it and present ever more negative view of the companies. Investors themselves often fight online battles that cannot be won, due to the Bashers’ purpose to continue disrupt honest business activity. Multiple aliases of these people allow for their constant presence on the message boards, as they set out their exclamation marks and information/bias ratio of 1 to 9 to manipulate the public opinion and turn potential investors against the stock, destroying value, limiting the stock’s momentum, stalling the trade, and killing the dream of profit.
