For those of you unfamiliar, here is a link to the infamous basher's handbook. It reveals the various methods of deceit and fraud that the bashers use to manipulate stocks, as we are seeing right here on the AGNC Board.
If you let on too much and he quits I won't have the pleasure of contemplating all the effort he goes through to keep creating these new accounts to no avail being that none of the messages ever get read. I'm fine with the current situation. Just put all the post with combative titles on ignore as soon as you open the message board. It takes all of 30 seconds. It has become automatic for me like brushing my teeth in the morning.
Most of the obnoxious post are one guy. I don't mind a bearish opinion when informative. However bullish post in a down trend or bearish post in an up trend that are clearly born out of stubborn inflexible thinking can get to be a little too much for my patience and sometimes it shows. What can I say. I don't like post that state something that should be backed by a fact and it is simply stated as if it should be taken at face value. There is way too much of that going on. And listening to someone praise themselves is just plain boring and makes the poster look like the have self esteem issues.
I personally would not purchase a Common stock that didn't have a bunch of bashers working the MB. As long as they bash I see smooth sailing but if they get quiet I often get nervous and sell. This is only for professional shorts . Someone like Bozo is very different,he is just a homeless Troll with a lot of time on his hands, no job , no money and no significant other . His only emotional outlet is this MB and his right fist:)
