No - I'm not the Kinko's manager but I have to agree that was some of the funniest sh-- I've ever seen.
I love the guys who can barely write in English and they keep switching their ID's. It's so funny. I really want to believe that nobody can be swayed by that and I think a lot of the work that many of us have done in exposing them has helped.
However, I do know that there are many quick traders and day traders who ARE influenced by message board activity on various levels and I do believe that there are paid bashers in highly volatile turn around companies.
My own experience, and I've done very well, playing it, indicates that these patterns are very repetitive.
The traditional wisdom, and what I believed 2 years ago, is that a message board can't influence price, that there are no MM games and that it's all fundamentals or TA. I'm heavily into studying and becoming an activist in many areas and I have contacts in both the private and public sector.
Some of the stuff that will happen over the next few years will be very interesting.
I'm noticing some big bids coming in on this one here <GGGGG>
Yea, I'm kicking myself for not taking advantage of the 40 cent swing yesterday and day before. But....Long term great company. Hey, you aren't by any chance the "kinkos_manager" are you. Funny stuff! It's funny how some people mess with the bashers. Get a good chuckle!
