I did not ask tham "I saw PZN has a 25% dividend, please tell me about PZN." I posed two very specific questions about the company after stating my own opinion and specific facts. In the time it took them to tell me "I am not going to give you an answer" they could have given me three answers to my questions.
Your questions were broad discussion and opinion types of questions that have been discussed here over and over again on here with everyone giving their opinion.
Are we supposed to all reiterate our views on them every time someone joins the board when they are already there for all newcomers to read!!
PZN is a very complex situation and you can't understand what's going on by asking such broad questions and getting someone to respond.
The two responders who offendede you, were giving you the BEST answers to your questions. Only you didn't recognize it.
If you stick around here and participate in the discussions on the same topics over and over again, see how you feel when someone new comes here and wants you to repeat it all over again, for just him, when the answers to his questions have been posted here at least a dozen times during the past month!
defenses. N_H_Y's response (to which this replies) brought to mind an incident that took place about a quarter of a century ago and involved a very talented and funny performer, the late Danny Kaye (b: David Kaminsky). It also brings a smile to the General's face.
The General had seen Mr. Kaye in one of his one-man concert performances, but this was a different kind of "concert" performance.
For those lurkers unfamiliar with Danny Kaye, towards the latter part of his career, which spanned almost every aspect of show business, Danny contributed his comedic talents to benefit the pension funds of numerous major (and minor) symphony orchestras throughout this country and he happened to be doing his "shtick" for the one near where the General and his family were living.
So he gathered the entire brood and went to see him. Knowing full well that he would probably be ridiculous, he made a pact (with himself) that he would NOT laugh at Kaye's antics. Of course, everyone else was free to do so if they found his stuff "funny."
So Kaye, as guest conductor (who, incidentally, can't read music. That was Sylvia Fine, his talented wife's forte) begins the evening's concert of well know classical and light classical works by explaining to the audience that he's always felt bad for the patrons who arrive late to a performance and thereby miss hearing the part of the concert that's already been played.
He's going to solve that problem, he tells the attendees, by stopping the orchestra right where they happen to be whenever a "latecomer" enters the concert hall and starting the entire concert from the very beginning (of course, at an accelerated tempo so that the the latecomer(s) can get brought up to speed quickly).
Now, the first couple of times he does this, we're talkin' replaying maybe the first 10 or 20 minutes of the program and, increasingly, the longer the concert continues, the faster the musicians have to play to "catch up."
When, after the intermission, someone enters "late," during the second half, Kaye asks the (embarassed) person if they were there for the first part of the program and just missed the beginning of the second half or if they've just now arrived. The patron (undoubtedly a shill) says they've just arrived, whereupon Kaye makes the orchestra (frantically) repeat the entire first half of the program at a tempo that would make the Flight of the Bumble Bee seem like a funeral dirge.
At this point the General had to throw in the towel and surrender.
Of course, if these postings were as "ephemeral" as the "sounds" from a theatre performance or a concert, the General imagines that a case could be made for having to repeat everything that's gone before to "newcomers."
