    Jim and Fan please go away


    If the truth hurts, just ignore it. However, it won't go away.

    Where are the other people who have posted remarks that made the company appear badly?
    They have all been attacked and are no longer posting haven't they?

    • Jim, forgive me if I've made you feel you are being attacked. Au contraire. A debate is just that, a chat. I really don't take much in here as serious, much less any more than opinion.
      Attacks to me are just an indication that one is incapable of real debate, or in fact ignorant of the real world. Words on a screen are just words. If you feel attacked, then it is your perception, or insecurity. I prefer to use my head in financial matters, not opinions of youngsters, or the uninformed. Without much of an education, I relied on common sense, and the word of the informed. After awhile some of that informed rubbed off. So after all these years, I know the difference between making money, "the bottom line," and one who worries about petty, irrelevant nonsense, such as winning a war of words. Altho I do not personnally know Fan and Wilson, and a few others, I do know success when I see it. I also know that both worked and are working toward more success. I have yet to hear either whine. I can see though, that despite the system they found a way to work around it. I believe it was lex, or something similar to that nick who posted here recently quite eloquently the same thing. Lex is not only eloquent, but well versed in common sense. I really regret your unhappiness and depression, but it is your row to hoe. Read that book Jim.

      • Still,

        You forgot to answer my questions in your last post.
        Where are the other people who have posted remarks that made the company appear badly?
        They have all been attacked and are no longer posting haven't they?

        Seriously, I really would appreciate your answering the following questions. I would really like to hear you answers:

        1) How many shareholders percentage wise do you think actually read the proxy material and the shareholder proposal and company reply?
        2) Of the above percentage what percent of them do you think knew that the figures were incorrect( if you prefer how many do you think knew it was just a typo)?

        From your posts you appear to have me figured as completely different from what I am. I could be the leader of the conversative movement. Never asked for anything from anyone and am not about to start. Just in case you're wondering for the above and a dollar or so you can still buy a Coca Cola at most places.

        With all the above being said this is the BBT message board so in the future I'm going to try to discuss BBT and not get into personal name calling, personal remarks and other things.
