You obviously are blind to how stupid and offensive you are to this board. You may not be the worst, but you are certainly up there. You think because your worthless rants were deleted that your freedom of speech has been somehow violated. It goes to show how ignorant you are.
Imagine some idiot trolling in a working class bar in Boston last year that the Red Sox wouldn't win the World Series. Then he's still trolling around the bar this year saying how right he was about last year. Then he starts mouthing off of how bad the Red Sox rotation is, or how they're awful with runners in scoring position, etc. After a while the bar would have to remove the guy because his life would be in jeopardy from the other patrons. A bar full of Southies wouldn't put up with it more than a few days.
You are lucky in that the Internet provides you with anonymity and the ability to come on here constantly, mindlessly repeating the same things. But what happens if the stock goes back up in the next year? What if AAPL goes back up to $700? You conveniently disappear and no one here has the chance to find you hound you constantly, telling you how right they are and how wrong you were. You certainly wouldn't come back to take it like a man. It's assymetrical and unfair.
In this light, your behavior can be rightly classified as offensive and abusive. This message board should be informative, and you provide little to no worthwhile information that the posters her aren't already aware of.
Oliver Wendell Holmes once said that freedom of speech does not mean shouting "Fire!" into a crowded theatre. Your posts here are even more worthless, equivalent to shouting "Fire!" after the theatre has already burned down.
Yahoo made the call in removing your posts. Now they need to work on sheepskinner and mikeylucky. Maybe eventually you will all get the point: you are not wanted here and are not influencing investment decisions in any way shape or from. You're the definition of losers.
I don't care how you slice it, you are part of the mob mentality on this board. I have every right to voice my opinion about AAPL and where I think its heading. My posts get purposely flagged as abuse no matter what they say. I could post "have a nice day" and it would be flagged. Yahoo made no such call as you claim to delete my posts. Yahoo automatically deleted my account due to the flagging. So the "flag callsthem's posts" campaign was a success. So take your baseball analogy and twist it however you want. The bottom line is that I was still censored by the likes of people like you cant stand an opinion that challenges a one track baggie mentality. If all of you had listened to me instead of persecuting me starting back in September, you would all be a lot richer today.
I am not sure if I should thumbs up or down. If I was in favor of censoring posters, you would not make it on my top ten list. There are plenty of posters who might deserve to be censored, but I find the ignore button works just fine for me.
Ignore button works fine for me as well. Except when it comes to the Anti Semite guy. He seems to have figured a way around that. As a reminder 'Calls Them' has not been banned. His thousands of older posts have been pulled from the board because Yahoo says he violated TOS.
Last, I checked, He is still allowed to speak his mind here.
Yep. Yahoo informed me that I had too many reports of abuse which violated TOS. It had nothing to do with the amount of posts which some have overblown. It all had to do with my opposing points of view which also, may add have been right. Lets not debate those who we disagree with, lets censor them!
Don't know whether to give this a thumbs up or thumbs down. I would say Yahoo deserves the thumbs up. Looks like the reporting everyone sent to them about you finally paid off for us. How embarrassing to have your posts deleted. Then again, I don't suppose that matters much to someone the likes of you.
Hats off to Yahoo !!! Bye , bye Calls_Them.
