Come on boys, let's play nice! This is one of the best boards on Yahoo. No sense in getting involved in name calling and dumbing things down with name calling and personal grudges. Nobody has all the answers. We get some right and we get some wrong. If we all buy lots of MHR and hold it for five years like Slabman we'll all be rich!
Bill, when someone like oilman pretends to be a friend of the board and "beningnly" recommends that we sell, those of us with experience and knowledge do a diservice to not point out the B.S. The diservice is to naive investors who actually turn to these boards for their decisions, which is foolish in itself. Any of these boards, at best, provide some insight into companies and reflect the overall psychology of retail investors at a given point in time. I can deal with people being wrong or foolish and will never call them names- I can't accept intentional deception, as with oilman, and always reserve the right and self-imposed responsibility to point it out.
Congrats on MPET- I still hold all my shares there as well and pput some heavy hitters into this week- I don't know how much they bought or if they had much impact on the stock price, but they probably had some influence- I no of no pending news there- may be a fund, as you suggested, but merely buying for value.
