Interesting topic. I have been dealing daily with these behaviors on this board. Take for instance the first encounter. I posted that the pattern when the stock was trading around $6. There was a clear pattern where the stock would retreat and then advance. Pumpettees started viewing this pattern as positive, when I commented on that this was a bad sign and that they are setting you up. This sums up exactly the behavior that this board demonstrated. Let's take a closer look at each one.
*Expects to be recognized as superior and special, without superior accomplishments
The stock moves up slightly and the pumpettees immediately crawl out from their holes and make comments. Few days later reality sets in.
• Expects constant attention, admiration and positive reinforcement from others
Well this goes without say here. Daily the same messages get re-echoed. The smallest of accomplishments get pointed out. 3am messages are answered within minutes of each other. Pumpettees spend more time bragging, then any research.
• Envies others and believes others envy him/her
The support group here is unbelieveable. Not one pumpettee has any concerns. Every issue has an excuse. They seem to post numerous times the same details over and over.
• Is preoccupied with thoughts and fantasies of great success, enormous attractiveness, power, intelligence
Preoccupied with fantasies of $9 values. This single number was mention at least 20 times in just one day. Pumpettees are totally occupied with success. Going so far to completely ignore any reality.
*Lacks the ability to empathize with the feelings or desires of others
Zero discussions on anyone view that differs from the hidden agenda of the collective here. When completely wrong pumpettees resort to a collection of excuses.
• Is arrogant in attitudes and behavior
Usually this surfaces when the stock gains some strength. They begin to mock, only soon to find themselves at a lower price.
• Has expectations of special treatment that are unrealistic
Most pumpers believe they own the board. I find most boards have a few posters who because of the hard knocks, believe they have the ONLY valid point. Even when they lost $300M in valuation.
