it would be a mistake to shut this board down. The paradox of BRK is: the higher it goes, the less I can talk about it. This board is my outlet. If a friend asks what stocks I hold I say I have a "few shares" of BRK.and let it go at that. People outside the BRK community just don't understand. When you buy your first share it becomes a life-changing event. If this board goes down, and the new boards are no good, then I'll take the train into Union Station and meet you and Cowboy for lunch.
So if you are the first to use your name on the other board, you can trademark it. Ignoramus, do you have plans for enforcing your trademark/tradename, or are tm your initials? If you are providing notice of your tradename, register your tradename through the trademark office and you can change the (TM) symbol to (R) and prevent others from using a confusingly similar tradename.
Well said. Let me know when you're inside the beltway, we'll have a BRK east reunion (home of GEICO).
Iggy, sorry about the last post, I meant to comment on your MO comments, then began to respond to spyderweb(I didn't realize others had already discussed GDP growth). As to MO, don't forget Kraft/General Foods, Maxwellhouse,etc.. I don't have any MO, but it had a nice bounce yesterday. They could always pull a TCI multi-share deal or spinoff. Who knows what the guys in Richmond have in store.
