Prior to this message board being changed Arena was getting thousands of new posts per day. Some posts where positive and served to "Pump" it's stock. Some posts where negative and served to do the opposite. However, once the message board changed it was as if someone hit a light switch and instantly all of these Pumpers and Bashers posts stopped. This is clearly evidence that most of the posts on the previous message board where from "Paid Pumpers" and "Paid Basher" utilizing software to automatically post messages. As soon as yahoo made this change to their MB format it rendered these paid posters software obsolete and now they will have to manually post messages. Hence most of the posts that we were seeing and reply's to our own posts where from sophistacted A.I. chat bots who had a simple set of instructions to eithe talk positivly about arena or talk negativly about arena. Therefore, I would like to personall thank Yahoo for taking steps to put an end to this kind of stock manipulation through the utilization of their message boards.
As far as the future of Arena, it looks very positive to me for the long term. I do not trader for short term market fluctiations, which is what's going on with Arena's stock right now.
I can wade thru the bot comments, but no links ?? No ability to look at other comments by a particular poster you want to follow or check info from earlier post ?? This format has lost all its usefulness as far as I'm concerned and I'm looking for a good alternative. The only thing I do have to give Yahoo is that it was free ! For the timebeing anyway ....
