big difference between "investment mistake" and investment tragedy
even a 99.8% loss at 2-5% exposure isn't tragic.
however a 99.8% loss at 20-100% exposure which some longs had is tragic.
crooky had tragic exposure and handled it poorly.
a few IV longs also had tragic exposure and while it likely has caused them great distress, they handled themselves both more maturely and with far greater integrity.
well, i for one don't think you handled yourself maturely by your derogatory comments. it's one thing to point out flaws in the business and stock (which i agree completely with) and selectively rail against bad posters but you seem to harrass everyone long the stock.
it's a message board and you can do what you like of course. But if your goal is to get people to not buy the stock you would probably have better luck by attacking the company versus the personal attacks.
