    Pumpers now a very sophisticated force in spam

    It was not very long after Yahoo set up this site for this financial thread/blog site that spammers set to the task of flooding the topics list with spam more often than not of cheer leading to pump up stock for which they were paid to post. The methods are far more sophisticated now with the paid to write web service of "Seeking Alpha" writing what appears to be an investing news service, but in reality is focused to boost interest and encourage investment in a specific stock and to post on listings in that stocks sector. The funding and backing is from Benchmark Capital. It sure does look like a real and valid site. Great effort is made by it's webmaster to do just that. But the real validation is the end of the day stock ticker. Market trading has a far wider Spector of information gathering in place for decades before the Internet. But this is the 21st century and new forms of MIS information have come into play. Muliple sources have historically been the method of investors to gather information, and it remains. Spam has evolved into a much more sophisticated outlet

      All due respect, I don't see you having anything relevant to say about Sodastream. It's easy to bash the bashers and pumpers equally. But to offer something of relevance regarding the stock seems much harder. Muliple? There's a lot of insight I like to read from Motley and Seeking Alpha and IBD whether you like it or not. When you can offer better than let us know please.
