Thanks for the response. I think your assessment of me and my work (both the positive and negative) is spot on.
The reason I'm hard on Merrifield isn't that I don't believe that it's the right design point (I think it is and I will be buying a Merrifield device to test it), but I just worry that this whole damn game from the OEM perspective is "more coars" and "moar bits".
None of us knows the future, but collectively we can give ourselves the best odds by determining the potential set of outcomes and assigning the right probabilities to them :-)
Read that article. Did it bring to your attention some aspect of the financial situation/picture that you were not aware of? Or is it mostly about technical stuff?
I'm all for constructive criticism, but your characterization that I haven't done any real work to bring insight into what the future could hold seems a bit harsh. You're, of course, entitled to your opinion :-)
My, you've certainly got a mouth on you, I'll give you that. Pray tell, just what does a poster who claims he's got $500,000 in Intel while posting under an anonymous alias suffer from, exactly?
I don't pretend to have all of the answers, nor do I have a particularly large ego, but I do stand by the quality and the integrity of my work. It is genuine and accurately reflects my views of the current situation.
See, here's the difference between what I do and what you do. What I do is try to offer helpful articles to investors. I write pieces that explain complex concepts, I do competitive analyses, and I take time to interact with my readers even though such interaction results in very little (if any) incremental compensation for my time.
In short, I've built a following of thousands of people, many of whom can't wait to see my next article because, whether they agree with me or not, they like the arguments, facts, and analysis that I present.
Who, exactly, are you? You're an anonymous message board poster who literally spawned an entire alias to insult me. This means that you take time out of your day and you think about me and ways that you can insult me. I am flattered - truly! - but at the same time, I think you do the rest of the message board posters here a great disservice when you call to have me "ousted" from the board.
Just what useful contribution have you been able to offer your fellow shareholders? Think about it and then maybe you'll understand why I do not take you seriously.
Go try to do what I've done. Put your name out there. Help investors understand things better. Take the #$%$ that I do on a daily basis. Until then, you're just a pathetic individual whose only achievement in life is to have irritated me for a brief moment in time.
Truly pathetic, and truly indicative that you need to seek professional help.
Oh dear me...the anonymous message board poster who makes vicious personal attacks and even created an account used solely to insult me is repeating my advice back at him?
This further confirms my point: please seek professional help.
I am positive on NVDA. You know this. I have always written positively about NVDA.
But then the other day, I was alerted to a story on SemiAccurate about NVIDIA potentially exiting a business. I posted a link to the story, asked people what they thought could be going on (and gave my own views), and then of course, I was labeled an NVIDIA basher and a closet short.
Of course, I was also insulted to no end by just about every poster there. Everything from my intellect to my integrity. They are rabid and classless.
Well, it's sure a lot more useful to the vast majority of investors than your posts here on the Y! boards. The fact that you have an alias dedicated to hounding me is, as I've said before, flattering, but at the same time it does make me feel really sorry for you.
Please seek professional help.
Pretty pathetic that you started an alias dedicated to insulting me. I actually find it amusing...until I think of what a sad, pathetic person you must be to actually post the things you do.
Please seek professional help.
