"Was her intent to deceive? That I can't speculate about yet."
Wow - this is new! Since when have you been reluctant to speculate? Your entire posting career is based on speculation - most of them proven wrong. What got you religion?
PM, it's time for you to seriously consider getting back into some inpatient treatment. Stupid questions about old computers? I fear you are becoming deranged.
"OK, I don't care who you are, that's funny"
Yeah, it seems that someone has kidnapped Cobra and replaced him with someone pretty clever. He's definitely on a roll lately!
"Actually, it was killing me that I couldn't see the beating that PM was undoubtedly getting from Wngr..."
I admit I enjoyed it too, but part of me has to feel some sympathy for poor ol' PM. I've noticed even Webby has the sense not to go toe to toe with Wngr - I can't imagine what possessed PM to think he had a snowball's chance. Remember, PM, the reason the story of David and Goliath is so memorable is because it's so implausible - and so rare. If there were even the slightest doubt, you've proven you ain't no David.
"If you need remedial reading, maybe this isn't the board for you."
Careful what you wish for there, Webby. Should that standard be enforced you'd lose most of your basher ilk.
"I'm sure there are other reasons too..."
A very nice explanation Wngr, but, of course, an incorrect one if I may speak for Webby. The correct answer he was looking for is "insiders are selling because they are finally realizing what Webby has known all along - this stock is a loser and they'd best get out while the gettin' is good".
There you go, Webby - saves you the trouble of responding to Wngr. You're quite welcome.
"You must drive people crazy with your convoluted, twisted use of the language."
Not to be argumentative, but I think it has more to do with his incredible stupidity.
"I disagree.Although Jeyes writing skills are not perfect, he has the upper hand on pee wee more times than not."
Agreed! That's why I said "might"!
"Chebster, haven't you ever heard the ancient Chinese saying, 'The enemy of my enemy is my friend'?"
Not so sure the military analogy works real well here. Were we to have an intellectual war of supporters vs. bashers, I'd say you might get past Jeye and then you'd be toast!
"So many people despise GM its not funny"
Wasn't it nice of fallen angel to finally take the bait? You must have been ready to explode!
"And BTW, I'm not making fun of your inadequate writing skills. I just copy and paste what you said."
Maybe not, but would you hire a consultant with PM's mastery of the language? Maybe if you needed consultation on which corner he should wear the sandwich board promoting your income tax service, but that would be about it.
I can see why you would welcome Mo to your basher ilk. He clearly has the requisite intellect. A selection of his recent posts: "lol", "Fart!" "Hi Turd!" (this was so clever it was worth posting three times!), "Piece of shiet".
At least he has a certain economy of language. Welcome to the Ilk, Mo!
" i trust you and i have better things to do than this..."
Apparently not. I invite anyone on this board to decipher this latest PM post. What the devil is he rambling about? I freely admit I have no idea. Shouldn't a consultant be able to communicate a little better than this?
Seriously, PM, this has gone on plenty long enough - what do you really do for a living?
"Apparently, WPP is a giant communications/marketing company"
Actually, they are the world's largest advertising agency. Oddly, someone very close to me interviewed with Satish Korde for this job prior to the LaNeve hiring. Team Detroit was the name created when Ford consolidated all of their external advertising and marketing with one company.
"So HE's the one responsible for making sure the Pace Car doesn't burst into flames. That explains a lot."
Good sleuthing, Webby!
Yep, he was supposed to ensure there were no kinked wires in the Pace Car light installation. As a result, Chevy has lost important sales opportunities for the new SS from highly intelligent people such as yourself who are justifiably worried about trunk fires in case they decide to install similar lights in their new SS trunk. Kind of a shame, really.
"These are just off the top of my head that are officers in their companies. I can get more if you like."
Not bad for top of the head! Nice to have you back, Wngr! Although slapping down PM and the recently resurrected MAllen isn't ordinarily all that impressive, whacking both back to back like this kind of is! Well done!
Here's one that might be more to PM's liking - Brent Dewar was recently named COO of NASCAR.
"...VOLT sales are dwindling and Tesla Model S is selling well."
They all sell about the same, don't they? Volt sold more in 2013 but well below the expectations of GM. Model S sold less than Volt but since expectations were much lower, it's a huge success. My opinion remains unchanged: unless and until there is a major breakthrough in battery technology that dramatically lowers costs and charging times, electric cars will remain a very small niche.
No, he does not. But, now that you've pointed out his error he will certainly apologize and pledge to be more careful in the future.
Yeah, that'll happen.
Analysts had predicted a 7.7% decline. As noted by RBC Capital "Retail and fleet sales were both down approximately -1.0% y/y. Fleet mix was 25.1%, flat y/y. Full-size pickup sales were down approximately -9% y/y. This is a bit weaker than F-Series up 0.4% and Chrysler’s RAM +26% y/y. However, GM noted that its retail share of light-duty pickup sales increased 200bps or more from January 2014. Inventory levels for all vehicles decreased to 87 days versus last month at 114 days. Current inventory stands at 806k."
Got that Webby? 87 days - down from 114! In one month! Why, it looks like you've been wrong again. Most people would be somewhat chastened by your consistent record of failure, but not you! You never let facts interfere with a good story.
