The problem is proliferation of threads when it is pretty apparent the OP (in this case) never spent any time making some effort to search for a relevant thread. It gets wearisome for the regulars to rinse and repeat on a regular basis.
The objective an OP should have for a new topic is to be considerate of others IF he/she wants someone to take the time for a genuine response. Not only that, what the heck does "doesn't look too pretty" even mean? What metrics don't look good to the OP and why?
Alta, I don't disagree that those who are regulars should first check if there is an existing and relevant thread.
But the OP in this case was new - 2 posts. He should have been given some slack instead of the unfriendly responses he/she received. He wasn't treated much better on his first post http://canadianmoneyforum.com/showth...=1#post1473257
Hope he is thick skinned enough to stay and learn the ropes.

We are beating this one to death and way off topic, but might as well thrash that out given how far we've strayed already.
As to the OP's first post you linked, that was a pretty good one...and agree the response was 'daffy'. But the post starting this thread looks like an F for effort and a further F for clarity of question. There was nothing to entice someone to respond in a respectful manner. Newbies to the forum (but not necessarily new to investing) should be making some effort to earn respect, no? We should expect better, no?
