close it then.
you are a strong contributor here.
i strongly believe in harsh debate ( no name calling) .
quite frankly i have friends that actually are pit traders and yes we call each other all kinds of nasty words.
but in the end who cares man?
i want to be on the right side of the trade most of the times.
many many times i am on the wrong side though.
who is not?
i ain't no warren buffet , even though i am sure that he has been many times in the wrong side of the trade also.
I will jump in even though I don't post as much. This is a free Internet forum. Here are many people here with many different styles and personalities just like life. Some people are sensitive, some are not. There is no tone or para lingual cues here, which account for more than 80% of a communication message.
Unless its a direct attack, there is nothin wrong with being frustrated, and sometimes giving people a reality check. No one can tell me that you have never seen a really stupid or bad idea here. I doesn't mean the person is bad or stupid, but the idea is. They need to know it, maybe it will stop them acting on the stupid idea. I would appreciate someone telling me where the gaps are.
As for opinions, those are exactly that. This is life, not everyone is going to like what everyone else says. Generally, this is one of the most respectful and intelliegent boards I have been on. So we should be thankful for that AND he people who own the site.
Two things are required to get value from internet discussions:
thick skin and a duck's back
There is nothing personal about the internet. It is anonymous.
If you tnink someones responses are negative or sarcastic and this outweighs their usefulness, use the ignore function. I do.
