For whattolearn and others wondering about the reaction that you've seen . . .
By and large, the people on this forum are those who have been successful already, to the point that they have stopped working years before the customary age, or plan to soon enough that they are making plans for that situation, and are thus on this site.
In general, they don't come here for investment ideas or advice -- they go elsewhere if they seek such.
Thanks for explaining, dory36. I do see threads here with folks asking about brokers and various financial instruments. So I'm here. Those who want to know how to prevent loss in the market will ask- they'll just have to wade through the posts of those who wish to prevent them from finding out... :

Re: LEARN- STOCKS & ONLINE TRADING

Hey WTL;

Looks to me like your "tag line" at the bottom is as blatant a sales pitch as possible..... although I am dissapointed at the lack of a free toaster in the offer.

You might also consider using the left area of the posting box (where people put various pictures) to post a picture of yourself. That way I can make sure to run, if I see you on the street.

Please take the hint (subtle or not) from the above posts and cease and desist. You have a better chance of scoring with a lottery ticket or a trifecta at the track, then here

WTL -

If you're serious about helping, here are 3 issues that I have with your approach -

1. "Those who want to know how to prevent loss in the market will ask"
But you never waited for someone to ask, you *solicited*

2. YOUR SUBJECT IS IN ALL CAPS
This is a standard warning sign of skullduggery

3. You have a solicitation in your signature.
I know, you don't think it is one. I think it is. So do others. Perception is Reality.

Re: LEARN- STOCKS & ONLINE TRADING

Notth, I would like to apologize for using your “NO!!!!!!!!!” earlier today w/out permission. Sorry. I have a present for you though:

Go out to the store and buy a box of Depends. XXL should be fine. Take one out and fold it into an origami hat—a large pirate origami hat. Staple the two corners together if you can’t do ‘value added’ origami. Buy a stencil set. Put “No Liberal Spin” on one side and “No Conservative/Bush Spin” on the other. You are now ready to put it on your head. I wear mine around the house and in front of the computer—but not when DW is around. Don’t tell her about this; it’s our little secret.

Now, when you get mad at something someone says, just spin the hat around so that the appropriate phrase is facing the annoyance. It keeps the big chunks out. If it gets bad, just pull the corners down tight and attach it to your ears. This covers your eyes too and keeps the smaller bits and stuff out. It’s tough to keep out the glow of the computer screen. It reflects under the edge into your eyes—unless you get XXXL.

I buy the cloth version because I’m a cheap skate. It can also be used if an asteroid visits earth, but don’t wear it on your head at that time.

Re: LEARN- STOCKS & ONLINE TRADING

Sorry Brewer but I have to chime.

whattolearn - Hopefully I won't have to read any more of your lame ass investment analysis. Again maybe you should post on a forum full of idiots. Piss off.

I've found it works much better if you line it with tinfoil....

Re: LEARN- STOCKS & ONLINE TRADING

Sorry I dont get the bit about the depends. Must be too highbrow for my own self.

The tag line sounds like it belongs in "how to make money with no work and no brains".

Re: LEARN- STOCKS & ONLINE TRADING

Dory - you should let us know the next time you let one of these in..."I talked to one of the mods" sounded like a fib. Are you gonna change your name to "One Of The Mods"? After all, there Can Be Only One!

Did you warn him in advance or was this your idea of a good time, let this in and then watch the ruckus?
