  • The Curious Case Of Canada [View article]
    I left Canada 10 years ago. It seems that the collective expresssion our national inferiority complex has devolved from self-deprecating humor to America hating. I preferred the former.

    Couldn't have picked a more volatile day to kick this off. Great show by anyone who picked up $GILD at $97.

    So true. So much incoherent debate resulting from people not recognizing this basic truth.

    BearCrusher/CallTheDoc...

    To reiterate, we allow and encourage counterpoints and diverse opinions. What you're doing, however, is dominating the comment stream.

    The comments on an article are primarily to allow readers to react to the article. You clearly reacted negatively, and that's welcome. But you seem to view your role as to threadsit and jump in immediately to counter anyone whose opinion differs from yours. In the real world, it's like the guy who won't let the teacher get on with his lesson, and insists on arguing with the teacher - and classmates who take the other side - on every sentence. It's not constructive and destroys the lesson.

    Your aim here may indeed be to destroy the lesson by dominating the discussion. But that's not what comments are here for. If you want to have your say in a more powerful way, please submit your own thesis on SSH.

    Good point. BearCrusher, you are entitled to your say. In fact, I think dissenting opinions strengthen the user experience, even if some users don't like them.

    But this is trolling. You are dominating the comment stream to an extent that damages rather than enhances the user experience (including mine).

    You are welcome to submit your own short thesis on SSH. And to comment, judiciously, on others' articles. But please cease with the trolling immediately.

    Is there not indeed fresher ARPU data available?

  • Twitter: Still Further To Fall [View article]
    @KoacNation, I don't know $TWTR's numbers well enough to have a bull/bear opinion on the stock, but I find your arguments unconvincing. Your case seems to be built on the fact that 1. the bull case is ridiculous - yet you only present strawman/bombastic bull arguments for the stock, 2. that it has yet to earn money.

    I imagine the strongest bull case for TWTR, and this would probably have been true for $FB a couple years ago and $GOOG many years before that, is that it has carved out a meaningful niche within which it has a big moat, and that over time it will get better at monetizing that niche.

    So to be a long-term TWTR bear, I think, you need to assert either that i) its niche will implode over time, or ii) it will never figure out monetization.

  • That's half-way to one million! [View instapost]
    Thanks for the suggestions Shane.

    I can't promise we'll implement either of them (#1 is a bit niche, and #2 is not niche but is also very complicated and isn't our top priority right now), but I'll make sure both suggestions are given consideration by our web team.
