  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Can Strong Housing Data Signal 'All Clear' For The U.S. Economy? [View article]
    The Yellen test is fun. Just asked four adults and two high school students. The closest answer I got was the high school senior with "It's an older lady..."

    Does speak to so much about the market.

  • Economic History Favors The Republicans In 2016 [View article]
    Thank you Thomas.

    Folks, while we strive to steer clear of politics on Seeking Alpha due to the quick and frequent descent into ad hominem rather than productive argument, we felt this analysis of the markets and their impact on elections is relevant to investors. Our hope is that you will enjoy the analysis and focus the discussion on that. Thanks, GBM

  • My Bet On Seeking Alpha's Future [View article]
    Having had the opportunity to watch Seeking Alpha from the outside and inside, I can only say thank you David. You laid the foundation of a service that has wholly disrupted the investment content landscape, and have inspired many to step into the fray. I'm excited and proud to be part of the team carrying your vision onward. On a personal level, I can honestly say I've benefited from every interaction, and I wish you all the best.

  • Thoughts On Twitter's Growth Problem, And Why It's Losing To Facebook [View article]
    David, one of the reasons I wanted to post this was to get comments from people on the very real signal-to-noise challenge faced by companies like Twitter and, as you note, SA.

    On Facebook, you're almost forced to curate your newsfeed by the two-sided 'friend' process, where Twitter follows are one-sided. This enables a higher signal rate, I think, because both parties are engaged (at least nominally). Yet even the most cautious Twitter curator can find themselves overwhelmed by one person they follow applying the engagement tricks you mention above.

    So my question is, how can a user more successfully curate their feed on sites that have one-sided engagement practices? And how can these sites support the effort?

  • Why IBM Might Be's Acquirer [View article]
    Nice recap Brian. On the face of it, I definitely agree this deal would seem a reasonable fit for IBM. One question: Dan Primack at Fortune notes that IBM only has $8.8 billion in cash on hand, so he isn't sure they're likely in a deal that will be around $50B. What weight do you put on that, and how they might be able to structure the deal?

  • Courier Corporation Will Be Acquired By Quad/Graphics - Should I Sell Now Or Wait? [View article]

    Emails are often used as supporting points in articles, and as he didn't give away any personal information, I don't see it as being inappropriate. It's rather common practice.

  • Courier Corporation Will Be Acquired By Quad/Graphics - Should I Sell Now Or Wait? [View article]
    Hi all,

    Thank you for commenting on this. A few editors discussed this article when it was submitted and we decided that Robert had a creative take on crowdsourcing, so we went ahead and published it.

    As so many of our authors comment on the incredible value our readers provide, I personally thought this was a unique and worthwhile effort from an established contributor. Now does that mean I'm right? Nope, but I will learn from the comments you all leave.

    Please continue to share your thoughts on this article, and as Larry notes, let me know when you disagree with any decision (letting me know when you agree is cool too) and we'll all get better together.

  • The Difficulties With A BlackBerry Partnership In China [View article]
    The intent was not to add controversy, it was to clarify, and the miss on that intent is why it's our policy not to change titles without consultation. So to answer your question, we aren't in the business of clickbait titles, but instead our policy is to publish titles that accurately represent the analysis.
