    • DAG1996: I can relate ... best calls/articles consistently least read ... perhaps we should just write about APPL, FB, TWTR, etc. lol NOT!

    • Tom Shaughnessy: Very true DAG! Honestly I was so concentrated on $PPO I forgot to tag the widely read competitors.

    • DAG1996: You can probably edit and add them ... not sure. Personally, I usually I don't tag competitors unless I comment on them directly ...

    • Tom Shaughnessy: Same, thats why I didn't add them. ;), See what happens, for those who read they can make some $ shorting $PPO

    • DAG1996: draws pageview seeking claims from the clueless who don't bother to understand that PVs don't count on Pro articles before misleading others

    • Tom Shaughnessy: Exactly, this was not an SCI one. Hit and miss, as long as my readers get a good read I am happy.

    • DAG1996: Exactly. Can't focus on the trolls who need something to complain about, though sometimes it's hard since they're relentlessly vocal.
      12/8/13
    • Tom Shaughnessy: Yes, most of them are not worth commenting back on, So I just don't anymore. More foundational work, less pointless arguing.

    • DAG1996: Smart. I shouldn't ... just don't like leaving false info hanging out there for other readers to see without a chance to see the truth too.
      12/8/13
    • Tom Shaughnessy: They know its false, and then they await a response.
      12/8/13
    • DAG1996: Yes ... I'm not concerned with the trolls, but with the inexperienced readers who are inclined to read and believe their unsupported claims.
      12/8/13
    • DAG1996: SA readership spans all the way from top-level pros to beginners so I try to keep all in mind.

    • Perkins Cove: HEY....we "inexperienced readers" recognize trolls too. They suck....literally. Here's what to do....http://seekingalpha.com/p/1bs7k

    • Tom Shaughnessy: Agreed! In that case it is definitely worth responding.
      12/8/13
    • DAG1996: lol True. I wasn't saying all (relatively) inexperienced investors are inclined to read and believe trolls' unsupported claims.
      12/8/13
    • DAG1996: Plus I worded it poorly anyway ... I'm sure you have experience reading and, thus, are not an "inexperienced reader". lol

    • Perkins Cove: hmmm, DAG and Tom....two of the good guys. (file for future reference)

    • DAG1996: @Perkins, likewise thank you.
