  • Yahoo Finance is a disgrace Shashi Seth.... 3 comments
    Feb 11, 2010 2:59 PM
    Yahoo's new VP of Search Products Shashi Seth (after less than a month in the job) is blowing his trumpet loud today to all and is singing the praises about how good Yahoo is doing 'this' and doing 'that'. [Yahoo: We can have it both ways] -

    My best advice to him (from one who has suffered at the hands of a well organised "pump and dump" group (and, clearly working out of or, in conjunction with Yahoo) is to clean up your Yahoo Finance message boards and quick !!!

    My blog here contains many a post on the number of "deleted" (yes, CENSORED) posts of mine, over on the LOOK board. I have clearly identified the culprit even. And he (himself) was once (and, may still be so?) a publisher client of Yahoo that had approached me to fraudulently click on Ads, to his own firefighter blog site. Mike is also a Web Marketer? And asked me to be a part of click fraud? Helloo? He's a wonderful person and he'll tell you so, too.

    Mutli talented, Mike who can contact his "mate" at Yahoo (again, he had told this to me, also) and get posts deleted that do not suit the side of the trade he (or, his "team") may happen to be on. He is having a picnic on Yahoo Finance, so much so that he can now feel safe enough to even flaunt his success.

    After having a number of my 'pro-company' posts removed again yesterday, he taunts another shareholder today, as such:

    (BTW Tex, where did your mentor/hero go?) :-) Re: DOUBLE BOTTOM (must read)

    Perhaps even Yahoo new man Shashi Seth can see through the following, with "Mike" (a known  multi aliased poster) clearly doing his usual fraudulent type operation, and in such a carefree manner.

    Mike's reply Shastri ...(Perhaps he is even your "official" moderator on the LOOK board?)

     

    "Look Who Crawled back from another banning"

     

    ....as long as you are not ramping this POS I did my job.

     

    Keep it personal and OFF LOOK and prospective "investors" can't get hurt by your ramper lies.

     

    For the brief time your current banning was enforced we heard from 2 more realists.

     

    The stock is toast, is the message.

     

    Your hype is nothing but hot air and you have been found out for what you are, a con man, thief and fraud.

    He really is a "nice" Person, as can be seen.

    Hi Mike .....

     

    You have posted, that:

     

    <...............you must be, and will be stopped.............>

     

    I would have thought that (both) you and your mate at Yahoo are doing a pretty good job of supressing my thoughts daily, as it is?

     

    As a Looksmart shareholder, does it annoy you (as a trader) to see my many thoughts posted, that much?

     

    Mike .... Why does Hillary Clinton get on the world stage and tell China they should not have CENSORSHIP and yet, it seems that you are able to have posts removed (almost daily), on the Yahoo Finance LOOK board, when they don't suit the side of the trade that you happen to be on?

     

    Hillary Clinton said (in her speech):

     

    seekingalpha.com/insta...

     

    "Now, in many respects, information has never been so free. There are more ways to spread more ideas to more people than at any moment in history. And even in authoritarian countries, information networks are helping people discover new facts and making governments more accountable"

     

    Yet you are able to have posts that 'spread more ideas' on the possibilities of Looksmart in the future, because you don't like the sentiment expressed within them?

     

    Isn't that exactly what China is doing, that your own Country's gracious former 1st Lady Hillary Clinton is referring to Mike?

     

    Feel free to reply. I certainly won't put any restrictions on you doing so.
