You wrote, Ha! I've seen that movie. Even had a starring role. You're a frigging genius ... right up to that moment when the steamroller arrives. (Luckily I got the message before my account got totally flattened. It got squashed pretty bad, though.)

Around the end of the '90s I had a number of arguments with some fellow on TMF (or maybe it was on a Yahoo board) that couldn't spell and who may or may not have had English as his first language. He kept insisting that "we just didn't understand how to pick stocks" and that he did. That he was a genius at it in fact and was making a killing. He kept scoffing at us and our discussions.

After the tech bust, he quit posting. At least he disappeared from the forums I frequented.
