Your "self control" rhetoric is clearly staring you right back in the face along with tamhas, b, rubberthinking, goofey.

Duma, you used to be a polite, reasonable, human being ten years ago. You yourself preached the same "self control" rhetoric to other posters.

You have now sadly become the very thing that you accuse others of becoming. You paint yourself as a moderate and everyone who disagrees as an extremist, and just say it over and over again, as if it makes it true.

When I read these two posts by Barry Ritholtz, it was as if he was directing his entire argument at you.
He was considering shutting down his comments section because of "The intellectually disingenuous rhetorical sleight of hand that has become a substitute for legitimate debate... I simply do not have the time nor the interest in correcting every half-truth and lie."

Neither do I. Why do I need to bother responding to "You took down the NPI so surely you plan on contributing something besides this thread????" Are your posts just someone dictating the things that you shout at yourself in the mirror? Enjoy your cognitive dissonance, my friend. It's all you've got left.

In any event, I've said my piece. I stand by my original post. Good luck investing.
