I agree that the vast (ie, 99%) of posts on Yahoo are not worth my time. However, 1% of the posts are well thought out and argued and provide valuable insight. I try to sort the wheat from the chaff by simply reading the posts with a large number of recommendations-althought not a perfect system, it is better than reading 99 posts that consist primarily of name calling and/or unsupported claims. I also automatically discount anyone whose screen name is a variation on some obscene term. Anyone who would do that isn't worth my time.
Excuse my ignorance, but would paying someone to post be illegal? If it is, what are the odds of being caught. For example, naked shorting is improper, but it goes on because the benefit far outweighs the cost.
