Thanks for the Barron's link. The arrogant noblesse oblige attitude of Mr. Abelson discredits him entirely. I'll quote the most offending passage:

We were relieved, let us hasten to add, not because we harbor any ill will toward the group. It's merely that we've been
yearning for an interlude of peace and serenity in the market. And there's manifestly not a prayer for one so long as the Internet
stocks are all the rage; IPOs double and triple in a day, and little old ladies in Dubuque sit in front of computers for hours on
end trading the online favorite of the moment.

Little wonder why we peasants are revolting. Thank God for the internet. It has freed us from the likes of him.
