Tim,

I find it funny that you're soliciting answers on how to see if a poster on these boards has integrity. How will you judge our integrity in our answers<g>???

Seriously, you have to figure on any stock board, there will be a general bias in favor of buying the stock. If you buy a stock solely base on recommendations of others here, without doing your own research, then you have only yourself to blame if you bought a bummer! Nobody knows the future, anyone can learn to read a chart of the past history of a stock. All you can do is try to understand how everything fits together and how the company you are considering fits in with your understanding.

Others can give you ideas about which stocks to check out and reasons why stock xxx should do extremely well or terribly. Only you can decide how much you buy in to the company. Don't trust anyone else to do your thinking for you, or you may as well invest in mutual funds...

Scott
