When someone on my message:
http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=16729094
can write:
http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=16731043 and get 16 rec's for it........I doubt it , that there are others, that think my insight is valuable!!!


But Janny, how many of those who gave the "recs" are actually successful traders. They're more likely people who just enjoy "diarrhea of the mouth." Some peopley think they are hot stuff and get a joy out of spouting off at the mouth--the others wish they could spout off so well and give a "rec." They don't care about successful trading. They just care about how eloquent someone appears to be.

If we didn't have people like this (who would buy just about any line of Bull-diddly), then many of the elected officials we've had in this country would never have been elected. They dish out the BS and others buy into it. (I'm guessing it is the same in Switzerland.)
