David fb,

One of the best quotes that I heard went something like this, "I think the chance of a bunch of small investors on a message board sending these stocks up like this is about as likely as a guy in a horned Viking helmet was responsible for the capital sacking."

His point was that there were more sophisticated groups behind both of these. I agree.

I was once the lead plaintiff in a couple of class action suits against a REIT called Captec Net Lease. There was a yahoo message board at the center of it all, BUT it was a hedge fund manager and professional real estate investor that got me linked up to the securities lawyer.
