I know this a political rather than an investment board, but I happen to agree totally with this well-written Fool piece, advising folk to steer well clear of the Google launch.

Lots of good reasons to avoid Google

Tell us all why you think Google will be a good buy, Ray.

I'll renmind you of this exchange when the Google bubble bursts. As it will.
There were siren voices all the way up during the boom, and the investors piling into these Great Concepts looked down with scorn at the doomsayers.

And while we're at it ....who ordered the veal cutlet?
Who am I, again?

Now, lets see you put your money where your mouth is. Tell us when you put that short sell through and how much were you willing to risk. Good luck there, chap.

Trusting your stock advice is as good as trusting your opinions on Israel/Jews. As I saw the search result, it was kinda funny to bump into your Israel bashing tirades when putting "google" as the search criteria.


P.S. thanks Abe.
