Hi all,

First day in the board and first post.
You people are a little meaner than some of the other boards I'm in. Tone it down a little bit, cause I'm an innocent. I bought some april puts yesterday morning
and so far, so good. I have been shorting and putting
for the last 4 mo.s and it has been very, very good to me. Hence my criticism of this article. Most, no, all
of the people I know who have been getting their hats handed to them say the same things over and over."I'm in it long term!" "Yea, I'm getting killed, but I can go to sleep and wake up in 10 years and I'll be amazed at how much money I've made!" My reply: "You are asleep!" The article makes it seem that one years worth of getting your brain beaten in is O.K. considering the gains you will make over the next nine. I firmly believe that alot of us are here because we want to keep our hand on the pulse of the companies we are investing in or against. If we spend enough time and energy in investing we understand that
1.) Analysts have ulterior motives.
2.) Three months is about all the head bashing I need to understand we're in a bear market.
3.) We would have to be asleep to miss the turn back to bullishness for an extended period of time.

I'm not sure why we keep seeing these articles, because they don't really make a lot of sense nowadays.
