Hi, Econ. Found your board from mention at HR's place.

As I approach 2 years at the Fool, how long have they been watching me? or you?
Good question! I saw the story too.

This kind of bothers me, I will get over it but it is a problem.

I say anyone trading and pumping penny stocks on Yahoo! deserves what they get.

Agreed. I suspect he must've been doing some pretty flagrant stuff, using lots of different ID's, strong correlation between touting/hyping and trading activity, etc.

But they have to watch, one would presume, anybody and everybody who posts anything anywhere, "just in case" he/she is doing the old pump and dump scheme.

I have nothing to hide, but sure don't like the Big Brother aspects of this.

Bottom line, the kid skated with a half a million in profits from his activities, even after giving back $280k. Must've been last year! lol
