<<That actually was not what happened with me and CMGI; I bought the mothercuffer and sold it 7 or 8 times and everytime I did pocketed at least a grand, sometimes two or three -- but then the bottom fell out on what I was holding. I wasn't continually snakebit -- it was one big snake bite.>>

I loved that CMGI. Until it started tanking - then it was gone.

I think the stock market is a perfect place for an atheist - faith is the most expensive of all vices in the market.

Love 'em and leave 'em. XLA was a _GREAT_ stock - anyone who cries about losing money on the scam just didn't know how to trade.
