Ron,

I don't see how CanadaRules or any other poster on this board should be disqualified from posting.

I started the link on Wi-LAN simply because I wanted know if others on this board were aware of the company and wanted to know what they thought. Apparently, someone on another Wi-LAN dedicated board noticed this post and commented on it on that board, and etc...

I'm not sorry I started the thread. I too am a buy and hold investor, and although I do not post much, I have been on the Fool for a couple of years now. Most of what I read is garbage - comments about splits, why did a stock go up or down on a particular day, etc. Most posts provide no new information or anything of merit whatsoever (much like this one ;-).

When I read garbage, I ignore it, just as you should. I don't care about those who cheerlead a particular stock either - they also provide no new information.

Discussion regarding the merits of a stock is good, as long as we all realize that we all have an agenda and are biased by owning a particular stock.

Finally, this board is not dedicated to any one stock and seemed like the best place to inquire regarding Wi-LAN. So far, I haven't learned anything new yet, since I do my DD before I ask questions (unlike many posters). I will be watching Wi-LAN closely. It does seem like they have a lead in technology, and some valuable patents.

I'll do my best to ignore the fact that it is a Canadian company ;-)
