You have to know that people just mirror your actions. Not everyone. Perhaps not even most people here. But some do. I won't name any names (because I forgot anyway), but one of the posts that got me over here in the first place was someone touting this board; and he said (more or less) that he does what you do.

I know you don't advise that. Quite the contrary. But it does happen, and I suspect more frequently than you realize.

I haven't followed your Fastly saga, so maybe the OP was talking out of his butt. I have no position in FSLY. However, others are buying and selling purely on your say-so. Which means people respect your opinion, but it also means they aren't thinking for themselves. They're stampeding wherever Saul goes.
