Sorry but I have enough of this nonsense. Be for a moment reflexive and think not about Warren's actions or non-actions but about yours.

What you just replied to JohnCleven is what you always reply if criticized or asked "Why?", that as a shareholder you have the right to criticize Warren, that we can put you on ignore if we don't like it etc.

All true - and all distracting from and covering up your motive as nothing you ever said did answer why you continue to be a shareholder when all you are seeing are bad decisions, underperformance versus the S&P year after year, and now even "know" already that Warren does not swing.

All you do is continously telling us why one should NOT be a BRK shareholder. You never told us why you are one and, totally crazy according to you (see your year over year S&P comparisons) CONTINUE to be one.

Your right to criticize does not explain this illogical behaviour at all.

- Either you love to lose money and therefore continue to stay with BRK instead of the S&P
- or you are not a shareholder at all and post here only for fun, to provoke reactions like mine
- or provoke them because you are alone and in need of social interaction/communication
- or have another reason you did not tell --- or maybe even don't know yourself?

Your "I have the right... Ignore button" DEFENDS your posts. It does not EXPLAIN them. Can you see that?

What about for once stopping with these distractions and non-explanations and either telling us your real motives, or, if you don't know about such, thinking about why you are doing what you do?
