Dear gentle ET readers: I have completed my in-depth assessment of the results of the statisticosociologicopsychodynamicogynecological experiment which I and my grossly underpaid graduate student assistants conducted at: http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=23517. Frankly, I was shocked. As of this publication date, there were 2012 views, but only 52 posts. Were those 2012-52=1960 passive viewers ignorant? Cowardly? Struck dumb by my brilliance? My faithful accolytes (and you know who you are, I do not wish to name you so that you might not suffer any further opprobium for your support of me) understood that on ET you can wrap a LOSING system in BS and it will be applauded, even traded, but if you wrap a WINNING system in BS everyone will merely scoff. This sobering (sadly) expererience led me to create an "ET POSTING DULLNESS METER". It is proprietary, related to taking the opposite side of your trades, but I will say that it factors in the number of posts by Harry, the puerile "kick me" posts by newbies, the posts by idiots who could do a one word Yahoo! search and answer their own inane questions, and the "I am the greatest trader since Gann" posts. Suffice it to say, as the cognoscenti have already surmised, today's postings pegged the meter. Therefore it is my solemn duty to rectumfy this situation, as a stern admonition to all of ET to keep it sharp, with this new thread. My dear friend the eminent psychotherapist and ECT mind destroyer Arthur (Art) Deco, M.D., has kindly agreed to answer all of your questions about ET, trading, and life in general, He is prepared to dialogue with you on any trenchant issues about ET, such as, "Why is Harry a frog?", "What is the kindest way to gently extract newbies' heads from their asses?", "What is the deep-seated psychological meaning of your least favorite poster's handle?", and "What do women want?". Please feel free to querry him without any fear of a judgemental or derogatory response. ET is, after all, an anonymous forum, with all of the disinhibition which that implies. The moderator, as he is a subtle soul, will no doubt resist the initial urge to remove this thread to ShitShat, as he realizes that satire is a long lost art which in the 18th century was responsible for the creation of the modern world through its parody of reactionary views and its embrace of new iconoclastic modes of thought. The present thread might very well lead us into the twentyfirst century of trading. I remain, as always, your friend, H. Plecostomus.
