    I would like to hear about people's experience with bashers on message boards. Especially on penny stocks. What kind of money do these people actually make? What about pumpers? Anyways, irritating little folk in my opinion. Curious to see what you all have to say about them.
  2. Pumpers and bashers are parasites in my opinion who have no confidence in their position, and therefore feel the need to go to the message boards to try to hype or scare people into moving the stock the way they want. During the bull market there were many stories of penny stock pump and dumpers who made killings, including some 16 year old kid who got caught. Since then, a lot of people have realized that commercial message boards (Yahoo in particular) are gathering places for a lot of amateurs and self important blowhards, and don't have as much weight.
