With each passing day, another thread finds its way into the political forum, more ridiculous than the last. The views shared by a growing number of posters are more consistent with an aluminum-hatted militia group in, say, Montana, than what you would expect from a gaggle of so-called traders. This nonsense evidently creates activity in the forum and, no doubt, Baron is pleased. But I'm reminded of the flurry of activity in the financial markets with no regard to quality that eventually came back and bit people in the ass. (AIG, anyone?) Baron, I hope you are paying attention. For the longest time, it has been somewhat frustrating reading nonsensical posts with little or no basis in reality. And there is little if any communication or consideration going on in the exchanges. Rather, it is just posturing followed by more posturing, getting a little bit more outrageous each time. Presently, I am finding myself more embarrassed than frustrated at being associated with a site that is increasingly reaching "out there." And so, I'm wondering if it might be in the site's longer-term interest to not have a forum that soils the overall site, nothwithstanding the incremental activity to the site that such lunacy generates. True, some people will still hold bizarre and outrageous political views that seek expression, but must they necesarily have the luxury of dumping their toxicity here? Perhaps radical views and such radical posters would be better served elsewhere. This is, after all, a moderated site for trading-related matters. Any thoughts?
