    These two users (possibly the same person)



    start a high number of threads with one or two sentence posts about trades, without providing additional analysis / thoughts on their positions, and subsequent risk management in the event that they are wrong.

    I wouldn't mind this type of posting in a (one-thread) journal, as I could choose to ignore the journal thread.

    However because they start so many threads, their posting style is similar to spam.

    I'll just did an IP search and they do not match up, but I'll dig deeper. Multiple thread creating can get annoying if they are posting journal type material. I appreciate the feedback.

  5. m22au: 0.61 posts per day.
    Joe: 0.64 posts per day.
    ForexForex: 0.66 posts per day, most are replies to other threads.
    mikeenday: 0.95 posts per day.

    What do you consider to be a "high number of threads" ? The stats above don't look high to me. Please provide a link to one of my threads were I don't provide "additional analysis, thoughts on my positions, and subsequent risk management in the event that they are wrong" - perhaps an older thread? I believe my recent threads include regular updates.

    Definition of SPAM:

    "Spam is flooding the Internet with many copies of the same message, in an attempt to force the message on people who would not otherwise choose to receive it. Most spam is commercial advertising, often for dubious products, get-rich-quick schemes, or quasi-legal services. Spam costs the sender very little to send -- most of the costs are paid for by the recipient or the carriers rather than by the sender."

    How is my posting style similar to spam?

    Upon reflection I concede that mikeenday has opened far more new threads than you.

    However, this thread that you started recently:

    is an indication of what I am talking about. Your first post contained nothing more than a report of a recent execution, without additional analysis or thoughts on the trade.

    Two other examples from April:

    Again in these threads you didn't provide much more than an execution report in the first post. Can you open a journal for all your individual trade ideas? That way everyone can follow your trades in one easy-to-find location.
  7. All those threads contained regular updates as the trades progressed from open to close.
