    Okay, I don't get it. I signed up for Groupon and get crappy random spam. Is this a stock yet?

    I think this will be a great short. Business model is awful. I thought I"d get deals for stuff I was interested in.

    Linkedin should be a bigger short too. Terrible worthless site. I know its not possible to short an IPO but is it possible to buy puts?
  3. There are options on LinkedIN.
    Groupon is not a stock yet but the IPO is comming. Yes, long term it is a short but I long it will take before it goes under or how high is it going to go before sinking? Thoses are the questions and if you dont have an answer to that just forget about it, it might be 1999 again.

    based upon above remark you shouldn't be trading.
    use search.

    I maintain my short rating on Groupon even though I don't think they filed?

    I signed up for Groupon and unsubscribed when they kept spamming my inbox with stuff I didn't care about.

    Worse, Amazon has started sending me local offers that are actually pretty cool and someone else too.

    Both of these experiences has made me even more negative on Groupon's prospects.

    I'm, also, very negative on LinkedIN. It is a social network without any users. The only reason I'd ever pay them would be to contact someone to pitch a business plan. It isn't really a network.. so much as a gimmick.
  6. wtf are you talking about, linkedin is the facebook of the business world it's been widely used everywhere and has 100% market dominance.

    we all know groupon is shit already, what's your point

    get a grip...
