There's no need for nastiness towards others on here. I guess whether they realize it or not most people playing the markets are under a degree of constant stress, and occasionally express it through being nasty and condescending to other people who have posted messages. It certainly doesn't contribute to the quality of Elite Trader when they do. I could go to Yahoo for that sort of thing. I've reluctantly found that the Ignore List feature is more useful than I would like it to be.
