ET is a valuable resource for many reasons, trading advice not being one of them. ET is useful chiefly as a barometer of trends in our indubitably dubious subculture. In this case of decreasing noobpidity. I submit as proof that: No new "Trade and Grow Rich!" books have been hawked here for months No noob has publicly fallen victim to Jack's siren song recently Most of my new threads are greeted by scornful stony silence or rudely raucous abuse Sponsor ads seem to assume that ETer's are not TOTALLY stupid The enduring popularity of Daily Hotties vice actual trading threads suggests that ET increasingly values pussy over money and has become the premier site on the web to come to for soft porn. Perhaps you can add more supporting observations. Of course there is the possibility that potential noobs are so smart about trading that they don't even become noobs.
