    Yes. When spell checking becomes more important than content, when people have views regarding constitutional rights which cause them to be automatically lumped together with radicals, and senseless polls abound, one has to wonder if it's even worth viewing as entertainment.
     
  5. on second thought, watching 'stu' rub their noses in IT is not only entertaining but informative :D
     
  6. Only solution.. "Censor and Neuter"... don't want the dittoheads reproducing, you know.
     
  7. ET should create a verification system in which you are only allowed to post in the "Politics and Religion" Forum if you can prove that you are an active trader.

    Shouldn't be too difficult to send "jpegs" of a monthly or weekly statement to an ET moderator for verification.

    Actually, they should make such a "verification" standard operating procedure for anyone seeking membership.

    The reason that I suggest this is that I am convinced that some of the biggest posters in this Forum ( as well as on ET in general ) do not trade for a living, nor do they even TRADE period.

    They seem to be hell bent on simply making controversial posts and wasting people's time with idiocy and twisted logic. By and large, they have grandiose sense of self's and use ET to feed what little self-esteem that they have.

    Unfortunately, much of ET has become an Internet "playground" for people that have nothing better to do during market hours.

    The quality of content certainly pales from years ago . . .

    Sad, but true.

    You posted 38 times just on Friday (primarily in the P&R forum). You should look at yourself in the mirror hypocrite.
     
  9. Says the idiot that has posted 26 out of his first 33 posts since joining ET in the "Politics and Religion" Forum!

    I hate to break this to you buddy, but that's a batting average of .866 - - - nearly 9 out of 10 of your posts have come in this Forum. You've got me beat by a country mile. You are right up there with "NeoRio" and "AAA" and I'm nowhere near that kind of a percentage.

    You must not be very good at basic math, eh? :D

    And for what it's worth, I traded on Friday, and every day last week for that matter. Please feel free to show us all a "screen-shot" of your trading from last week, or do us all a big favor and shut your pie-hole, Mr. Hypocrite.
