I'm really, really getting sick of the spam. I think the owners of the board are being shortsighted in allowing this douchebag and his ego to spam constantly - I m quite confident that whatever advertising revenue they get from Tim directly as a sponsor they lose in lost traffic to people who see what a joke this site has degenerated to from Tim's contributions alone. It's actually getting to a point where it's very difficult to ignore. Tim has 2 threads on his DJ newswire review; the one he posted and oen someone else did, yet he religiously defends his book in both. It was probably another alias of his that posted the second review. This is getting out of hand. The concept behind the book is abusrd. The only way to make his lame story about getting conned out of $700,000 with illiquid securities (why Tim did something so stupid is beyond me) interesting would be if it had valuable life lessons... which Tim wants us to think is the selling point of the book... his humility. WHAT A JOKE! HE HAS NO HUMILITY! He's a SNAKE OIL SALESMAN! I honestly prefer stocktrad3r to Tim. Stocktrad3r is funny. He's not serious, he just likes to fuck with people who actually believe he believes the shit he says. It's annoying and he takes it too far, and you have to question the mentality of someone who would spend so much time writing as he does - though he does provoke a lot of entertaining replies, so I can see why he would be motivated to do that. But Tim... man... he's just too much. I'm posting this thread because I'm finding it hard to navigate ET without being spammed to death about Timmy's book and inevitably reading him defending/promoting it. This makes me want to come to the site less. I'm SURE others feel the same way. I believe ET loses pageviews, net-net, and that the revenue lost from people being disgruntled with the site and its acceptance of Tim's antics is not compensated for by whatever Tim pays. So I propose the following win-win situation to all (except the snake oil salesman douche). ET disallows Tim from spamming about his book or starting ANY new threads on it. Furthermore, any new threads relating to "An American Hedgefund" should get binned - ESPECIALLY if started by Timmay directly or by somoene with under 100 posts. In return for ET's administration doing this, they can enjoy more pageviews, higher revenue, and thus a higher quality of life. The ET viewers can can stop wasting their time having to de-promote Tim's bullshit. I'm quite sure that this is in everyone's best benefit, my suggestion, however before the admins make a decision, I think seeing the overwhelming support is necessary. So please vote: does ET's validation of Timmay's spam decrease or increase your desire to come to this site?
