Sarasota is not a spammer and is a damn good trader. He has been tearing it up for a long time now, which I am guessing is even before he started talking to you. Also you have to be careful of who you get your info from because there are numerous posters on this board that sit at their "real job" claiming to be traders and come on to ET to purposely cause trouble. I am guessing it is because they are jealous they can't make any real money trading so it is easier to target the ones that are. There are plenty of real spammers on this board that are pretty blatant about it, yet I do not see many threads devoted to calling them out.
