Last night I couldn't sleep -- railroad construction outside -- so I was surfing around mindlessly and decided to re-explore Yahoo v. Google Finance sites. I was blown away....what is it about Yahoo Finance discussion boards that draws out the worst of people? For every 5 discussion threads that are useful and civil, there are 20 trolls, racists, political hacks, spammers, and tons of general a--holes who feel the need to insult every person participating in a serious community discussion thread about position X. Not being a frequent YHOO board person I don't know how long this has gone on, but I am just amazed at the level of total garbage that's there. An absolute cesspool. Are other such boards/forums just as bad? Anyone know *why* this is the case? Seems like Yahoo Finance boards are nothing more than a magnet for the dregs of the trading world or those who want to scam folks.....I really feel sorry for those who try to hold civilized talks about their particular stocks there.
