There is a great spirit of charity and sharing abroad in the land of ET perhaps best exemplified by this thread: http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=141661 Its value is self-evident from the clear fact that its protagonists are protegees of ET, in the classical and French meaning of "protected". Protected largely from the apparently subversive dangers of criticism and outside commentary. But that is not my point. ET indeed provides a boon to the trading community by protecting the valuable method espoused therein. My point is to see if the excluded community of critics can learn something from that method absent willingness to engage in open dialogue. And dialogue, you may recall, is my forte. I practically invented it. You may also recall that in my day I taught that all knowledge is already known, but it is not remembered. I devised my Socratic method to dislodge knowledge from forgetfulness. It must have been powerful, because I was condemned to death for the unsalutary effects it had on the youth of Athens. So what we shall do here is apply the Socratic method of simple questioning to help us understand the referenced thread better by remembering what we already know. I shall commence after letting the objective soak in. I implore the usual suspects to refrain from flaming the participants in the referenced thread. Hemlock with be my suggested remedy.
