Some people were very annoyed with IB, not for changing the rules which was not their fault, but for completely giving no kind of notification that the rules were going to be changed, or that they had been changed, or any explanation for their changing. It's very nice that def is here to respond to people's remarks, but while the rules were being changed in October there was no response to the many posts and questions on IB's own discussion forum from anyone at IB. I have been satisfied with IB, I have had no complaints, but I have to say that the changes in policy of this kind definitely deserve at the very least to be communicated to us in the e-mail Communique, if not in fact responded to on their own boards. There are a lot of IB customers here, but this is not IB's own board. Explanations to their own customers ought to take place first of all on their own boards. If some people got fed up with IB, not for the change of rules, but for refusing to give any explanation or notification of such a crucial change, that's to be expected, and that resentment is something they brought on themselves. Rather than tell someone who got annoyed with pretty good cause that he is a fool who has no business being in this business as a trader, they should face the fact that giving people cause to be annoyed is going to cause people to be annoyed. This is an important thing for IB to consider if they want to be in this business as a broker.
