I have always wanted to figure this one out. There are certain people that post chronically on the Yahoo message boards. They use a feedreader and sit by the computer 24 hours, day or night. They respond in real time on the boards. Most of the messages on the Yahoo boards never seem to be all that intelligent. I can tell that its not an older person or someone who has a lot of experience in the investment arena. Most of the messages seem to be from whackos or are intended to be malicious at times. Well, you know what I mean, I dont have to elaborate. Google on the other hand has a fairly well run message board. While it seems to be seldom used, the messages that exist on the board seem to be well worded and contain some intelligence. Im not sure what Google does or if its moderated. I dont see the abuse that seems to run wild on the Yahoo message board. I dont know how Yahoo sees their message board system as a well run operation. Its obvious that its being abused in many ways. Sometimes laws are violated on the yahoo message boards in both a civil and criminal manner. I am bullish on the stock of Yahoo, but it is these types of incidents that make me wonder where the operation is going. A reform of the Yahoo message board would definately be of some help to the ailing company. The question remains who are the Yahooligans. I guess my life is different then some other people. I have work and responsibilities that I tend to everyday. I am not by the computer all the time. I dont know how some people can sit by on a feedreader and reply in real time using vulgarity in every post. I just cant imagine the type of individual who would do such a thing or how they make their coin from day to day. This is one of those mysteries of life. . .
