You have a gambling addiction and it must be treated: you need PROFESSIONAL HELP!

  1. Problem gambling (ludomania) is an urge to gamble despite harmful negative consequences or a desire to stop. Problem gambling often is defined by whether harm is experienced by the gambler or others, rather than by the gambler's behavior.

    1. Preoccupation. The subject has frequent thoughts about gambling experiences, whether past, future, or fantasy.

    2. Tolerance. As with drug tolerance, the subject requires larger or more frequent wagers to experience the same "rush".

    3. Withdrawal. Restlessness or irritability associated with attempts to cease or reduce gambling.
    (Irritability includes rude replies to crgarcia posts of wisdom.)

    4. Escape. The subject gambles to improve mood or escape problems.
    (Daytraders were losers even before they started trading, they had no job, almost no savings, and no social-skills.)

    5. Chasing. The subject tries to win back gambling losses with more gambling.
    (like the revenge trade, or when traders blowup the last penny trying to recover previous losses.)

    6. Lying. The subject tries to hide the extent of his or her gambling by lying to family, friends, or therapists.
    (like lying on ET pretending you are profitable)

    7. Loss of control. The person has unsuccessfully attempted to reduce gambling.
    (Include refunding accounts to keep trading).

    8. Illegal acts. The person has broken the law in order to obtain gambling money or recover gambling losses. This may include acts of theft, embezzlement, fraud, or forgery.
    (including becoming a broker shill to get money.)

    9. Risked significant relationship. The person gambles despite risking or losing a relationship, job, or other significant opportunity.
    (daytraders have no wives, girlfriends and no social lifes, they stay on pajamas all day gambling.)

    10. Bailout. The person turns to family, friends, or another third party for financial assistance as a result of gambling.

    Admit you have a gambling addiction and get professional help ASAP.
  2. Perhaps if you were to grow a beard, dress in a toga, and wear a sandwich board...

    Any update on when the world is ending?
  3. What the hell is your problem? Everything you post nowadays is nothing but negativity and it's getting old.

    Let's get something straight right now. This is a site for TRADERS, not for people who don't want to trade or for people who blew up their account and are now pissed at the world. If your only perspective on trading is that it's not worth pursuing, then YOU ARE ON THE WRONG SITE.

    So please, do not continue posting these condescending threads, as they add ZERO value to this site.
  4. This kind of insulting only proves you have a gambling addiction.

    Of course I don't know when the world will end.
    But I know your (happy) life and your money came to an end long ago.

    Admit you have a problem and seek profesional counseling!

    Yet another who won't admit his addiction!

    True, this is a site for traders, not for addicted gamblers.
    I am a profitable trader (a wealthy long-term sentiment trader).
    Daytraders are nothing but gambling addicts.
    See the difference?
  5. You're projecting your failure onto others.
  6. garcia..you are the one,who need a professional help..psychiatric one
  7. ... Who need to mortgage his house to buy indexes during a recession( gambling )
  8. You're not a trader, you're a long-term investor. So again, you are on the wrong site. So to help you get started in the right direction, you are now banned. Enjoy Motley Fool's boards.

  9. AMEN! A good prune on this site you may get some of the active traders back on here.
  10. Bravo. Finally this idiot is banished. This is a great site for traders, both experienced and beginners. We don't need turds like that here. This is a good day.

    Now if only professional bootlicker Marketsurfer and his multiple personalities could suffer the same fate.

  11. Nice work, Baron...

  12. Actually it makes the site more humorous :D

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions it's a free world right !

    I give you kudo's for not deleting the post.

    Free speech is our first right.

  13. Nooooooooooo don't do that !

    It only makes things worse he will be back under a different username anyways.

    Let him have his say.
  14. Finally!

    Took way too long IMO...
  16. Enough already!!! This clown has had litttle to say that was any benefit to anybody...

    Just hope his ghost doesn't show up...

  17. I applaud you Baron.

    Free speech is one thing. But this crgarcia character has been posting accusations without proof, one-way assertions without debate, and pretending to be voices of absoluteness and authority. This is getting old.

    He has started no less than a dozen new threads in the past year along the same theme. Really a waste of bandwidth and storage space.
  18. If it does, same treatment.
  19. Of course, but if someone keeps repeating the same over and over again, without that being helpful to ANYONE, it clutters up the site and makes it less pleasant for everybody.

    Baron, thanks for banning this idiot, this is a good day.

  20. That simply breaks my heart

    Okay truth be known – I lied – it doesn’t

    Good riddance

  21. Real trading is most definitely not gambling. Most real traders won't initiate a trade unless the odds are heavily in their favor. In gambling, the odds are in the house's favor. Can't speak for others, but 97 to 98% of the work in my trades now is done by computer. So, unless you believe people get some sort of gambling rush from watching a computer mechanically execute trading code with very little human involvement, I can't see where your argument comes from.
  22. Sweet Jesus! I never thought I would get so excited by a dictator. You know, I'm going to have to re-think this whole dictator thing. Of course Baron is a very benevolent dictator. But let's face it guys, it took a dictator to get rid of this Crgarcia fool. :)
