Hey K, whats up. You don’t know me, and I don’t know you, but I can tell you don’t like me, and fwiw, if you were to meet me in person you would like me even less . I do like _bob because at least he is honest. I don’t care that he insults the BP folks, I just don’t.
Trading is not about community, it is about the triumph of the individual, defeating personal shortcomings and weaknesses, and becoming profitable. No one can do this for anyone else, again it is not about community, there is no community. If I knew you were on my hub, it would make no difference to me, if you put yourself out there, your complete retirement, and you mortgaged your house, and you were on the side of a losing trade, and I was taking your liquidity, I would not hesitate. It’s nothing personal, it’s just business.
As far as strategy, there is none, I am not a marketer and never will be. I wander in and out of here and ET to cure boredom, that’s all. I tell some real life stories, I can give ideas and directions on how markets work, and maybe some interesting market structure and trading observations. With that being said, people still don’t listen, and it is funny to watch folks flail about, following one guru, or another, or the latest EA. Then they blow up, and oh well.
Now I understand that you are a community kind of guy, and obviously some of your self worth comes from whether people like you or not. That’s fine, everyone is different, again, I believe in the individual over the group. Do I go out of my way to cause people problems, no, but if I feel like it, when someone puts up a strategy, and I can disprove it by using tick data and T/S, I will.
There is far more damage done to people by the lying and scamming trading marketers here than _bob could ever do. Do I defend the use of profanity, no, or ragging on newbs, not so much but by the same token he was more often right than wrong.
This being said, the reality is, when you come into a forum, its like going to someones house, you are a guest, and if you are not able to show the proper decorum, well whatever._bob was not a decorum kind of person, does that mean he is a satanic pedophile, NO. But some folks around here act like he was.
You hate _bob like poison, ok fine, you don’t like me, fine, but please refrain from casting aspersions on my motives, again, you do not know me, so you really need to stop.
Also the Liber8 thing was a private joke between me and myself, if that gets your emotions in a tizzy then maybe you are not well suited for this business.
But then again, you might be a BP employee trolling me, and if so well played my friend well played, you got up early and beat the VIPER, if not, how bout you stay on your side of the fence and I will stay on mine? Unless of course you start to shill something or someone.
The Ever Killin Time VIPER
