Set forth below are the texts of two related comments that I recently put to the Goon Central board:
How much he values the board from which he is banned and how envious he is of the people that can post there.
I value the board immensely, GW. There is no dispute re that one.
I have publicly declared my intent to have the board added to my site as a sub-domain. I wouldn’t do that if I didn’t see great value in the board. It’s the top investing board on the internet today.
With me or someone I appoint making board administration decisions, we will be able to attract more people of integrity to the board and those who are there now and who possess integrity will feel free to post their honestzzz views.
Buy-and-Holders will of course be welcome to participate in all discussions.
Whether I am “envious” or not depends on how you use the word. I see the board as a very valuable resource. So I am certainly “envious” of those who are able to make use of that resource. That is obviously so.
But am I willing to sacrifice my personal integrity to obtain access to that learning experience? No way, no how. It’s not even a close call.
And I am not “envious” of those who have made the other call. I think they have made a huge mistake.
Will you be envious of me when I am handed the $500 million settlement check? I wouldn’t be gaining that check if I had agreed to post dishonestly, you know.
