I may be in the minority - and if so, fair enough...

But does anyone really care what people (allegedly) make on here?

Every thread seems to become some sort of battle (between people who have never met) to outdo someone else over how much profit they have made...

Is it not possible to just have threads discussing the relevant matches?

As I say, I may be in the minority and if that is the case so be it - but I used to enjoy discussing how games were going, and now that appears to be secondary to who can post the biggest made up P+L.

i love it. The ego clashes on here are all part of the fun although I can understand why people find it distasteful.

More than happy to talk about the cricket most of the time though.

Always thought that chatnames should be in different coloured fonts relating to your total P&L, just a subtle way to show who might be worth listening too.

if people had to use their real names instead of a chatname they would be a lot more polite

Anyone who feels the need to boast about how much they (allegedly) make on here to validate their opinions is probably best ignored-which is what I do :-)
Report Lix November 23, 2009 4:43 PM GMT
RM- that's very noble of you but I like hearing the opinions and thoughts of anyone who makes money consistently on here. (judging who's lying and who's telling the truth is a different matter)

I'm on here to listen and learn . If you have to feed a few egos or get into fights to get some insight then so be it.

Also think some people's on-line persona's are probably quite different to how they really are.

lix - i shared your attitude and resisted blocking some of the egos because they actually offered some useful posts at times, but the sheer volume of their egotistical rants finally got to me and i've blocked the lot now. been a lot more fun reading the freds since then and bugger if i miss the odd titbit.

fine, think it may have been a little far . . . from now, if i am indeed on people minds in this issue, wont mention anything about figures

ill just talk about the match

is it ok to say who youre on? and who you think will win?
Report Green Beard November 23, 2009 5:04 PM GMT
will still argue the points with bogpop etc about mr lumpy etc, i think those battles are fine, as they are betting related, but egos come out in there i think

but no more figures, or aftertiming

GVL - Yo won't get to read this, but I can assure everyone, no matter how much profit you might like to think you have made, Trader PJ will be able to show a P & L with something yet higher.

Hopefully that settles everyone down.

In general I've found there's a link between how much time by a poster is spent talking about amounts and or current position (usually non inclusive of previous position indication ) and how much worth in the posting....it's not a positive link either..

I also the think the constant one upmanship style that many have has changed the goalposts a bit on what people do or don't post full stop...or in some cases lead to dubious p/l posting..

However it is what it is (the forum) and I still think there's some good humour, some interesting input and some worthy debate at times so whilst I wouldn't pretend to take it very seriously I still enjoy it and am probably as guilty as any of tailoring posts to the quality of the venue.

LLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTSSSSSSSSSSSS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agree 100% GB, some of the "discussions" are really interesting and definitely worthwhile - people like bigpop are very knowledgeable and love them or loathe them, do add to the forum.

What I (and it is only my opinion) don't think is interesting / informative / valuable is the constant postings of positions, amounts of bets etc.

Two faced?

how do you justify that . . . . am i nice but then type bad things about people behind their backs on different forums?

Lying

how do you justify that . . . im pretty open about my positions, i got shafted on davey v djoko, i did well on soderling nadal, i dont see a reason to lie on here

Egotistical

Not really, i dont actually have much of an ego, im fairly easy to goad into an argument though, and i defend myself if anything wrong is said . . . i do copy and paste positions and past calls, but im not doing that anymore, and yes i could see why it would annoy people. . . i also dont think im the best trader around, but im fairly happy about my strategy on here . . i actually have a list of about 15 things i need to change about my trading

**

well, youve never met me and i dont think ive ever been called that by anyone who knows me, so i dont think im much of a ** actually, and if you read my posts i very rarely actually attack anyone, its mostly defence from people who just write diatribe about me, but dont think i say anything derogatory about anyone


any other words you want to pick at random, string together and then post?
