It's easy to tell posters intent by the following:
1) Look at their history and try to paint a picture of intent:
- Trashing people (People associated with the company, third party's, etc...).
- Constantly throwing phrases (good & bad) with no supporting reason or evidence.
- Cut and paste same messages that are intended to scare others over and over (from same and other stocks).
- Blatant lies.
As I always say, if you are going to use message boards to help as your dd, you must be careful and try to do dd on them as well. At the end of the day, it is your money not to theirs.
