I think Craigakess is great and he isn’t abrasive to me. He use to pick on my views being so optimistic like I am. But he really is only bringing people back to reality most times and every once in a great while... he sneaks in his very own optimism. But don’t get fooled by it because he wants you to know that he is the boards reality checker. Not a full optimist but deep down his bark isn’t all that bad and I enjoy his views. He has seemed to give me a free pass on my posts but I know he is prepared with something to say if he feels the need. I respect him more than I respect most people here if the truth be known. I always read his posts. I can’t say that about everyone. There are a few people I gaze over and keep rolling. A few I have on ignore. I have a hard time reading someone’s posts that feels this is their personal email or something. Like they have to comment on every post they see. That gets you on the list of occasional reading of those posts.
We all add to this board in different ways and when things don’t look so good after a let down of some kind. You will always catch me finding the good in anything I can to alleviate the pain we all share in disappointment of whatever the disappointment of that moment is. It may rub some people a little wrong but I just say Whiskey Tango Foxtrot or WTF. (I have a shirt that has the long version printed on it also.) My shirt today says, “Not Today Satan” but most of my everyday attire is Classic Rock band shirts.
So what do we have to lose to see the best side of something that feels bad. You won’t see much negativity from me and I will usually challege someone who posts negative. That’s just me... this has been a great experience on this board and there are so many people I have come to know by how they post. This board is a great source of not just information but entertainment also. I have a favorite poster like some of you have too. My favorite poster tells stories while drinking wine. That’s some great entertainment. There are many posts I will not pass up. Almost all the longs have my attention and I will open all those posts. Not to say that new investors don’t get my attention.
Like a I said before... we all serve some purpose and together we help each other get by and gather information at the same time. That’s the incredible thing and the thing I enjoy the most. I have learned lots from all of you. Thank You!!!
