So while I was wrong about the stock price increase in this economy at least I have skin in the game. I don't have too or feel the need to lie about anything.
If people think they can get me to leave they can't, if you think you can get under my skin, you can't I will get under yours first and stay there. Like I said in my preious post if you want respect you better be willing to give it in return.
As far as my computer knowledge I do pretty well in that area.
Now maybe we can actually get back to talking about technology.
Actually, as usual you're spinning your comments to suit your agenda, and doing it quite badly. But hey, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt while everyone else is calling you out.
By all means skater, I welcome you to search any posting I've ever made since the beginning of time where I said I do not own AAPL, or even implied to the smallest degree that I do not own AAPL. You will find none, because there are none. What you will find are a few postings beginning with "As an AAPL owner...." and that's about it. You were quite upset at everyone's excitement during that time for some strange reason.
What you refer to as my "bragging", you're confusing perhaps with comments I made (along with many other AAPL owners at the time) about Apple's stock price going from the $170's, to $250's and higher is such a short time frame. Everyone was jumping up and down saying the same thing "My AAPL stock looks better every day". Is that bragging or sticking it in someone's face? I don't think so. That's called "excitement" for believing in a company, taking a financial risk, and being rewarded for taking that risk.
What you did was very well remembered. While we were enjoying AAPL's performance and dissecting the reasons behind it, you were quite vocal with how AAPL would "NEVER" reach $270, criticizing folks for their excitement during those depressing financial times and insulting people for not agreeing with you and your negative predictions which in the end resulted in you providing quite a good amount of colorful personal attacks.
Even with all your rhetoric and negativity back then and now, I kept my cool along with another well-respected forum member you were attacking. We all make mistakes and certainly none of us are perfect. However, the next time you decide to call someone a liar without even an shred of proof, all you're doing is behaving badly and proving to everyone that the only person not being truthful is you.
But I do agree with your last sentence. I'll stick with the subject of technology from this point forward by saying the same thing that began your path downhill: As an AAPL owner, I'm happy to hear that Apple is proving the critics wrong yet again by creating great products that consumers love and for once again having another blowout quarter during one of the most difficult economic times ever.
