Why would you expect to find nice people on an internet forum? I've found anonymous posters in general to be the rudest people I deal with on a regular basis. I myself am rude on the internet. It's too easy.

For what it's worth, Opkl claims (credibly) that he was never bogus, got booted for something else (won't bother explaining). I believe it. For someone to create that persona and all of the accompanying opinions would go even beyond what Goo was capable of.

You talked to Opkl? Are you like that boy from "The Sixth Sense"?

Default Speaking of trolls..

...I had the great displeasure today of enduring another offering from our favorite hedge-fund advocate, "HSW". I've been led to believe that he might have been seen in Chicago, with "hsw" license plates? If so, you out there in Illinois have my sympathy.

Well, I try my best to be as cordial and helpful as possible. I just don't have it in my bones to mean and rude. UNLESS you tick me off beyond belief...and once you did, you'd know it was coming to ya!

Well, I hope he comes back if he's actually real, and maybe stand up for us south suburbanites... He was the only one I know about who didn't make it like we lived in the ghetto!
