No one should have any illusions. There are "handlers" out there. I posted on a board where the CEO (Brian Bonar) had a record a mile long of crooked operations and pump and dumps.
I was contacted by a certain poster who had never posted on that boar but promised retaliation for my posts on "my plays".
The problem is - I don't "play" I invest for real.
Some people just don't understand that concept.
