The pumping anyone can notice on this board is that of the fabricated negative elements. One can argue that pumping could be interpreted as only being a force that tries to boost something, but I would like to use it here in a more suitable meaning of a force that is sustained, brute and primitive and applied in numbers. The upward or downward intention of its action is less relevant in this case. The longs here are honest people without a professional, fabricated agenda to influence the stock besides the stake they hold in it. They are much less active and biased in the way they post compared to the fabricated negative elements on this board and interact in a much more earnest way. The very fact they are long means they are not losing any money for now, as long as they don't sell (which they would be precluded from doing if they assess the potential of the company right and are truly in it for the long term). All that matters for real longs is the profit in the long term, when they will actually sell and take their profits. So no, we are not getting "despetate". ;).
