Talking The name of the game is changing, albeit slowly

The name of the game is changing, albeit slowly...

There is growing sense that you're no longer in the pursuit of that illusive
domain, stock or bond that wll 'fix' your financial situation, or will make you, how to say it - filthy rich.
As a matter of fact, the race for that MOST desirable domain may leave you poorer. The real shtick is what folks generations before us learned: diversify & get your house/portfolio in order. Optimize.

Re: The name of the game is changing, albeit slowly

The super fast racing yacht or indeed car or aeroplane is inherently very unstable.

Stability and diversification are generally two opposing concepts.

The answer is to go for glory when the golden opportunity is there, and then diversify when you run out of killer ideas, so at least you don't screw it all up.

For those that have dropped onto IDN, this is the time to focus. However, I would agree that once you have struck out diversification into a broader range or much less exiting assets make sense. You cannot get rich without taking on risk, or at least what is perceived by the rest of the World to be risky. Once you have made it that level of risk is almost certainly going to too high. But don't consolidate your dreams, consolidate your achievements.

Are you sure it is him again? I think he is DNL as well, and seems to have been behaving comparatively well.

Well at DNL, when we are sure, we will take the appropriate action.

What can you do here? He has probably landed in several different guises already since you last spoke.

Re: The name of the game is changing, albeit slowly

TonyP is ok. *If* he has behaved badly in the past, that's not the case recently, and thus we should give him a second chance.

He has bought many names from me at very reasonable good prices recently and the transactions had been fast and smooth.

We at DNL, have an admin tool on SMF to compare IPs and will take actions accordingly.

A second chance? :-) The guy has already been given like 10 chances.

Don't take my word for it. He will show his nasty nature again soon enough. He already blew his cover enough many times exactly because of this.

Re: The name of the game is changing, albeit slowly

Well, ultimately the only way to solve this is to charge $20 for all new members, so that creating multiple personalities is beyond the budget of your average moron.

I think it might be time for us to declare a general amnesty and unban everyone and start again, and let them see how they go.

I certainly don't want to censor opinions, and frankly I don't object to people having a crack at me, as long as they are prepare to back it up. Otherwise, expect it to be lofted into the grandstand.

Views and opinions?

This guy wasn't banned for attacking individuals. He was banned on multiple occasions because of racist remarks against jews, russians, arabs, etc.

Search the forum, it's all there.

He continues, and nobody react. He is probably russian or so with a lot of complexes. At least Gay, I assume.

You know that did not happen. You are again crossing that fine line here.

Well I have to agree with your sentiments, but the problem is how do you deal with it. We ban trouble makers and Mulligan stays on the case but it would seem there are no easy answers.

It seems somebody must have hacked this forum because Craig had sort of blocked new members from posting until approved if I remember. Of course that doesn't work very well if you then turn around and disappear. I am guessing somebody must have removed that setting.

Controlling this nonsense is real problem. To some degree you need to create a walled garden, but at the same time you don't want to keep out useful contributors and valuable ideas. Especially as both are in limited supply!

I thought it was a coincidence that such an unknown could come up with such a nice P&L site, then it clicked. It's you, and you know a lot about finance as you work at Forbes. Yes, I know who you are.

It sounds like the mounty has got his man!

Anonymity is most potent tool of these trouble makers.

Would the real Sci-Fi please step forward?

LOL, I wish. That is one of the few extremely valuable Finnish domains. The others being WI.FI and HI.FI. Even LO.FI isn't bad.
