1  Economy / Speculation / rpietila Wall Observer--Financial Advice From The Mentally Ill on: January 14, 2015, 09:16:21 PM
TL;DR:
This d00d here after an involantary committment to a mental hospital, keeps a self-moderated thread where he doles out financial advice grooms and exploits vulnerable, economically naive victims1 and convinces them to hold the BTC which he himself accnowledges cashing out from.
Since the thread is self-moderated and I was asked not to post in it, I'm starting this one--without self-moderation, where I might reply.


1. An evangelising Christian woman currently experiencing family tensions due to re-buying BTC that her husband has sold.
BitChick now:

Bitcoiners want to get billionaires quick with their little scheme, call noobs that are trying to get out of the mess late "greedy".

It is no secret that I sold some at $675 in 2013. The next exit zone starts earliest at $3,000, probably higher.

It is no greed to sell at a bottom, it is just stupid. Stuff is as valuable as a year ago (or more, due to more adoption, etc.), yet 75% cheaper. This is a game and you are offered 4 times better odds than last time when you took them. Instead of taking them now, or holding, you decide to fold.

If anyone becomes a billionaire with bitcoin, he deserves it. So many chances of folding were offered but he held on.

There is voice of reason in the midst of so much babbling nonsense.  Thanks Risto.  Smiley  

I am having to argue a bit with BitchicksHusband a little about not folding right now though.   I guess it is hard not to get emotional.  We did have to sell some of our holdings in December but bought back a little last week.  I think the hardest thing to wrap my brain around is the fact that BTC should be so much more valuable with all of the infrastructure that has been put into place during 2014.  Why hasn't some of the money used to build this infrastructure been used to boost the price up a bit?  Aren't these companies at all concerned about BTC users getting disillusioned and leaving BTC completely?  

The extent of batshit craziness:

Simply pointing out that you are taking financial advice from a man recently released from a mental institution Smiley

Yes, and guess what? There is no law that compels me to mention it. I do it voluntarily, for my reasons. After going through this, and many other experiences, I know some things about how the world operates. People are able to learn it from my writings, but you can never learn very much if it is not verified by experience.

My dealings with the government started in 2005, by my reading of some conspiracist literature, which seemed to be alarmingly truthful when I compared it to the things I saw happening in the world. Already in 2008 I was so dangerous that an armed team of 8 guys was sent to my home at daybreak. Then came seizures and many court cases. Many perceive that Finland is a lawful country, with lawbreakers punished and law also granting rights to people. Well, miles of laws we have here, but if they are not expedient for the situation at hand, they can be broken by judges. I lost the recognition towards the judicial system after they too many times mistreated me, even against their own laws.

If I believed in my rights, I could have the hospitalization order re-examined, since the law requires me to be "dangerous to myself or others" for such procedure to take effect. Everyone knows that I have never hit another person, nor had a thought or word of hurting myself for over a decade. The only thing I am dangerous against, is the banking cartel. But I already know from experience that the judicial system is capable of straight-faced delivery of any verdict. So raising these matters in court does not help. Raising them here makes fools cry out: "look the guy's just come out from a nuthouse", but it's not the fools for whom I write, it is the wise - the people who understand things, and are here for learning, and contributing themselves.

If something in the above disqualifies me from being read, there's the "Ignore" button for that. Thank you.

In turn, I feel it a chore that your messages need to be "open"ed first before deletion, so please don't post. Thank you.

Important Reminder:

Forty-five earth years ago, you filthy carbon-cyclers have set your clumsy locomotion appendages on the surface of your moon.  Where you weren't invited and certainly didn't belong.

Forty-two of your years ago, We [I, Am, Is] put a stop to that mischief--you oxygen-suckers haven't left your Earth's orbit since.

Stay "home" where you belong, Humans--in your basements.

* Multiple numbers in this column correspond to multiple IPO trenches--first tranche, second tranche etc., etc.

** "Dividends paid" is the sum total of all dividends paid to date (6/25/2014).

*** "Profit" is calculated using this formula: ((highest bid)+(Dividends paid)-(Issue price)) / (Issue price) * 100.
This number represents
not calculated due to laziness and the inevitable bickering that's sure to ensue about the meaning of "profit."
Suffice it to say none of the securities listed could be called profitable with a straight face. One, thanks for the PM.

[1] In the case of ASICMINER, issue price represents the price at the time of initial listing on Havelock, not the IPO price.

[2] This [three-part offering] is not an investment but a ((zero sum)-fee) game.  The issuer is open and honest about this.

Do your research before doing business.

VMC doesn't bother refunding hardware reviewers.
The self-moderated VMC thread on this forum was started, and is astroturfed, by heavily-invested shills who are hoping to recoup some of their losses (shares currently trading at ~7% of the issue price).
The company is currently under investigation for securities fraud and has a pending civil lawsuit.

VMC minerVendor: Virtual Mining Corporation (VMC)
Product: Fast-Hash One Platinum Edition (1 TH/s)

Price including shipping: $6,479
Order date: 24th Nov, 2013
Anticipated shipping date: January 2014
Expected delay: 8 months
Status: Refund requested on 10th January

In the meantime I am still waiting for the third refund cheque from VMC to arrive, and hopefully this time it will be signed and properly filled in.

The fact that the previous two cheques weren’t, may be no coincidence after all.
