What you are saying is to ramp with justification. That is what makes the reader contemplate the post and think...Hmmmm maybe there is a bit of truth in their comment. :) We all do it... creating interest in the stock we hold or are going to. Definately make your ramps more interesting and informative please folks. :)

Wysiwyg,

What I,m saying is tell the truth about your thoughts ! ;)

Not allowed
People are not allowed to say this stock will go up next week even if they are 100% sure and they have put their life savings on it.
Understandable I guess

Snakey, how can anyone be 100% sure that a stock will go up next week?

Good question Joe
But I was 100% sure that wmt was going to break 10 Cents So I did put my life savings on it $100K And I was right... How did I know ...Well I just did.
My gut knew...My head knew And I listened to both And put my money where my thoughts were...As you know it paid off.

Well I guess the only thing you can be 100% sure off on the stock market is that you cant be 100% sure of anything. But I knew it was going to happen :)

Snakey, I don't think anyone can really be 100% sure that a stock will go up next week. I think people are capable of convincing themselves of anything, especially if they have their life savings invested in a stock. ;) I suspect much of it is simply wishful thinking. Nothing wrong with that. I want my stocks to go up too but a hunch, tea leaves, or a crystal ball are not enough.

I get dozens of spam emails a day telling me some stock in the US is going up. Does that mean I should put my life savings on it? Of course not. If you are 100% convinced that a stock is going to go up next week then tell everyone the reasons why. If you are 100% convinced then there must be reasons why. That is all I have ever asked anyone to do. If you are bullish (or bearish) on a stock, tell us why. I don't care if it's fundamental or technical analysis, I just want to see some kind of analysis. Give everyone else something to research and respond to, something to generate some kind of useful discussion. That is all I have ever asked for and I don't think its too much to ask.

There are plenty of forums for rampers. I don't want this one to become one of them and I suspect most ASF members don't want this forum to go that way as well.

I think you are going to have to allow ramps here Joe, otherwise you'll get all those disabled people suing.

I took your attitude a while back and Joe knows that, it was hard for me to change my style while biting my tongue at times everything I said about XYZ turned out to be correct and made heaps of $$$$$ for me using as you said my gut feeling then I said its Joe's site and he is entitled to set conditions to use this site as I am when people enter my house e.g. no smoking ect there will be times I may slip up :( but I'm sure Joe will get to know most posters and give a friendly nudge ;)

cheers laurie

Hi Bob,

Although it is tempting sometimes I resist the temptation to ban arbitrarily. If anything I think I am a bit too soft. I always try to put myself in someone else's position and see things from their point of view. Sometimes it takes me far too long time to hit the ban button. It is always a last resort for me.

ramping can be blatant or disguised as information, unfortunatley newcomers will be affected as they do not know how to do their own research, but it is good that thsi site is attempting to address the issue.

It's important that newcomers familiarize themselves with ASF's code of conduct and posting guidelines. Having this Admin and anncts forum at the top of the page does help. It's often the deliberate miscreants whom we target and have trouble with. Innocents are often given adequate leeway.

Eitherway, thank you for your input Puter we always try not to affect genuine posters adversely.

Hi All,

Just thought i would bump this thread again for all to read, especially the new members.

Its quite funny, for a mods perspective, when things are going well the ramps start. When the market is poor, all the low content posters go back into their caves.

But anyway, a lot of low content posts have been coming up lately, especially with the recent CSG stocks boom/bubble. And from my perspective, it seems to be members with less than 50 posts (ie new members)


IF YOUR POSTS DO NOT ADD VALUE TO THE THREAD THEY WILL BE REMOVED


Please understand that these rules are in place to make sure ASF is an intellectual and educated community, rather than just meaningless one line posts.

Plus sticking to these rules makes it easier for all us mods who volunteer our time.

Any questions on the policy can be directed here provided they are of a general nature. User specific details can be answered via PM.

Regards

Prawn

IF YOUR POSTS DO NOT ADD VALUE TO THE THREAD THEY WILL BE REMOVED

I am bumping this back to the top just to reiterate what Prawn has said.

Threads on particular stocks are intended for relevant information, news and analysis on a particular stock. It is expected that any new post in a stock thread will add some value to it. So please, think before you post.

Posts in stock threads that are assessed as containing no or very low content, or are simply ramps, will be removed without notice.
