Geez Arty I reckon I've read every one of your 3295 posts twice over and I still managed to spell your moniker wrong wacko.gif . Just shows how little I've retained. (Saddened to hear that you are crook.)

You'll be missed, nipper
I enjoyed reading your informative posts.
Well past retirement age myself, I know how you feel. And if I could do what you apparently are still up to and planning, I'd be so far out back that even a satellite phone would have trouble to pick me up. Alas, the blue asbestos took my breath away early, which explains my posting frequency slowing down.

All the best and heaps of fun in, hopefully, best of health and enjoyable company.

Yeah nip, drop us a line every now and then. I suspect many of the ss crowd are retirees so you too can treat us like a bit of a hobby.

Mate, ever since artie quietened down I've seen you as the resident mainstay of this place imo. Bigly grateful to you. smile.gif

Only a newbie Sharescene poster myself, but have enjoyed your input - so many thanks.

Congrats on your impending retirement and enjoy it to the fullest.

I recently migrated to SS from HC, after advising them to close my account. HC is a stock forum where unfortunately cheerleaders thrive and contrarian points of view do not. Cheerleader groups (every thread has a tight knit ramp team) TOU posts they don't approve of en masse. Moderators, who do not understand the stock and/or subject matter, simply act on the number of TOU's they receive and remove the posts the cheerleaders do not like.

Many great contrarian posters, with subject knowledge/qualifications, etc, have moved away from HC as a result. I think you will find many more posters migrating from HC to SS - they can keep the rampers.

One HC contrarian poster, Clark Kent, wrote this many years ago - I think it was at the time of CVI being ramped to the moon and back.

If you fit this model, below, you'll be a top poster on HC, with a heart, in next to no time. smile.gif

The 25 stages of a Hotcopper Fantasy stock
-----------------------------------------------------------

1. Dormant explorer quietly acquires exploration tenement in an unheard of part of the world
2. Intention to drill the 'hottest' commodity of the day is announced to the market
3. Investors undertake a quick geography lesson. Tenement located on Google Earth
4. Messianic posters appear extolling the virtues of this 'sure-fire-thing'.
5. Posters cram on Wikipedia. Regional geology and drilling techniques knowledgeably discussed
6. On location photo of company official appears (in safari suit)
7. Frequent company announcements, such as capital raisings, are greeted enthusiastically
8. Optimistic valuations by wannabe geologists/economists abound
9. Each powerpoint presentation adds $1 billion to the market capitalisation
10. Share price climbs precipitously
11. Stockmarket novices delight in referring to options as "oppies" and ordinary shares as "heads"
12. Mountains of previously 'scarce' scrip hits the market
13. Director sales are pathetically rationalised
14. Share price drops precipitously
15. Wannabe experts declare "buy the panic, oversold value play" (as bad a sign as any)
16. Numerous conspiracy theories regarding capping, profiling and price manipulation emerge
17. Share price chart resembles a "House with pointy roof and chimney"
18. Shareholders reluctantly espouse Long-Term-Buy-and-Hold investment
19. The once prolific "Messiah" suffers writer's block, and no longer responds to posts
20. Company announcements dry up and become more vague
21. Lots of acrimonious exchanges ensue on Hotcopper
22. The "Messiah" and his band of faithfuls move camp
23. Seek.com and Metlink web-sites experience a sharp increase in traffic
24. The "Messiah" attributes his blunder to dishonest reporting by company management

Happy retirement nipper.

All the best! Unfortunately I have succumbed somewhat to HC as this site appears sadly imo stale. As you say, it maybe better some went across there and whether or not I'm in that category, I find both sites helpful in wealth creation once you sort the good from the bad! You might find your interest will increase with retirement!! biggrin.gif
