  1. Us lesser mortals are indeed unworthy of your rantings All Knowing One.

    So how is your share price - you a strong buy yet? I'm keeping my powder dry...though you were nobody's bargain last time I looked...but I would have to research the growth potential before you got a place on my tip-sheet.

  2. I think you moved from 'things I don't care about' to 'things I don't like' somewhere there, but a sensible and sane list, for the most part.
