Good for Tex if she is a woman...I rather like being one. Not that I had a choice, I'm just saying.
Flood, I think you've got to calm down. Grammar or no, your assults also show certain character flaws employers strive to avoid in hiring, would you agree?

Holy crap.  I am glad I don't get caught up in these boards like I used to (way too busy these days).
Anyway...
WM, I can tell you that I did sign that exact agreement that ML MAY pursue reimbursement if there was a separation (sp?) of service FOR ANY REASON (fired, terminated, etc). 
I left in good standing and on good terms w/ML prior to my 2 years (recruited by a bank), did not solicit my ML clients, went to work for a bank as an FA, and their was NO issue of repayment. 
I'm sure like anything else it's a case by case and complex by complex issue...but I can tell you this.  If you are an ass, if you run your mouth about ML, if you try to take clients and go across the street to UBS, then I'd say yes they will probably go after you.
If you go about things on the up and up, want out or quit and go into something other than retail investment sales at a wirehouse (I'm at a bank now) I'd say your chances are slim that you'll have to deal with the repayment.
Anyway, why would anyone (not saying you do) want to go to UBS/MS/AGE/etc from ML with only 15MM under management?
ML, in my opinion is a very solid and very fair company to work for.  They expect a lot, but it is what it is.  I didn't leave because I was unhappy.  I still have friends there.  It's just a hell of a lot easier to build a financial services business when people are REQUIRED to help you.  That's why I am at a bank.

What difference does it make?  Have you found something I have said that you disagree with?
If so, state the disagreement.
I'll give you an easy one.  I believe that people who dont' capitlize the first word of a sentence are lazy.  If it's not sloth, then it would have to be either stupid or intentional.
Do people who intentionally portray themselves in such a fashion that another would consider them stupid actually be stupid?  In other words is it stupid to intentionally appear stupid?

Thank you very much for sharing your experience.  It was helpful.<?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
I no longer have any worries about the agreement.  I've signed it and will make sure that I make the most of this opportunity that Merrill Lynch has provided me.  With each passing day I become happier that I have decided to accept their offer.  I am excited for my first day in the office.
I wish I could kill this thread!

OK, accidental stupidity at 6:15.  That is not the same as intentionally looking stupid.
My point is that when a person goes out of their way to appear ridiculous it is difficult to take them serious.
In order to disagree with me you have to be willing to say that there is no damage done by intentionally doing things like typing entire messages in lower case, not putting periods at the end of sentences and so forth.
Is there an adult reason, a mature reason, to do that?  How much extra effort does it take to touch the shift key as you begin a sentence and the period key as you end one?
If you wouldn't do it yourself why are you more than eager to excuse others who do?

is this guy for real? (purposefully non-capitalized)
message boards are not formal documents......but a means for rapid and efficient exchange of information.   the abbreviations and punctuation that is common throughout computer based communications is derived from computer programming languages and etiquitte.  whereas crusty old peacocks like yourself (BEF) enjoy to go around and flash their 'vocabulary' and get hung up on what ultimately is a self mastabatory ego trip.  meanwhile REAL people who actually have a brain cell or two to rub together have long ago realized that function precedes form.  the only thing constant is change BEF and obviously your having a hard time getting it.  Too bad for you.
it would be nice of you though to avoid hijacking other peoples posts who really don't give a sh*t about what you think of their message board etiquitte.

It is nonsense to claim that the ridiculous use of all lower case and not punctuation is an outgrowth from programming.
What it is is an example of being lazy.  It does not take any extra effort, or time, to touch the shift key at the beginning of a sentence, or to end the sentence with a form of punctuation.
As I said, in order to disagree with me you must be of the opinion that intentionally appearing lazy, or perhaps stupid, is something worthwhile.
The people who are reading this forum are seeking to become informed about an adult business.
I am choosing to tell them that there is no upside to intentionally appearing to be lazy.
If a reader disagrees, if you think there is an upside to intentionally appearing to be lazy, please express your disagreement and let's talk about it.

There is no indication that Cummings knew any better, and he himself did not like to see his own name in lower case letters.
The man may well have been an illiterate who became "famous" because some sponsors of the arts decided to make the inarticulate fool famous.
In any case, no rule is proven by the exception.  Once or twice every century there is rain in Timbuktu--that does not mean Timbuktu is not arid.
I ask again.  If writing in lower case makes one appear to be lazy, or stupid, what is the upside of doing it?

It’s just my opinion and you can consider it worthless if you like, but I have to agree with him to the extend that writing without caps and the use common misspellings like “your” when “you’re” is correct, mark the writer in a light he probably would rather avoid. I wouldn’t turn into a grammar Nazi over it, but it doesn’t go unnoticed, either.

There are some things that I believe occur because the writer is actually thinking too deeply.  For example using an apostrophe to turn the word it into a possessive--"The team boarded it's bus and...." is wrong, but to somebody who is thinking it is second nature to insert an apostrophe into all possessive situations.
I also think the your and you're deal is often an accident--a classic typo rather than a sign of ignorance regarding the words.
But intentionally typing in lower case exhibts laziness, unless the person is prepared to admit that they didn't know better in which case it reveals world class stupidity.
It is also nonsensical to argue that one who exhibits bad habits in one situation does not exhibit bad habits in all situations.
Plus, even if they did, what's the upside of exhibiting bad habits in any situation?

why you would care is the continuing mystery-
but, your logic is flawed (again) - i say nothing about intentionally attempting to piss you off -- i was not capitalizing long before you commented-

the fact that you (virtually alone) seem to equate not capitalizing to strutting like a peacock, being lazy and having no self respect points to some troubling signals in your cognitive abilities (especially for a day-trader).
1. self respect is not earned or obvious by how one capitalizes or does not- nor is it displayed by kowtowing to crazy idiots (see France WWII)--
2. if not capitalizing to you is like some one strutting like a peacock- i can let you have that- it does not worry me nor effect my self respect an iota- now if you're thinking i should at least do it to earn your respect... well, i see no gain in that whatsoever--- that sort of respect (from me) must be earned (by you) and frankly your exhibition over general pettiness allows me to believe that you are no more worthy of it than any other boor i've met-
3. a Texas thing? a true texan would not be quibbling over such unimportance, nor would they need to question another true texans self-respect, knowing that that is never an issue in Texas!

Whatever.
The fact is that typing in lower case is considered incorrect.  If you were doing it because you did not know it would be sad, but excusable.
But you do know.  What you're doing is akin to refusing to stand during the national anthem, or talking with your mouth full, or picking your nose at a dinner table........the list is long.
All I am doing is asking where is the well spring of self loathing that causes you to strut around saying, "I know it's incorrect, but I don't care and have no intention of bothering to do what is correct."
How could you hate yourself so much that you have absolutely zero pride in what you present for others to see?
Why would you not want to make something as perfect as possible, instead of taking pride in the sloppiness?

I also have time.  As I indicated somewhere I maintain a trading account with Fidelity and am sitting in front of a computer much of the time.  I try to remind myself that a watched pot never boils but I cannot help myself.
So I have Fidelity Pro Trader up and I also have the Internet up.  When the market begins to bore me, which it normally does most of the time, I goof around with the Internet, buy and sell stuff on e-Bay and play around with message boards.
About a dozen weeks a year I travel with my best friend, my wife of nearly thirty six years.
It's a tough lifestyle,but somebody has to do it.

Look....I am by no means a slouch when it comes to my own grammar.  Never the less.....I think you miss the point that these types of communication (email, Instant Messenger, chat boards etc...) are all designed around maximum efficiency of communication and that the content is what is emphasized here, not the 'packaging'.  You obviously have time to edit your posts and others...most people here are anonymous (and busy unlike you) and therefore there is no 'real' image to protect anyway.  Your opinion really doesn't matter to any of us concerning your thoughts on our image.  I'm sure that when drafting business letters most everybody here does edit their work.
Look here's an analogy: When you have to split wood do you wear your best suit and tie?   No, you dress in appropriately 'dingy' but functional clothing.  You see, you are saying "Damn man, get yourself a suit and look respectable" and we're saying "Sh*t man, I'm splitting some friggin wood and drinkin' a beer here...chill out"

You also state that we should be listening to what you have to say because of your experience.  Well most of the posts I have read from you have been nothing but ego inflating and nit picky....whether you want to face it or not, you sound like an old, grumpy, bored man; not like someone who has pearls of wisdom to share.
I'm sure you have something of value to share, I'm just waiting to see it.  To you, many here may appear 'lazy', well to most here you appear like a complete unedited c*cksucker who is soo bored that you change your 'identity' and throw out rabbit terds instead of pearls.  Not something I want to pick up off the ground.

I understand that this is a casual environment, and typos and misspelllings occur accidently.
However, the refusal to capitalize and punctuate is intentional.
My point is what character flaw exists when somebody intentionally portrays themself as being either lazy or stupid?
Can you imagine yourself setting out to appear to be stupid?
If not, why are you willing to excuse it in others?

Appearances are in the eyes of the beholder.  Unlike you BEF I don't have that limitation (prejudice based on socially manufactured ideas of what 'laziness' or 'stupidity' is).  I am able to see the book for it's content not it's cover.  Some of the smartest most ambitious people I have met have lousy grammatical skills (some doctor's come to mind )..... I hope you're not that narrow BEF that you would suggest that all people who are relaxed about their punctuation are lazy and stupid.  Sh*t, sitting in front of a computer all day looking at the stock market and posting on chat boards (like you do) sounds waaaaaayyy more lazy and stupid than minor grammatical errors to me.  Shouldn't you be playing shuffle board or something?
**You see it's all in the eye of the beholder**
It doesn't appear lazy to me......it looks like a functional choice for those who may not care too much about how others percieve their 'imaginary' identity here.  If I really cared about what people thought of me here..why would I name myself 'Dude'?  Certainly not a term that connotes a professional who handles money for others.

My question is simple.  Do you think that there is an upside to announcing that you do not try to not appear to be lazy or stupid.
Mistakes are one thing, but intentionally portraying yourself as a lazy fool is something completely different.

BEF this is soooooo simple that I'm suprised that you're having a hard time getting it.
I try to focus on the things that TRULY matter and here on an anonymous chat board.....identity and packaging are not a part of that.  Exchange of information and debating issues relevant to my field of expertise is what is important.
You make too many assumptions which makes it impossible to have a balanced conversation with you. Example:

You are assuming that people are intentionally being 'lazy'.  Here's a thought for you....what if they (like me) don't see it as being lazy? 
You see in order for me to reply to your question, I must assume the same postition as you do (that improper punctuation and grammar is lazy) and from my perspective I'd rather not bend over and get it in the a*s like you.  Again I must reiterate that I do not see it as being lazy therefore we have no common grounds to discuss this issue as long as you insist I answer questions from your paradigm.

I think it's all about choosing your battles wisely.  Are you the best you can be at ALL things BEF?  I expect that you like most mere mortals make decisions every day about where they want to invest their limited energy and I'm sure that you like them have areas that you allow to be 'less than your best'.  Do you always put the toilet seat down and make sure that you never get any on the seat?  Do you make sure that all your dirt is swept and raked to perfection?  If I randomly visit your home will there be cookies and milk graciously awaiting to make me feel welcome?  Give me a break.

That is not my point of view at all.  I believe that intentionally using improper punctuation and grammar is lazy.
If you know better, yet do it anyway, what does that say about you?
How much effort do you suppose it takes to capitalize the first word of a sentence?
Do you suppose somebody who chooses to write in all lower case doesn't know better?
Or do you suppose they're doing it to be clever and "cool?"
Or do you suppose that they're doing it because they are simply too lazy to touch the shift key while they type?
Which of those reasons is acceptable in an adult's life?

Poor Dude.  He cannot respond to my question so he's going to move on.  Loser.
As for wasting my day.  Nope not at all, it was the third Friday of the month.
A month ago I sold ten Google combinations--Short the June 440 Put and the June 380 call for a total of $78,000.  Today Google closed at 390 and change.
I will have to buy 1,000 shares over the weekend for $440,000 and sell them for only $380,000 realizing a $60,000 short term loss.
But I have a $78,000 gain to offset it.  $18,000 per month is not all bad, even for an old fart with nothing else to do between trips to exotic destinations.
On Monday I'll sell a similar position for July for what looks like $77,000--not as attractive as it was a month ago, but not all bad.
Anyway I'll put those two legs down on Monday morning and then play message boards for a month while I wait for the time premium to come out of the options.

I am you're hero, I own you little Dude.

YOUR, not You're.  I said that that is a common problem because I do it all the time.
But if I was lazy like Dude I'd just ignore it--or even better I'd tell everybody that I know it's wrong and intented to make the mistake because being stupid is cool.

You're a fraud Put Trader.

You stutter Put Trader?  'Cause if you don't it looks really stupid to type a word twice, especially when correcting yourself.
Well, not quite.
Is this a proper sentence PutTrader?  Think hard.

Actually my name has no capitals, it is merely dude.  Please refer to me by my proper title.  I'm assuming you can read.
You are my hero PutTrader, right up there with the likes of Napoleon Dynamite and Pee Wee Herman.  Both humorously irrelevant, but they make me laugh anyway.  I admire those who can keep me laughing as long as you have PutTrader.  Keep it up.

Poor little dude, trying so hard.
The sentence is saying exactly what I was saying.  The second that is referring to the improper use of "Your" instead of "You're."
It is rarely a good idea to conclude that I made a mistake.  It does happen, but with the frequency of a lunar eclipse.
I could have typed that in all lower case, but it would have made me look stupid.

and we all know you'd rather look like a anal, nit-pickie, bloviating, boor than a stupid/lazy non-capitalizer.....

You just made the case for why we shouldn't listen to you.  Your just playin'........mostly with yourself.

dude-
insomuch as we indure the BS all month for anything tangible from this guy-- you probably shouldn't discourage advise/trading knowledge from boors like this when it does happen (once a lunar eclipse perhaps) --
we are here to share REAL advise/knowledge, and we all have to put up with 80% BS to get anything of real value-- (we probably put up w/ 95% BS w/ this jerk) -- when value does come, at least it allows you to relax the anger a bit and take it for what it's worth-
if this guy is the infamous Put Trader (before my time) it may be wise to listen to his Put Trading advise- it may well be all he is worth to many readers of this forum-

I know, I know, you know that the word is endure but you like to spell it that way.
And you know that Advise is the verb and Advice is the noun, but this is just a casual format and spell checker would have caught it anyway.  Or would it, after all if you spell the wrong word correctly does spell checker catch that?

Says all that needs to be said about old lazy men who sit around and "play message boards" all day.  Like sitting around playing video games all day......what a joke.  This is one immature geezer.
