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?

PLEASE stop ruining this message board!!!
 
I wish I could kill this thread as well as many of the people who are responding with very off topic posts.   What is it about you guys that makes you want to fight with people you don't and will never know?  I feel that there will be no winner in this war so please stop.  I wish this was moderated and those who replied with off-topic posts were dealt with.
 
STOP IT!!!  GROW UP!!!  and most of all SHUT UP!!!

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.
Where am I wrong?  What am I missing?  Why should I want to make myself look stupid and lazy?
Teach me what I'm missing by thinking that we should always try to be the best we can.What about intentionally portraying yourself as an arrogant annoying old fool?Oh that's right, it's not portraying, you really are that way, aren't you?Sitting around all day watching your Fidelity ProTrader account?  So you've sucked enough from the corporate tit that you're actually retired?  As opposed to going to the office every day and doing nothing useful there?

Where is the self respect?  This is an industry that demands an abundance of it in order to succeed, yet you seem to take pride in having none at all.Put you have enough "self-respect" to make up for the rest of us....

Oh that's right, it's not portraying, you really are that way, aren't you?Those icon things are childish.  People who  use them are unsure of what they're saying so they insert one--like a bad sit com  uses a laugh track in case you didn't realize that what is happening is funny.

Tell us, Joe, how do you suppose a broker dealer would continue to exist without people to oversee what is going on?
Do you realize that if you were not a predestined failure, on your last gig out the door, you would have a better attitude about yourself and everybody else in the industry.
Not to worry, the "skills" you have will transfer well to your next career.  Practice saying, "Sir, may I recommend a new tie to go with that suit?"
Tell me Joe, which would you rather be doing?  Prospecting for a new account or drawing a pension equal to 60% of the highest three of your last five W-2s, while travelling with your wife and trading a Fidelity account when the mood strikes?
What will you be doing when you turn sixty?

He'll probably still be doing helpful, interesting, constuctive work, and enjoying the fulfillment that it brings. One thing he probably won't be is a doddering old fool trying to convince himself and others the he used to matter.
You know what they say..."There's no fool like an old fool".

You know what they say..."There's no fool like an old fool".Well said Starka.  Too, maybe I'll be squeezing in a few more rounds of golf each month, or maybe playing with the grandkinds.One thing  I WON'T be doing is posting on a bulletin board trying to convince everyone(including myself) how important I am.....

Let me see if I have this right.  Referring to me as having sucked the corporate tit is clever, but my referring to your learning to ask if your client would like a new tie is a "last-ditch-tactic?"
I'm still waiting for you to explain how any organization could exist without a management structure.  Does your hatred of those of us who did not fail at places like UBS color your perspective so much that you actually think that there is no need for anything but the least necessary part of a brokerage team, the retail broker?

What's the problem Joe?  You, like Starka, plan to work till you die because you're still trying gather your first $10 grand in savings and can't imagine ever being able to retire?

my mom is an english major and a complete failure in life and she gets as nuts about grammar as you do. its sad.(lower case and poor punctuation just for you) these boards are for good info. to people in the biz or getting in. this is not an english lit class. if he is lazy, who cares? if he doesnt use caps who cares? no one cares what you think about grammar, etc. your a great example of someone who "polishes brass on the titanic". write a book about how the email messages are destroying culture or tradition, but dont take away from people trying to gain knowledge about this industry. if your worried about lazy people..go round up drug addicts etc. and be their mentor. but get of the horse your riding on. i have noticed that people who are limited in intelligence or social skills worry the most about the smallest detail and unimportant specifics. you and my slacker mom can discuss the finer points of english grammar in the "disability" line.

Doesn't the above run-on sentence appear to be something welcoming to read?
Would anybody glance at it and think, "Boy, I can't wait to wade throught that.  With the lack of punctuation it will be a real joy to try to figure out if the author has an IQ of 65 or 85!"
You never get a second chance to make a first impression is so trite, but so true.
Where is the upside in intentionally appearing to be stupid?

Let's revisit this for a second.
Here we have a punk loser telling us that his own mother is a complete failure in life.
Let me tell you something, schidthead.  You're going to have to depend on your mother again and again throughout your life.
When you're thirty you're going to go to her and ask her to loan you some money so you can catch up on your mortgage.  She will make that loan because you're her son and she loves you.
When you're thirty two you're going to go to her and ask her to loan you some money so you can catch up on your mortgage.  She will point out that you didnt' repay the last loan, you'll give her some song and dance about how hard life is, and she will make that loan because you're her son and she loves you.
When you're thirty-four you're going to go to her and ask her for a loan to catch up on your mortage.  She will hesitate because she will be approaching her own retirement and will be worried about her own nest egg--but after thinking it over for a day or two she will write a check to your mortgage company and mail it to them herself.
When you're thirty-six you're going to go to her and ask her for a loan to catch up on your mortgage.  She will tell you that she cannot affor do keep giving you several thousand dollars at a time which you never repay.  You will call her a greedy loser and storm out of her house.
She will stand in the window and watch you leave, wondering if you'll ever come back.  Wondering if she really cares.
You know what?  You're mother is going to have a school teacher's pension with wonderful benefits.
You're going to have a resume that finds its way to the circular file because you are the loser, not her.

Note to self,  proofread what you write, and stop making the possessive brain lapse regarding you're and your.
Also have a cup of coffee before turning on your computer so early in the morning.

Described as only someone who has experienced it could.
Loser.  You shouldn't treat your mother that way.
