Kudos to you.  You're good.  You win.  You are definitely the best troll that I've ever seen on a message board.  Your "Freedom Advocate" character is cracking me up.  I, for one, hope that you stick around for a while and keep humoring us.  This is a stressful profession and the laughs that you provide are a worthy diversion.

Surely you jest.  Don't feed the troll.  It craves attention to provide meaning to it's otherwise pathetic life.

*I will say again that I am not goforbroke.  But I have reviewed the past threads on here and am fully aware of how he/she was treated here.


*If you want to have an alias:  you must be good/consistent at telling lies. I learned from you.   As I said, there is an Army of One here on the site (e.g. the same person posing as several aliases: and thus, their other aliases might be the bully pups wannabes in training.)


I am not goforbroke but I am broke, if that helps you.  I have nothing to lose if the media knows my real name, how about you?


(Just remember your reputation is important; bashing/trashing and acting unprofessional on a "professional" site such as this one is a good way to tarnish your reputation....


...especially if the media has been alerted (and in fact, they have: no lies here: you received copies of the e-mails and confirmations.)


Call me pathetic ...but it ain't nice to have a closed society where you stifle free speech of others.  You people need to be taught a lesson... and maybe the media can do that.

The media?  I think they are a little busy right now...

May 10, 2007 7:39 am

I have the ultimate power! I will report you to the media! You should be worried.


I am an advocate for freedom of speech! As an advocate for free speech, I am running a campaign to silence those who disagree with me!


I'm not worried about disclosing who I am. Are you? You should be! Because I can easily find out who you are! And the media is very, very concerned with abuse on an online forum for stockbrokers!


Shaking in your boots, aren't you?

I couldn't have said it better myself, Fredom Advocate.


But you forgot to say this:


Cyber Bully Traits
Cyber Bullying is a compulsive need to displace aggression and is achieved by the expression of inadequacy
(social, personal, interpersonal, behavioural, and professional) by projection of that inadequacy onto others
through control and subjugation (criticism, exclusion, isolation,harassment, hatemail, slandering, threatening,
bashing in forums and groups, postings, the creation of websites regarding the person that cyber bullies are harassing, etc).



Cyber Bullies are primarily concerned with their own pleasure, they want power over others,
and are willing to use and abuse other people to get what they want. 
They are consistent with whatever type of abuse they specialize in, doing whatever it takes to humiliate,
embarass, and destory the person that they are bullying.
Cyber Bullying is obsessive and compulsive; they have to have someone to bully, they follow the person around
the internet, to see what the person is doing by reading the posts, then replying to the posts with cruel intentions.

Verbal bullies use words to hurt and humiliate their victims.
These bullies are not always easy to spot within the Internet World because as adults most of these people
have learned to be more subtle with their attacks.
It’s common for these bullies to make snide little remarks with posting in forums, private internet communities, networking groups, yahoo groups, google groups, msn groups, (the list goes on and on...)
 Mind you, these people are vicious!
Utilizing the internet to harm you, your family, your reputation, your business, and in some case your marriage.
This is when it becomes clear that they are really nasty people. 

These are not just Children doing the Cyber Bullying, there are numerous Adults
who feel the need to Cyber Bully, and utilize the Internet to do so, hiding behind a computer
and having their own members in their internet community to do the dirty work, so they are not held
responsible. 
Cyber Bullies are often very good at beguiling, confusing, and convincing others of the veracity of their lies.
They can be great at distorting peoples' perceptions with the intention of creating a negative view of their target in the minds
of people in the Internet Community.
This is achieved through undermining, the creation of doubts and suspicions and so on...
Cyber Bullies have an amazing ability to twist the words of others around.
They use this talent to avoid blame and make other people out to be the bad guy.
If you have never experienced this first-hand, it is nearly impossible to describe just how they manage to disorder
people's thinking with such patently illogical argument, or to even understand how their accomplices fall for it,
bad thing is the people they have convinced jump on the band wagon and then
 become bullies themselves, because they have fallen for the deciept of the person who started
the Cyber Bullying attacks and accusations.
They will even contradict facts, and if you have the nerve to disagree with them,
or try to straighten out their story, they'll accuse you of being confused, lying, or crazy.

Who do Cyber Bullies Target:
Usually there is some event that will trigger an attack by a cyber bully, 
they might just have taken an irrational dislike to you from your first meeting. 
Internet Competition, forming another community like one that they may have.
Copying: taking the work, words, photos from anothers website and using it as your own.
Having personal or family related issues with another spouse, who happens
to be in the same internet group as you.
Shill Bidding on auction sites, Not fullfilling orders on the auction sites.
A bad reputation is what Cyber Bullies love to attack. 
Cyber Bullies in the Adult world like to attack people who are not
able to take on a large internet community, therefor, the cyber bullies
use their own communities to make the attacks more effective,
in the hopes that person they are attacking will just disappear.
Bullies continue to bully because no one challenges them.
They have probably been like this since childhood, there is no excuse for any Adult who
feels the need to Cyber Bully.
The Cyber bullying they do as adults is wrong, and deep down  they know it is.
However, they're usually not smart enough to think of alternatives. 


Got the point?  Goooood!


Best Regards!

If you're smart enough, read your own comments and see if you can find the irony.  I now know this is a complete JOKE and will not respond to your stupidity and encourage others to let your DUMB comments die on the vine....now haul a$$!

May 11, 2007 12:16 pm

Oops...Jokes on me...I just noticed the exact spelling of the comment makers ID...nice work.

She's baaaaaaaaackkkkk

The poster Freedom Advocate is very entertaining!


From observation, here are the smartest posters on the site:


1. Bobby Hull


2. Allreit


3. Bond Guy


4. Freedom Advocate


Honorable Mention: Joe da Broker.



Don't forget, this is basically a dull and geeky profession. We need all the excitement we can get. A little intelligence does not hurt, either.


Go Bobby, go!

Another likely incarnation of goforbroke?

Either way, we have trolls all over the place. This board has really gone downhill.

 You contibute some good stuff here, but likely also give the term troll new meaning. " Control " is more like it. I find Bobby's viewpoint refreshing, in terms of what it takes to make it in the business. You seem to be the king of Joe's world political correctness. Just my opinion. You have to take some responsibility if the board languishes, but when there is meaningful content to be had, it seems to take care of itself. I really enjoy the good threads and just ignore the bs.

See, Joe?  Some of us got it and some of us don't.

You give new meaning to the word "control". I will say no more, at risk of being thrown off the board. Think about it


May 12, 2007 5:32 pm

Pratoman, you'll have to explain yourself. I did not include myself in the top intelligence list, and I may have to think about Joe's honorable mention.


I remember when we used to have to sell loaded mutual funds at 8.5% up front, or whatever. We still created a lot of wealth with those vehicles.


The political correctness I see is a certain snooty clubbiness, and it has nothing to do with being a good registered rep.


Here is something to think about - what really counts is the relationships you create, and how often you talk to your clients.


Touch your clients and their money more, and see how things like half the geeky stuff talked about here really matters.

I'm sure that this meant something while it was in your head, but by the time you hit the post button, the meaning had disappeared.

Come clean, Pratoman, you got excited but you should be so lucky as to be thrown off any discussion board. You don't have to be PC for us.
