What trading experience does one need to say that whining about lack of quality whilst calling a large percentage of the traders who visit the site gormless isn't going to help matters? The reason T2W is crap is because once you read what valuable information there is in the archives (and there is a decent amount), you're left with people asking how many millions of pounds they could make in the next two weeks if they started spreadbetting for half an hour a day, using someone else's system of eighteen different indicators in order to save them the trouble of any sort of thought or effort whatsoever. If it's not them, it's vendors, and if it's not vendors it's smug put-downs from people who think they have some divine right to be dismissive just because their dad plays golf with the mayor.

Every time I ask a genuine trading-related question, I get no replies (with the exception of everyonerich's unique brand of utter sh!te), but start a thread about planes on treadmills for a bit of fun and it turns into a 50-page saga. Yes, I can be a bit of a ****, but tbh the only thing T2W is good for is blowing off steam/leveling idiots.

from what i see ends up happening is guys get sick of it and end up opening their own sites. at the end of the day the only way something along the lines of a forum\ community without the junk is to go at it alone and control access.. but then again you would end up with less fun because these forums are full of crap makes them a highlight of the day.. i mean reading about someones 100% winner system that makes him a consistent 300% a month and he just happens to be selling it is entertaining

As has been said, at the moment, all the serious threads are eithered ignore or get a few decent posts then 10p per pip boy appears and puts everyone's back up with a smart ass comment and another thread is lost to the playground.

Ha no bee really, just a very, very slow day. Morning was good, then it just died, did the cash markets close early today and nobody told me...

if you are making money, and you post something to have someone post something that touches a sensitive spot. do you really care? unless you are trying to make a name for yourself

Gooseman, if this was meant for me, i was agreeing with you, I'm quite sure you not SBing, given the fact that I'm sure you deal in swaps etc (although i may have the wrong instrument but I'm sure it's not 10p cable!!!)
