Now - also - whilst we are here. Let me address this "T2W won't change the rules because of 2 vendors"..
This is one of the problems that t2w really does need to address.

When CV, Barjon, Timsk, or Trader33 posts, we dont actually know if the opinion being expressed is a personal opinion, or t2w policy. Although most of them drink the t2w cool aid their personal opinions have been known to differ at times

What is relevant, is that a number of the people named above have commented that a vendor cess pit would be unfair to certain vendors, and IIRC your name was given as an example.

The problem is we dont know if this was "t2w's" opinion, or just a personally held view

Not knowing if you are tackling an individual, or a corporate representative is awkward at times.

The "some are more equal than others" policy has worked for years, but if you introduced clear distinctions such as a cess pit, I think it would cause discontent. For a start, every other vendor would question why they where being discriminated against. It happened with the badged / un-badged vendor thing. Applying positive discrimination is making a rod for their own back,

Plus - you have the guy that started this thread - who is all over the site saying that 'edges are everywhere' and how he's a big swinging d!ck, now admitting he rarely has up weeks.

He was on Jons thread being the expert on stat arb when on another thread he's saying how he'd just started reading up on it a few weeks earlier. He's saying my posts are nonsense?

And people like me are the problem? Fnck that - it's the dishonest people pretending they are something they aren't is the problem. Doesn't matter if they are vendors or not tbh.

Now - also - whilst we are here. Let me address this "T2W won't change the rules because of 2 vendors". I think that's me & Mr Charts or is it NVP? Fook knows.

For sure, I am one. Me being the one that always pisses off the mods.... ok then.... let's go there....

Can you guys explain something to me? You think that T2W has to implement rules of 5 words or less? Do you not think, with the powers of human intellect, that they could oust vendors but keep a couple of favourites if they wanted to? Do you think the ruleset they implemented would be beyond the wit of man?

If they wanted to oust some & not others, it could be done very easily, so purleeze - stop with all this '2 insider favourites'.

PS - Timsk, C_V - crate of Bolly on the way to both of you, Steve - I hope those Russian hookers hit the spot, Jon - I couldn't find seven felching dwarfes I'm afraid.

PPS - ChocolateDigestive - you've been on ignore for a number of days, I wont be able to read your reply but I love you too...
Once again more drivvle from the indicator salesman. I don't recollect ever having said I rarely had up weeks. I said I am green for the year. At least I trade, you sell indicators and pretend to trade. Lol. I was not on Jons thread proclaiming to be an expert I was merely correcting your 'intelligent nonsense' posts with my limited knowledge. Let's not forget that your opening gambit was 'why are spreads safer?'

toast - just admit you can't trade and your indicator is a sham. Feel free to disprove with a statement. Of course we will never see that! Lol

PS how many indicators have you sold this week? How is Joel? Vendor lulz

At this juncture, I think a quote from DBC Pierre is apt.

"Nicolah watched Blair brooding, balding, puckering like an anus, on command from middle-English genes, fusty, bile-sodden genes leering envy and fear."

There - killed 2 birds with one stone.

Should we close the thread on that high note?

Hi the hare,
I'm aware that this could, potentially, be an issue and, consequently, I try and make it clear whether I'm posting a personal comment or an official one. I'm sure there are a few posts where this isn't clear - but I'd like to think they are few and far between. If there are any specific posts you have in mind that you feel are ambiguous - just let me know and I'll clarify my position.
Tim.

To be fair Tim, you usually do via either the comment section or occasionally by PM. I just think there has to be a cleaner solution.

Timsk, is that your official opinion or your T2W opinion ?

Honestly people, Timsk is just an amiable fella doing a job. Don't over analyze everything he says, he is not a lawyer. Can we not shoot the sh!t? Be a little more light hearted? Appreciate the imperfection of things?

We are traders after all, not everything is black or white.

Even I am beginning to think my sense of humour isn't universal....

Do you not think the membership is a bit more savvy now?

I get flamed to sh!t for putting forward arguments as to why stuff like "pin bars" won't work when applied mechanically. Hell, this thread started because I questioned things. Someone got upset because I posted a totally rational (although some will agrue incorrect) argument as to why I think a lot of textbook TA is nonsense.

The old "Pin Bar" epic thread wouldn't have got half as far nowadays because people are a bit more savvy.
I'm not sure what you mean by "savvy". As far as I've seen, the regulars know a bit more, intermediate traders are still working on their method, and newbies come and go, some richer, some poorer.

Tbh, the same cycle always repeats itself, but with different members. I do my best at helping newbies not lose their $5k starting stake, though. I would like to think I helped a couple guys keep their shirt, at least.

DT, the spot was very much hit, thank you. I think I got the best deal of the three.

Hare, personal vs T2W opinion, I can see your point. I think it is pretty clear with mods, they are independent so I think by definition their opinions must be personal?

With the 'staff' I suppose the easiest way is to declare it but that will not be foolproof as I'm sure we'll forget from time to time.

I see where you are coming from, but I do think the fact that someone has an official position as a moderator tends to modify their behavior, and that they do have a tendency to accept a collective responsibility.

Lightening McQueen for example (an ex moderator) has made comments about enjoying the freedom to express opinions regarding certain vendors now that hes "on the other side". That kind of implies that quite understandably, there's something of an us and them culture. How can there not be ?

Only yesterday Counter Violent made a comment about giving up his moderator position should a particular ex member be reinstated, in order to participate in what might be described as "a full and frank exchange of views". It seams to me that he would NOT be comfortable engaging in that type of debate as a moderator.

I do think that occasionally views that are expressed publicly and privately do differ, but then again, that probably applies to all of us at one time or another.

Perhaps the solution is anonymous moderators. That way they can do their job but still participate without the baggage
