Sinister Goings On

I had decided not to post here again but I have to report the following.

I posted yesterday that there are those who contribute to these boards who appear unwilling to accept, without supporting evidence, that the 'Coaches' who enjoy free advertising here even trade never mind make a living from doing so.

Disturbingly that post has been deleted. It may not have been very interesting but what has happened to it is.

Would the moderator who removed it care to explain?

What on earth is going on?

What do these people have to hide?

Yes, I deleted it as you had posted the same thing twice.

I can see all of your 11 posts having a go at Naz and Mr. Charts. Why have they deleted one of them and not all of them?

Do you have anything else you can contribute to this website? It is starting to get a bit boring reading the same old stuff.

I do not know. Perhaps this one was too close to the truth

Hi,
Whilst I have some sympathy with the desire for completely open and above board posting - after all, you DO want to know if advice is unbiased or perhaps partly driven by commercial pressures - I think it might be an idea for members to apply commonsense to the question of whether you should pay attention to posts by Naz etc. I'm honestly not deliberately insulting anyone here, please excuse my social skills if they are lacking...
1 ) The coaches aren't posting here in disguise, they put up interesting (to many) content, and nobody should be getting 'suckered into' anything - if you like the coach's style and subsequently book a course with them that's your business, you know the guy is training for a living (and quite possibly trading for a living also).
2) You can always email a coach directly and ask 'do you trade' - ask for some trading history to satisfy yourself of their bona fides if you want... if the answer your receive is unsatisfactory you don't book to go on the course.
3) I consider it a fair swap - a bit of semi-advertising in exchange for a steady barrage of interesting material. As we all know those involved (unless saints) are counting on attracting a few extra b**s on seats it's hardly subterfuge!
4) The guy to complain about this is Sharky, if he considers those involved are overstepping the mark... when all's said and done you can read coach posts and not feel drawn to sign up for training... I've been doing it for years ;)
The people concerned are active members who draw others in - many hoping for a spot of free training no doubt - the most I would 'impose' on the people concerned is to ask them to add a Ps to all posts saying 'I'm a professional trainer by the way, so part of the reason I'm doing this is to attract customers'. I can't believe anyone here is totally unable to spot the connection between trainers, posts and course.
There does seem to be a bit of an air of 'burn the witch' about the board these days, as long as somebody declares their interest, in my view, or that interest is already blatantly obvious, I see no harm in it at all.

Well said DaveJB.

I hope potential m*gs will carefully heed your wise words before putting their b*ms on seats.

Not scanned for split infinitives.

Zenda,

I was a bad boy, I am not sure if I upset all the people some of the time or some of the people all of the time :).

We gave BB so many bad points as a reminder as to what can happen when a member goes off on one. :cheesy:
Just to make it absolutely clear above, I deleted level2's post as it was duplicated elsewhere. This is T2W policy, and duplicate postings are unneccesary. End of story. Should anyone wish to see a list of other duplicate postings ( many, many) that have been removed- tough, I don't have time. Most duplicate posters get banned. Some just make an acceptable mistake.

Is Level 2 on the level ? He seems to be one of those nasty tractor people referred to on another thread.

Try reading the post I've just made on the cool it thread.

You and others would command more respect if you took a leaf out of FTSE Beaters book.

You all had a wonderful opportunity to disagree/ challenge/discuss the clear points made by Dave JB yesterday
and show how you can articulate an argument - THE SILENCE HAS BEEN DEAFENING.

COME ON - CHALLENGE OR DISAGREE - DONT JUST USE CHEAP SNIDES THAT DO YOU NO SERVICE.

I think you have got the wrong end of the stick old boy.

I disagree with nobody, have problems with nobody and just enjoy a bit of a laugh in between trading.

I firmly believe that one of the necessary attributes of a trader is a good sense of humour and sometimes I just try to inject some much needed humour into some of the vitriolic threads on this website.

Loosen up and smile and you will trade much better.

I would have to sadly admit that to arbitrarily split an infinitive is, to my mind at least, almost as heinous a crime as to casually pen a sentence devoid of, correct " punctuation!
I genuinely don't intend to get at anyone here, we all have a huge amount in common and it's a shame to split over small points... the guys posting contribute a lot to the board, they are obviously doing a bit of advertising in the process but so what? Free ads are Sharky's problem, surely? Up to him to complain - from all I've heard them the courses in question are very good, and considering how many very bad "take the money and run" courses there are I think we ought to encourage people to take up the genuine opportunities that exist. I honestly and truly don't see there's any real subterfuge involved here - it's not as if they're posting appetisers and then suddenly pounce with "I do courses by the way..." - they're on the home page in glorious technicolour!
I've fulminated with the best of them, been there, done it... while we have so much in common (a desire for outlandish wealth and the personal charm that is so inextrcably linked) it seems a shame to fight with each other - what say we all head over to some Croquet lovers' BBS and give 'em some stick? (No pun intended)
