When I joined T2W it was a good place to learn.

True enough but the mods' job becomes infinitely harder imho when useful experienced posters get bored some days and just go off on one. It's a no brainer to ban a troll who never adds a scrap of value, but doing it with a longer standing member who's just mucking about 'for the lulz' when bored can be self defeating if they don't come back.

Flipside of course being if you don't dispense justice in something approaching an even handed fashion you get people crying favouritism. That's one of the reasons I have never felt the inclination to be a mod. I think they get put in a no win situation at times. So the work they do do is appreciated.

Most regular posters do come back though IME, the temporary bans being useful in that regard. Also remember that Groucho was right in saying "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member."

Sure you get dynamics between certain posters and mods - that's normal but the level of trolling is reaching epic proportions.

Makes me lol that Mr Charts has me on his ignore list.
Arabian you say Mr C deserves more respect that Aaron so does that mean if we start flogging our systems for you to pay us your cash everyday, posting threads that leave unanswered questions to his method so people feel they have to go on the course to find out.

I still get messages from the time i made the 'Holy Grail' post asking for them to pay for my system.... I'm respectful enough to tell them its a joke and i don't want there money. Mr Charts however invites these ignorant no0bs to learn from him and through researching peoples experiences, not one is making aliving from his methods. It doesn't matter if its because its 'all about the traders not the method' - If thats true, then is it really fair to sell your method at all?

Knowing most will fail with it anyway...

I have more respect for someone learning to trade and throwing insults for fun on a forum, than a man trying to make innocent, ignorant newbies to trading give him their money.

I know my words are meaningless as i am a tw@ myself but i have found that everytime Aaron or i speak, you all insult us and we insult back - Then you go on about how we always insult people when you yourself are playing the exact same childish game - Being hypocrites if you like....

Maybe we should ALL just grow up.... Because i can't see that Aaron is any more immature than Gamma or Arabian - Who quite frankly, from all the replies i have ever seen have been as unhelpful as me in substance and usually quite abrasive.

I saw a thread called 'Agany aunt' or some **** like that... I read it, and it was literally THE saddest thing i've ever seen! I'm sad, but not enough to post in that thread... So next time you want to critique how twatish someone is please remember that most of us are ********s ourselves.

Trading, as in life, is a challenge to your emotions and your ego. If you succumb to either or both, you will find trading, and indeed, life, much harder. Have fun.

If someone calls you an ****, there are three options. I'll leave you to figure out what they are.

:arrowu:


I thik they just want to get a rise out of us for fun Halo.
I don't complain about most people because if I catch them when we're both on the same wavelength i.e I feel like learning and they feel like helping me, they do and I'm grateful.

Mr Charts just insults me. Therefore I concluded that he is a c*ck despite what anyone else tells me. Thats the beauty of having a free mind.

Anyway, if people wan't to get all cliquey a lá mean girls and hate me for not liking this guy then so be it. I really couldn't care less. There will always be someone else who capable of seeing past their own face and is also willing to help us newbs out. The way some people act on here you'd think they invented the concept of trading. It's quite hilarious.

you buy, the market goes down. vice versa.

if i go into a trade it is because i think it is the right thing to do. if it goes wrong it means i am wrong. i hate being wrong.

dont take it personally mate. I know how you feel. Sometimes when I enter a trade the market turns around to spite me too.

There is still alot of good information to be learned from this site you just have to skip the General Section as it’s just become another lounge area.

Also update your ignore list and don't bother looking at threads created by the same poeple. The same people who keep creating pointless threads or not using the search function.:whistling
