Honestly...I never thought I'd see or say this...
Alstry is quitting?
I did not always like his approach, his message, or his delivery of said message, BUT I never thought I would see him quit. Even when his predictions did not come to fruition, I didn't expect him to keep his promises to stop.
While I can not say that I agreed with him, I can say without a doubt that he was a favorite of mine and I always learned something from his posts. I might not have liked what I learned, because the lesson always appeared to include some negative news. BUT I learned.
Alstry may be correct in his assertion that NO ONE CARES, but I think what he is seeing is a typical reaction to a trauma...called shock. At this point, there really is no way to compute or digest what may be coming. Of course, we all want things to work out and really don't want to hear anything that is contrary to that. But...the reality might be a lot closer to Alstry's view than any one cares to admit.
I for one, am not looking at the economy through the same eyes that I did a couple of years ago. AND I have Alstry's rants to thank for it.
So...Alstry...while I did not agree with you...and even traded words with you from one infrequent time to another...THANK YOU for your attempts to enlighten everyone.
Good luck and don't waste too much time coming back to say you told us so...should the occasion arise. If it doesn't, please consider coming back anyway. We may need someone to balance the scale should it tip too far to the rosy colored glasses side.
