Is Alstry On TMF Payroll?

Recs

Is Alstry on TMF payroll? I think the idea is not too far-fetched.

I've seen CAPS players *Cough-Cough*(TheHypnoToad)*Cough-Cough* booted for less serious infractions than Altry routinely puts forth. I suspect he is protected on high because he is a member of TMF staff. Can you imagine talking smack about the brothers Gardner without even one peep from anyone at the home office coming to their defense? I think his attacks go unchalleneged because those at the top at TMF HQ want him to stir the...ummm...lets call it *pudding*. I think they believe every great story (or investing community) needs to have a bad guy. The Bible has Satan. Star Wars has Darth Vader. The Food Network has Rachel Ray.

Without a provocateur there would be less energy to TMF. But as experience shows sometimes less is more.

Udderly Yours,

Cato

P.S. - As with anything else I post there is a good chance I'm totally wrong.

"The Food Network has Rachel Ray." A rec for that line alone.

How can he be a bad guy when he's frequently ignored?

How Sassy can be labeled anything other than a spammer is beyond my comprehension. It's sad that his pointless posts continually push legitimate discussions off of the recent post lists and off of the "Most Recommended" lists (and there is no way that Sassy gets that many recs without utilizing multiple accounts...the world simply isn't that dumb).

I can only reiterate my desire for an "ignore" function from The Fool.

+1 rec

An ignore feature would be spectacular.

What's strange is the Oil Trading Academy spam is deleted, the online store promoting $5 Coach handbags, etc. All deleted.

His constant spamming promoting his website remains.

Did anyone else notice that Alstry was oddly missing in action in the comments section of TMFBiggles blog post "The Next Economic Revolution"?

Could TMFBiggles=Alstry? (Shhhhh)

Notice how Astray (purposely misspelled) doesn't respond to this thread. This is a common theme. He will simply start another one. He's not much for engaging, just spamming.

I've watched alot of movies and generally the villian is the nice guy, the last person you would expect.

Who fills that bill here on Caps? Could it be someone that occasionally write blogs about the villian. Maybe throwing us off the trail of the real truth.

It all fits-

<<<CATO IS ALSTRY>>>

I've come to the same conclusion, cato, I think it's highly likely that he is a sort of "regular poster" that is designed to be the celebrity that everyone loves to hate.
