The Return of the Peanut Gallery

Last go around for the Peanut Gallery was several years ago, an open blogging forum that iBC hosted for scores of vagrants and intellects alike. For me, it was a grande failure because the culture of iBankCoin was diluted by know-nothing fucktards, mostly interested in self promotion. After posting my request for formal Twitter resumes, I’ve received dozens of emails from people interested in voicing their opinions.

This is good news from a finance blogging viewpoint, as some believe Twitter has all but eliminated the need for blogs. The truth is, if you’re only on Twitter, you’re a nomad without a home. iBC can offer a homebase for you, one that is without agenda, aside from the completion of the Orbital Space Cannon (OSC), designed wholly for offensive purposes only. To my point, I offer zero promises or monetary reward for joining our ranks. Ad dollars do not support the site and I’d be a ridiculous person to offer money to people who’ve yet to prove themselves valuable to our organization.

Where we’re going with this?

Sky is the limit. iBankCoin has a powerful voice in finance, with over 65 million page views since inception. If you differentiate yourself from the pack, I will assuredly invite you to become a “tabbed blogger.” With it, eventually, may or may not lead to monetary gain. I’ve netted millions in profits from the site, since inception, self funded, totally bootstrapped, and without the hawk eyes of vulture capitalists peering over my shoulder.

That being said, if you’re interested in joining our platform and offering content, whenever it suits you, email me at [email protected]

I am likely to select just 5 people to beta test the program, then expand from there. Ideally, you will bring something to the table, in the form of a Twitter or StockTwits following. If not, I’d like proof that you actually know english.

Regards,

Le Fly

      the peanut galley-you know the fucks who throw
      beer bottles from the 500 level or the fucks
      who destroy opera singers cause they call them

        Completely disagree – anarchy on a blog doesn’t help anyone. Having said that, your argument here specific to the peanut gallery does advance a compelling point.

    Make them wrestle in a vat of lard with the heat turned to high and then place a olive leafed crown on the winner’s head. I will tune in for that.

    OK. I get it now. I have to come up with something flog worthy. If you don’t hear from me, it’s either because I couldn’t think of anything, I’m too busy or just too lazy. I’m sure you’ll manage. – V.

    Haters. That said Fly if you want sales, give out a free sub to someone who can sign up 5 people or something. That’s a different ball game though.

    For me iBC is first and foremost about community. Folks who come here everyday, read all the shit, and get to know each other, albeit 1/2 of you fuckers are still weird gremlin vegetable avatars. iBC is about the way back machine, and the future, inside jokes and ballsy calls. And certainly Fly’s preposterous writing style and persona. It’s a bunch of addicts hooked on the thrill. Select people who can help hold down the community – not just throw out a short term winners seconds before they pop 5%.

    OA has been holding it down like a motherfucker no doubt, but you can use another tabbed blogger – good luck with the auditions

    .

    I don’t “tweet” …

    I don’t “stocktwit” …

    I don’t “instagram” …

    NEVER been on “Facebook” …

    Don’t have a clue WTF “Periscope” is …

    —–

    And yet … SOMEHOW … I am still able to function and be a reasonably informed member of society !

    I guess “The Peanut Gallery” is pretty much out of the question though !

    Que Sera Sera !!!

    I have been sincerely enjoying the snarky, yet newsy, breaking news feed at the top of the new page. Excellent addition
