A Daily Reminder That Trolls Have No Place on Finance Blogs

Since tackling other subjects aside from finance, I’ve attracted a great new audience. This is what our traffic stats have been like over the past year, via Alexa.

Thank you for your patronage.

With new subjects comes new types of trolls, persons with heinous backgrounds, poor breeding, education, and outward failures in business. Hilarity always ensues when one of the political trolls attempts to cross over, trans-genre if you will, into my world of finance from their cavernous land of political ill repute.

After I blogged a nice little Easter note to my readers last night, telling them I felt there were extreme gains ahead, the following declaration was left in the comments section.

This is the reason why we don’t have an edit button for comments. Whatever you say shall be recorded here for eternity. I’ve pre-paid our server expenditures, 100 years hence, so that the institution known as iBankCoin can be passed on to new generations — a testament of when mankind had it in them to bank a profuse amount of coin in the markets, with style, grace, and a lot of outward aggression.

For those of you reading this in the future, just know that on the very next day, after that low brow troll left that disgusting comment on my blog, this happened.

Let it be noted, for all time, that the biggest winners for the past 12 months have not been in tech, but instead basic resources.

Let the record show, most accurately, that while Le Fly ‘missed out’ on the post-Presidential rally of 2016, he made the singular best macro call of his career, long bonds at a time when interest rates plunged to record levels. If it wasn’t for the Trump short squeeze, things might’ve turned out differently. Alas, complaints will not be offered here for lack of performance. I manifested my bearings, sold out of all of my positions, post haste, and placed all of my money into a single uranium stock, $UEC, at around a dollar — and then sailed off into 2017 a champion amongst champions — as UEC quickly rose by 80% — making it the best sector to be invested in for the beginning of 2017.

Admittedly, since then, the markets haven’t been very accommodating. I’ve always been a ‘thematic’ investor, which is why I am now long ‘globalist neocon’ stocks — because I intend to shill quite a bit for the purposes of profit. My thought process isn’t as cartoonish as it seems. I prefer to communicate to the masses in a manner that is relatable, rich with anecdotes, filled with prose designed to catch people off guard — evoking emotional responses.

How am I doing so far?

Precisely.

I’ve got two major league qualities that I’ve been able to scale in my life — knowing how to invest and write. This is why you come here on a daily basis — even the haters and the trolls — toiling on in my comments section for reasons unbeknownst to them.

People are attracted to greatness. Now that you’re clued in, please be sure to avoid offering financial advice in the comments section. Thanks in advance. Your insipid lack of decorum is a public disgrace — well deserving of a 542-word lecture of what not to say to the Blogfather when cavorting in his house.

    One question. Why pay server fees one hundred years hence when you are going to live forever?

    For a quick laugh, I googled “ironturd” and found a long history of neck-beard-mmorpg involvement associated with that alias. I don’t think that’s a coincidence.

    Always an audience for carnival barkers. Finance blog? More Alex Jones than Dow Jones.
    But kudos nonetheless.

        Twerp.. my guess your level of finance knowledge extends maybe to scratching a lottery ticket. Don’t think Fly needs a little man like you to defend his biz.

    I’ve been reading your blog, I believe, since 2007, when it was blogspot orange. You’re the man.

    Firstly, this is an honor. I feel, immortalized, relevant, almost new again. These old hands, rough from years put in at the Cordero. Those days are long gone, but maybe there’s hope now. What with the beautiful family we now have in the big house, looking out for the little guy and keeping the bad hombres out of our land; and big strong generous men like Fly, helping me make the most out of the little I have. I just want the grand kids to have a little something to remember me by. Just some coin you know, to call their own, to fall back on when their second startup gets a down round. Little Anthony’s been saving up for iBC bootcamp this year. He really looks up to you! Maybe future digital generations will come to know my humble little story and remember, times were simpler once. Financial blogs were financial blogs, and political shilling blogs were their own thing run by mentally ill conspiracy theorists battling for child custody claiming performance artist status.

    Secondly, I stand by my sentiment analysis in the current geopolitical context. Fly’s top ticked more than his fair share of markets/stocks and I’ve been around long enough to know that. Nothing personal, it’s just the exorbitant amount of emotion involved. In fact, I’m really not even that bearish, as I expect there to be egregious euophoria at the highs of this venerable Bull, but I suppose it just started clicking for a possible correction via Trump hangover. I get that this has all just become a sales funnel for your exodus product, but a year spent fomenting liberal hate, providing a safe space for anti-semites, homophobia, islamophobia and putting on a staggering display of bravado while going “all in” on penny stocks and Trump shillery – eventually has to get called out for what it is. Fake news. Trump trade was a pump and dump. Flailing about in Wall Stocks and War Stocks like its even a remotely sane investment strategy is just what it is, a Trump/Exodus commercial. Go for it, because whether you win or lose, it’s blog fodder. At the end of the day Le Fly, the artist, always wins.

    Thirdly, I agree that basic materials and oil were the biggest play for 2016. They also are all basically unch from 2014/15 levels. Notably, ex CWEI and PAM (Argentine regime change), your Exodus list is less than 1/3 basic materials with real trading potential, everything else is tech (NVDA, AMD, WIX, STM), biotech (EXEL, TSRO, AERI, EXAS) and turnaround names (SODA, CLVS, NTRI). WINS is a completely fake stock. TELL is a very recent spinoff. What does this say about Exodus? I guess it’s just multi-faceted like that.

    Fourthly, I am happy to be able to contribute to lively discussions of your oft un-appreciated grandeur and help earn a post hot-flame status. What is your greatness without someone else’s non-greatness to heartily eat its ass? Preferably antifag libtard, with all their experience? The comment section here has been full of anti-semitic homophobic, misogynist trolls, but I’ll be damned if that’s blogworthy!

    Lastly, you win. I’m a fan of your work despite how it may appear, though admittedly it’s been a tough year to stay keen. Getting worked up over the inanity of going from full Trump supporter to neocon shill overnight after a full year of Trump shilling just to support a few macro trades, was just enough to make one get the spins. That’s how I know I’m just wretched, unworthy scum of the earth though; thin-skinned, snowflake, pizza eating garbage dwelling grease trap son of immigrant minority scum . Thank you for your generous flagellation Fly, your words leave the most precious bloody marks on my skin, their future scars for which I am most sincerely, humbly, and utterly, grateful.
