I have to disagree. I'm not trying to sell anything. Just relating an experience. And, JVA JVA JVA JVA, etc is one of them.

No, what it seems like you're doing is trying to pump a stock up, which falls under this board rule:

Participants may not use the Forums to post or transmit advertisements or commercial solicitations of any kind.

Maybe I'm wrong about what you're doing, but that's sure what it feels like.

Ah. I was just excited about it. And this is the thread for stocks.

That you started.

So I'm going to start a thread on Golf equipment and then post golf equipment SPAM and say it's OK, because this is the correct thread?

I gotta admit, even though many of his posts and shouts have left me scratching my head, and even though I chimed in with a Spam joke, I'm not too concerned about a forum rule violation here.

AFAIK, CatBrat is not a majority shareholder/partner/executive in JVA, nor is he a commissioned stock broker. While he does own a few shares and could conceivably profit if we all dash out and buy JVA stock, and while there is some sort of goofy cheerleading going on, my take is that this thread is a legitimate attempt to discuss stocks and that his motive was not to inflate the stock but instead to do that which we all do when we recommend a receiver, an album, or a beer: share knowledge and the joy of our discoveries.

I agree with JP and David, I took Brian's post as a friend sharing some knowledge about a stock he liked.

You got it right. I get e-mail spams all of the time from someone who bought some penny stocks and is trying to get others to buy and then make a profit from it at their expense. That is something I would never do, especially here on this forum. That would just be a dasterdly thing to do.

My intention was to share a stock that I liked at the time. I did make an easy 50% from it out of a 600% journey it had already made. Then sold all but the 50%. So I now have about $4000 worth of this stock that basically didn't cost me anything. I just thought it was kinda cool.

It was not a penny stock, and was trading over 1M share/day.

Yup, I agree, JP. I was going to post a very similar message yesterday but withheld (imagine that).
