SLS . LSE Chutiputha Cubedsole ET Serene etc etc..

Post by yellow knife on Wed Feb 08, 2017 7:23 am

My dear friends

I remember the good articles of yours posted in this forum..

We may be ungrateful to the duty you have done to the forum as well as to the investor community in general , if we don't remind you from time to time and if we fail to invite you back to the forum...

No one can be always available to post or comment... Yet when we miss the good contributors we feel sad.

A country cannot move forward if we fail to look back from time to time and evaluate our behavior in different situations.

SLS has made accurate predictions and he personally advice me to sell LIOC though I was very late to listen to him..He was available for many to get advice...

LSE was maintaining pivotal point indicator and was good at TAs...We still remember his contribution.. When I look at the hits he got for his posts, its higher than many other posts..

Chuti became silent after getting married.. Its ok for a week or two... but so long ?

Cubedsol started few good threads and became inactive..so was Groundedkestrel..ET had different views and was there to appreciate good posts as well as to criticize when needed...

I know when the market is dull,many do not even look at CSE web.. Yet its our duty to remember them and to invite them back...

No my dear... if we cannot see different views arguing in the same place how can we talk about peace of the land...

Mind you I am pro Dictators but have a higher tolerable limits on different views...

Those who cry for democracy have lesser tolerance levels...

So I urge all to increase the tolerance levels yet argue and criticize where needed...

Reading YK’s post reminds me of Martin Niemoller’s famous poem.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Here, first we fought with the Experts and chased them on technicalities,
With them gone are the “Freebies guys”,
Then we fought with the invaders and chased them away too temporarily, but knowing well that they are waiting for another opportunity to attack us.
Finally, what we are left with the rice husks (NATO boys fans, Shoeshine boys, and අඩන බබා) only to carry the Forum forward.

Thanks YK for opening this timely thread. It shows that there are people out here who are gratuitous towards good & genuine contributors, but I am also very sad to hear that some think that "they have chased away" some of us.

Kith has warned (in his own way) the general membership that the same fate may befall on any one (for no apparent reason) in the future.

This is a grave matter that the Admin has to intervene seriously & immediately. Once, I drew his attention to this grave issue in a different thread where a party to a dispute in Admin team trying to admonish genuine members.

Over to Admin. ?May I know the names of members who were chased away and any reasons that lead to that drastic action.

Good to see you ET. We miss the glory of forum we had back then with SLS, and other great contributors. Now only few (YK, etc) who remain doing something worthwhile.

Hey, don't underestimate your contributions in the forum. Kith, you, some way or the other, kept it going with interesting posts in your own way, when the forum was dull while also supporting worthy courses. Though you are playing with gut feeling etc., you deserve Pawada for the unique contributions you made.

Ahh nice to see some familiar faces. Any possibilities of "burying the hatchet" and rebuilding the community ?
Wiping the slate clean ? Worth a try, we had something very good going here, for us and the many guests here.
Going into specifics might lead us back to Nanthikadal. sunny

My personal belief is this is not the right time to invite our good posters to be back in live vibrant mood.

No one is interested when there is a long down fall in the market. When market picks up there will be many to write.

But I opened the thread for existing members to share their views, to check our own behaviour when there were arguments among fellow members here as well as to convey the message (for those are not active now) that we have not forgotten them or their contribution to the forum.

I am not an Admin here, but a self appointed librarian who want to see the library is maintained properly and all librarians understand the place will be in demand only when the exam is near.

actually, people should be jumping with joy to see these counters at these prices. if anybody paid JKH 165, GRAN@110, CDB@100 with pleasure, they should be delighted to see these counters at bargain.

I think "writing" and "investing" are not the same. people should be motivated to write pages for public welfare if writer doesn't have any ulterior motives. problem is, most of the genuine writers used to write here are not motivated to write anymore.

Why don't you mates invite some, errhhh, some female names to post some comments/questions here and there.

It looks you know, whatever you try, the same pole of magnets repel each other, so some opposite poles are required to counterbalance the forces.

This forum does not pay anyone who writes here.

Since many write in nick-names it does not create any social value to the writers.

Then what makes one to write in the forum and why can there be clashes among writers ?

( @ Ying Yang

There was one female name..may be Nis9999 or someone.. Has it attracted others )

My friend, you seems to have caught the wrong meaning.

1) That Nis does not sound much female.
2) Being a name there will not work, there should be some active participation
3) I am not talking of attraction; just counterbalancing the forces only, making the repellent forces nullified.


When all here, are experts in investing; on behalf of whom should anyone post?

They were just shown the door (the lost is not theirs but the public')

None of the members whom I mentioned in the caption were always agreeing with what I wrote.

SLS and I had enough arguments ... ET had opposing political views of mine.. Yet we respected each other.

This is what I am demanding from the forum members. Increase your tolerance levels.

Those who want to dine with Terrorists, those who want Gay rights and Lesbian rights fail to discuss share related matters patiently .. Why ?

Now we first so the departure of  Shark.. I asked about that then.. I may not agree upon all his technical forecasts.. But he was a very enthusiastic writer..

Next another prolific writer Chinwi left us.  Why ? Duet to hot political debates.. This government has not harmed the friendships they have with Rajapaksha family.. but here our own family members fall apart due to political debates...

In Chinwi's case I would say both parties should have a very high level of tolerance on opposing views..

SLS, ET etc were bombed with ungrateful remarks like Sshh.... or LOL etc..Why weren't SLS admired for his good job done to the forum.. Sometimes he may be expecting a very Perfect World which you will never find anywhere.. I ve read somewhere that Walter Disney created EPCOT ( expected protocol city of Tomorrow ) believing that he can create a perfect pure town..His brother persuaded him to see the real world and finally they created Disneyland.. That kind of compromising would have done with SLS

The root cause for the departure of good members may be EGO or as I said hubris.

From that perspective I admire Ying Yang for helping many ( including me ) to crush the emerging Egos...

However in this dull market its worth to invite all of them back and I hope at least few will return ...

Next Chinwi was c

Hi Yellow Knife, just butting in to point out that Disneyland was created way before EPCOT. Disneyland was first created in Los Angeles and later Disney created Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida, that consists of Magic Kingdom (like in Los Angeles) along with EPCOT, Animal Kingdom etc.

Thanks... Alchemist... I just said I read somewhere and of course I did not double checked ..

Now Alchemist this is what we want.. This is the same reason I like Jiggysaurus...

****************************************

anyway I double checked and this is what I found

***********

The Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow (EPCOT) was an unfinished concept being developed by Walt Disney. Its purpose was to be a "real city that would 'never cease to be a blueprint of the future,'"[1] designed to stimulate American corporations to come up with new ideas for urban living. This was part of Walt Disney's original plan for the property purchased near Orlando, Florida, but after his death in 1966, the property became the Walt Disney World Resort in 1971 and a theme park based on the idea opened in 1982.[2] A portion of the original architectural model of the concept can be viewed on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover in the Magic Kingdom

My friend,
It's amazing your capabilities to draw out multiple interpretations out of, well known , obvious messages sometimes. It illustrates what is full of inside your mind at the moment.

Read the following famous story. Good read for all 'experts' and pre-obsessed minds.

++++++

"
The teaching story goes as follows…

This man is a wealthy, educated man, very successful, and got huge bank accounts. But he has heard about this particular monk who knows the secret to life.

And he decides he wants to know that secret. So, he gains entrance to the monastery. He is sitting there, he gains an appointment with the zen master and he moves and he is sitting now at the table with the zen master. He has travelled far, it has taken a lot of time to get there and now he is at the table with the zen master.

And the zen master listens to this man tell him about all the richness, his accomplishments, levels of education. And the man says I’ve done this I’ve done that. So, all there left for me is the secret of life.

The zen master asks: ‘Would you like a cup of tea? Until the man says: ‘Well yeah, I’ll have a cup of tea and then you will tell me the secret of life’. The zen master says yes.

So, the zen master brings out the tea and he puts one cup in front of this man and one in front of himself. And he takes the tea pot and he begins pouring, all the while looking at this man. This man is continuing to tell the zen master about his many accomplishments, who he knows and where he’s been, palaces, and The White House and all of the many things of this world that the man has accomplished and done.

The zen master is pouring the tea and pouring the tea and fills the tea cup and the man is telling the zen master about his travels, all the famous people he knows and all of his accomplishments through the years. The zen master keeps pouring the tea and this fellow telling him all the great things he has done. And the tea cup is filling, filling and filling. The tea cup begins to overflow. So, not only is the tea cup full, now the saucer is filling.

And the man was talking on and on and on about himself and all of a sudden he feels something on his leg and he looks down and it’s the tea. He’s seeing the tea cup overflowing, and the saucer that is now overflowing onto the table cloth. The cloth on the table is now soaking up all the extra tea until the tea is dripping down the side of the table onto the man’s suit.

And he quickly scoops back and goes: ‘What’s the matter with you?! The tea is overflowing on everything and you’re still pouring!’

And the zen master looked at him and he said this: ‘The secret of life is this. A cup can be only filled when it is empty. You can only be filled when you are empty. Come back when you are not so full of yourself.’
