Planes, Trains & Auto-assholes



Sometimes I will get some asshole mails, like the one below:
Blogger fuee said...

"... nobody wants to be wrong and at the same time not being able to make some money when others have traded profitably, beware of the underlying reasons why some people are saying certain things"

so, what are you doing here? doing charity, by offering some of your "decent" views on certain stocks? speechless, let's wait and see.

10:54 AM


fuee,

obviously you are new to my site ... my site has been up for over 3 years ... you can go back and check my motivations for posting what I post ... its not charity, it clarity of thought for all to discuss ... I tell you what stocks I like, whether you want to buy or not is your grave and your coffin... if you make money you will not give me a sen, if you lose money I don't care, you go cry in a corner ... if I talk shit and rots, you don't have to visit my site, ... its free, nobody charge you a sen ... so be nice, don't like, don't click, don't come, but if you must comment take heart to know at least how/why/when/what I have been posting in the past before making such a cynical asinine comment ...

What you are doing is to an extent a thankless task; on the premise that you do not earn a fortune from advertising. And if indeed you do, you deserve every penny of it. Your thoughts and views are substantially better than that of many analysts and fund managers. I have been in investment (working as a dealer in an investment bank) for more than 20 years and should know what I am talking about. Keep up the good work.

Hi Dali,
Everyday I never miss visiting your site in the morning and at night. It's very good knowledge to read. Thanks for all the sharing. Keep up the good work and don't care about what others commented that doesn't know how to appreciate sharing :)

i bet this post is going to be repeated on a usual basis.

just like the babe photos post, or the demam denggi post, or the sell in may go away post.

solomon said...

Strictly speaking maybe Fuee has his views. Freedom of speech. Perhaps he wants to see the declaration of interests in a particular stock like the analyst did in US. However, this is only a blog, not necessary to have this.

But the bottomline is one had to learn to respect each other whatever you do, which I am still learning everyday.

PingMyLife said...

yes, those are arrogant assholes who take something free but still make a fuss about it... this is not a trader's point of view, but a reader's

kh said...

Sharing your vast experience and in depth knowledge is noble and we should applaud and emulate. Those noise merely , i think, will make you more determined in your journey.

Salvatore_Dali said...

thank you all for your kind words... I know I am a difficult blogger, I am sacarstic, I am rude, I am angry often .... thanks for tolerating my whims, inadequacies and fancies

METALRAGE said...

Your thought process is rationalized. Thanks for the writing & sharing.

gabriel said...

Dali, you have my full support. Thank you for sharing.

Gary said...

hi dali,

i thorough enjoy ur generous thoughts on economic markets, as well as snapshots of beauty on the side

it is unfortunate there are hypocrites and houlier-than-thou leeches who read for free and yet hav the gal to preach their intolerant views

fully support ur sarcasm for these ignorant buffoons

many thanks, and please keep up the great and charitable sharing! :D

plas said...

dont make it personal..talking stock has never been a politically correct win-win situation.money is involved & only the market is right.I would treat it as 'fun' blog rather than to make a stand...
relax man.take everything with a pinch of salt,as we're not born yesterday.......

fuee said...

a recap of what i wrote. anyway, some i believe, [solomon: freedom of speech, just a blog, and respect...],[plas: ...I would treat it as 'fun' blog rather than to make a stand...relax man].
and I don't really appreciate those calling this buffoon, asshole etc. even raja petra the blogger said he will always be the one to oppose gov, no matter PR or BN in power, cuz he has got to stand against the powers-that-be to see clearly, and think rationally - whats going on. as well you cant have a blog, and all the followers that only "give fully support", thats unhealthy and shouldnt be the norm.
imagine you have a debate, the ones that agree with the statement is proposition, the one disagree you call it asshole, is that the case? please be civilized a bit, allow for some other sounds.
(intro a movie titled "die Welle", watch one with english subtitle if you cant understand german)
second, i am not new to this blog. so i agree that dali did contribute some useful, thoughtful and interesting posts. thank you for sharing.
third, dali, you say you are rude blogger, i think i am a ruder reader.maybe i should have commented it in another way.i take your word, your enthusiasm for posting.
so, no going to be long-winded, i offer my apology.

Using a badly translated quote from my native French favorite poet : "the spit of the frog cannot reach the wings of the white dove." But to be a little more serious I find your market, social and political analysis spot on and very refreshing from the usual linear and uninspired discussions I need to face with finance professionals even at director level. I hope to be able to read your comments for a much longer time. A fan.

tohff7 said...

when are you going to write for Starbiz weekend again? :)

Salvatore_Dali said...

fuee,

i reserve the right to call things as i see them... as much as i respect yr views even when i am angered by them, i will still post them up ... as much as i allow you to sneak in a snarky remark, you should allow me to call it as it is ... trouble with words and postings is that we cannot see the nuances or feel the inflections when we say the things we said, we cannot see our emotions and tone ... pls continue to write in, even when you have only brickbats, and i will continue to counter and whack back if i feel i have been slighted... thats freedom and respect right

to the rest, i am overwhelmed by the kind comments, i appreciate them very much, thanks

toh,
i think i put up a request for an increase in writing fees, and during the same time there was a new biz editor ... somehow no one got back to me, maybe they dont love me anymore...

its easy to criticize, but hard to praise people. so we cannot completely blame fuee coz he is after all human being. you jus need to learn to praise n not criticize that much.

if you dont like what u read, just blame yourself for not being able to understand frm the writer's perspective. after all, no one is asking for your negative comments.

if dali didnt blog, where you think you can get such original ideas here, from a generous malaysian?

keep it up dali!

Tony said...

I make buy or sell decisions sometimes based on what other write: analysts from brokerages, even bloggers. Years ago I used to pay for such information. Nowadays I get them free from my brokers. Blogs are of course free. Sometimes I win sometimes I lose; in the end its my decision.
Its like sports betting: there are lots of pundits giving free advice on the internet. But i think they make some money from the adverts they get from betting companies. If they get it right 60% of the time, they are good.
I rate Dali at maybe 70% right, so he is very good.

Andrew Chua said...

hey guys,

fuee apologized already... so maybe we should all forgive her? :)

in all fairness, i personally think negative comments should be allowed, although they should be restricted to the facts of the debate only...

in this case, questioning the writer's motives is a bit hitting under the belt.

maybe what dali said "一针见血", that's why fuee is jumping up and down? heheh just joking...

since she has apologized, all's good now isn't it?

see said...

Just adding my 2 sens worth....there will always be assholes and detractors. They should just use their own otak if they wanna follow tips & advice. Think before open big fat mouth

Lee said...

Dali, i managed to learn a lot from your blog. I am in the electrical industry line. If you ever need any advice on any electrical issues, i will be glad to share it with you. Thank you very much again for sharing your financial knowledge.
