01[10:13] {Threei}  old news
01[10:13] {Threei}  useless lawyer crap, too
[10:13] {ese} ya ......just wondering what if any word there is
01[10:14] {Threei}  it will take years
01[10:14] {Threei}  and many many billable hours
[10:14] {ese} thought i saw something lately in the paper about another suit re the IPO
01[10:14] {Threei}  which is what whole thing is about
[10:14] {cc_9000} F back to lows again
01[10:15] {Threei}  there is no any sensible merit to the suit
01[10:15] {Threei}  but rest assured many lawyers will make nice coin while pretending there is
[10:15] {Will49} I had a suit like that once
[10:15] {RonS} zoot?
[10:15] {Will49} yeah
[10:16] {thomcbell} well it could deflate a little of the enthusiasm

[10:16] {Will49} pointed black shoes and a ducktail haircut
[10:16] {ese} Found it.........Mark Zuckerberg, banks sued over Facebook IPO Disgruntled investors say Facebook did not disclose the financial risks it faced over mobile ads CBC News Posted: Dec 18, 2013 1:13 PM ET Last Updated: Dec 18, 2013 9:32 PM ET
[10:16] {RonS} like it...real men wear pink

[10:17] {ese} he is such an idiot zuckerberg
[10:17] {RonS} wish was such an idiot here...
01[10:17] {Threei}  why? because he didn't disclose the financial risks over mobile ads?
01[10:17] {Threei}  no kidding... ese is redefining a lot of vocabulary :)
01[10:18] {Threei}  he is many things, most of them unflattering... but loser and idiot he is not
[10:18] {ese} L kmx .30
[10:18] {dino} must be nice being a billionaire idiot. i'd like to try it
01[10:19] {Threei}  I'll take another half of that experiment, dino - I'll be a loser billionare
[10:19] {RonS} except being that guy in Brazil
[10:19] {dino} lol
[10:19] {thomcbell} lvs still looking for an entry
[10:19] {RonS} went for prox 635 bil to 2 in year
[10:19] {nemo} lvs gaining strength on algo thom
01[10:19] {Threei}  how did he do that?
[10:19] {ese} what was the name of the company that just went bankrupt because the ceo treated his investors like crap issuing more shares to dilute the float the day after the ipo
[10:19] {thomcbell} mu 21.76 long break
[10:19] {ese} zuckerberg is in the same category
[10:19] {RonS} didn't read particulars
01[10:20] {Threei}  he is really not ese
01[10:20] {Threei}  you are blinded to the reality by your personal dislikes
[10:20] {ese} maybe
[10:21] {ese} out kmx .45 +.15
01[10:21] {Threei}  company you mean was pure green lunacy from the get go
01[10:21] {Threei}  and it was AONE
01[10:21] {Threei}  and CEO was empty suit
[10:21] {ese} ya that was it
01[10:22] {Threei}  FB is a very different animal
01[10:22] {Threei}  and Zuckerberg is a hoodie, not a suit
[10:22] {ese} i hate facebook like you all hate Obama
01[10:22] {Threei}  so? it doesn't mean that he is a loser
01[10:22] {Threei}  or idiot
01[10:23] {Threei}  hate it for it is
01[10:23] {Threei}  not for what it isn't
[10:23] {RonS} don't hate the O but how can you like a guy that is screwing your but daily and ruining the country
01[10:23] {Threei}  there are plenty real things to hate it for
[10:23] {RonS} butt
[10:23] {thomcbell} lvs 77.70 long break aggressive Vad?
[10:23] {thomcbell} too thin today
01[10:24] {Threei}  I hate the spread, tbell
[10:24] {thomcbell} yeah
01[10:24] {Threei}  untradeable
[10:24] {ese} listen..,...he's the dufuss whos giving all your personel inormation to any number of security intelligence services on the planet.......
[10:25] {RonS} love that Adelson dodged prox $3 bil in taxes...legally
[10:25] {ese} for free
01[10:25] {Threei}  how about this ese: FB is horrifically inrtusive, ignores basics of privacy, blatantly dictatorial in social conduct
01[10:25] {Threei}  all this is real problem
[10:25] {ese} perfect
01[10:25] {Threei}  so, there are real things to hate it for
[10:25] {ese} couldn't agree more
01[10:26] {Threei}  why do you turn it into childish pussing contest of labels like loser and idiot, which are just untrue?
01[10:26] {Threei}  this only undermines your argument
[10:26] {ese} eventually all that will undermine the business model.....hopefully sooner than later
01[10:27] {Threei}  maybe, but I personally think real threat is different
[10:27] {ese} thats easier to type
01[10:27] {Threei}  remember how Myspace went empty almost overnight?
[10:27] {thomcbell} here comes the moment of truth on fb
[10:27] {dino} not so sure ese, imagine fb gets it and protects at some time
01[10:27] {Threei}  social media world is a fickle bitch
01[10:28] {Threei}  it may simple go out of vogue
[10:28] {ese} i hope so
01[10:29] {Threei}  oh and btw... did you know that he is a huge Obama supporter, and used a lot of FB power to help him win both elections?
[10:29] {ese} idiot
[10:29] {RonS} feel like Will here...come on cme...need to go to the bathroom...
[10:30] {dino} feeling the same here ron
[10:30] {Will49} hold on hold on
01[10:30] {Threei}  now now... being obama supporter yourself, how do you label THAT an idiot?? :)
[10:30] {ese} obama that is........why would he hook up with a dufuss like that
[10:30] {RonS} de monet...
01[10:30] {Threei}  because winning an election is abive everything else
[10:30] {dino} money ese, money

[11:42] {nemo} so he uses what he has, doesn't try to be what he's not
[11:42] {nemo} I've seen this before
[11:43] {ese} guys like Dave Weckl and Vinnie Coliuta drum circles around him but it's not always about that
