I agree... it's a baffling phenomena, I would guess associated with boards like this one in particular, where people are HOPING for disaster. And they don't just want a minor collapse, they want pain, suffering, death, riots, looting, hunger and starvation, the whole 9 yards. They are lying if they say otherwise. "Oh.. I don't reeaaly want that.. I just want the 'system' to fall!" Yea.. right.. whatever.
Fleabit, what you suspect truly misses the mark. What is really going on in here is more akin to the captain of the Titanic (and his minions) shouting "The sea ahead is clear" and the passengers replying "It doesn't match the facts".
I don't feel happy/elated when the stock market is down. There are people I care about whose 401k's, IRA, and retirement packages are taking a terrible beating because of stock market crashes. Some of those folks have been investing their whole lives and were counting on that money being there for them in their retirement years. Some of those folks are in their retirement years now and are facing a difficult decision.

We are just sick of the game.
The false pumping up of imaginary funds into a dead system.
The game must end at some point so that the true up swing can begin.
