I've noticed a recent spate of new registrees (often with numbers after their names, like "ThinkHappyThoughts 3312," to pick a fictional example)
popping up and disappearing overnight. Such new registrees often seem to only pop in and out of threads to derail or "debunk" any "gloom and doom
For example, you might be reading a serious, well-researched, statistics-laden thread and then suddenly a newly-registeed poster (with a post count
of, say, one or two; registered same day) will interject with a one-or-two liner like:
-"Chicken littles have been around forever, don't listen to this doom and gloom talk, the recovery is strongly under way and only losers are
-"There are so many exciting new developments going now in tech and the markets, I can't see why anyone would want to obsessively focus on the
negative. There must be something wrong with such people."
-"I don't know what you are talking about, the shops and malls around here are full to bursting with consumers spending real money."
These "people" interject suddenly, add no statics, links, or proof...its always random anecdotal evidence or some kind of thinly-veiled ad-hominim
attack. Then, after making three or four posts here and there, they vanish, never to be heard from again.
Really makes me wonder...is there a bustle in our headgegrow?
