An Angel, a King and a Zombie

A few comments to start the ball rolling today, the first from James who commented:
I wouldn't be surprised if Pixie Minge (my antagonist in your previous article's comments) was the not so great PeeWee himself or, at least, one of his shills.
A couple of years ago, I was approached by a BA forum regular who said that PeeWee wanted to employ him for "various forum tasks". I took that to mean saying nice things about PeeWee, lauding his software and genuflecting at his altar.
Although the droning nature of Pixie Minge's comments did remind me of PeeWee's many and tedious cringe worthy emails to me. So far, I have not heard from him this year. He must be working on attaining 15 winning trades out of 14, the mythical Webb's Number for which he received the Fields Medal for his tireless (tiresome?) work in mathematics and logic.
The suggestion that PeeWee is behind certain favourable Bet Angel comments has been made before, certainly on the Geeks Toy forum, but what is known with certainty is that PeeWee is not averse to editing his posts. I hate to disappoint James, but PeeWee's shot at a Fields Medal is long gone, since one has to be under the age of 40 to be considered. In true PeeWee style, he probably nominated himself only to come up against this ageist barrier.

On my Second Coming post, and a Happy Easter to all those readers who hold the belief that: 
...a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.
...which all clearly makes perfect sense to a logical mind, Gnome mage wrote:
Would never pay for any trading course. The price is ridiculous. That few hundred quid could be a small starting bank.
It is important to be skeptical of anything you read on the internet, some people only post their wins and never their losses and are not profitable in the long term.
Also its important to understand conflict of interest, "reviews" on rival software forums are obviously going to be bias. Meanwhile ,these forums advocate the same trading methodology but with different software. Not hard to tell that they are just the same sides of 2 coins.

Conflict of interest exists everywhere, among rival trading blogs and trading book sellers. It's important to see through them.
I'm pretty sure this blog has no conflict of interest with anyone else out there, bloggers, vendors, whatever, since I have nothing to sell, but otherwise Mr Mage is pretty much spot on. Even James found himself nodding in agreement:
At last I can agree with gnome mage.
Always buy your books from Amazon, where they are independently reviewed and you can get your money back, if you don't like it.
Buying a PDF off the author's website through PayPal means that you will not see an independent review and you have no way of getting your money back because a PDF is regarded as digital media by PayPal for which there is no refund.
Sound advice which I fear few will heed. 

Jamie joins in, adding:
The scams that have always existed in the gambling trade are now just as rife in the trading game. Especially with tools like which I fear gets used by many of these reptiles conning money out of the gullible.

A topic I first wrote about more than eight years ago. Where does the time go? Caveat emptor

Megarain had a recent post called Truth and Honesty in which he bemoans the fact that a Tweeter posts a fake picture of the weather at a cricket match in New Zealand in an attempt to manipulate the draw price. Given what we know about pitch-siders, I have to say that anyone betting on a cricket match who isn't actually there, or has agents there, is throwing his money away, and anyone making bets based on a Tweet deserves exactly what they get.   

Trader 24/7 had a post titled Comments which contained a reference to this blog. A comment from a Steve ended with:
I did consider writing a much more in depth reply re:value and how to assess it but you do seem to be more interesting in cultivating some cut price Cassini blog persona than your bots for the time being.
Trader 24/7's blog is one of the better reads out there, with 'botty boys' as his niche target audience. Pretenders may come and go, but there remains only one King of the Trading Blogs.

Thanks for the mention, always boosts view count.

May I draw your attention to some blatant plagiarism from which I received a link pingback on my blog -

They haven't even bothered correcting your typo on the first line (which I know you include to catch out lazy plagiarists).
