Quote: It was a good-natured discussion, not a bunch of vicious remarks back and forth.  We didn't "crap on" his thread.  No s*it - if I wanted to buy it I would've messaged him by now. I did not pull politics into the mix.  I don't care about politics in general. Has Banks been banned?

Come to think of it Jcusey, I was not that clear in my first post, and I am sorry, basically what I am saying is; 1. Nobody would knowingly want to make a loss. 2.

More than that, it's possible for management to think that they're maximizing profit while taking a loss on a particular product or product line. Ever heard of Ispat?

Just a thought....
