Asking how many shares you own is to asking someone what they make.
I asked what the share price was, not how many shares. I wasn't fishing for how big a position SG had. Folks post their share price all the time, its pretty innocuous. I even posted it above, bought BAC at $5. AAPL at 232, WY at 26, bla bla. We're free not to share it, I'm always happy to, win or lose and don't mind admitting I'm curious.
I've always found this grand privacy around salary a bit comic. My closest friends and I share our salaries openly. I worked for an international company who had an open book policy and had every employee's salary posted on the intranet. It did nothing harmful. I didn't care mine was public, nobody else cared either. I knew what my boss made, my bosses boss, etc. If you work at certain levels in a corporation or non-profit your salary is public information anyway. Public sector jobs also report it at a G level. Athletes too.
Funny how men are more than willing to brag about pussy conquest. To me that seems more private.Edited by idfnl - 1/29/13 at 10:12pm
