I'd argue that 15 years is only barely longer than short-term rather than veteran. How did you discover TLF? C.

Perhaps 15 years is a bit long for me, so I'll focus on learning more in the future. I started using TLF on a friend's recommendation because I wanted to join this community and learn about global macroeconomics.

We recently received great criticism from users about being too brusque and unwelcoming to a user, that turned out later to be an AI (robertbanking). So now we are being polite and trying to postpone the deletions/bans until certain hallmarks of humanity are consistently absent. C.


How are users supposed to know that this is what the Mods are doing? Is a Mod fawning over a new user supposed to be a hint for everyone else??

And how long does this assessment of humanity take, are thirteen posts not enough?

And why would a mod direct such a new user to a discussion board where he/she/it has already started two new threads?

I wouldn't want to get the impression that they are just making things up as they go along...

They are not supposed to know (or not know). And, you'd need to ask the moderator in question but I suspect not.

GoSeigen wrote:And how long does this assessment of humanity take, are thirteen posts not enough?
It varies depending upon the responses. We have no hard and fast rules. It is also a bit of a judgement call, which would be bad if we got wrong.

GoSeigen wrote:And why would a mod direct such a new user to a discussion board where he/she/it has already started two new threads?
Perhaps because the mod was just trying to be helpful without wasting his day scanning through a board on the off-chance the advice wasn't needed? But possibly also to elicit a response to better make the aforementioned judgement call?

Heaven forbid, no. We've had years of training on how to differentiate between humans and AIs.

Thank you for the welcome.
Straight away I am googling and trying to work out how you can easily list the top high yielding shares from FTSE 100 or even FTSE 250. What tool would I use (hopefully something simple and free) to identify these companies?

Straight away I would ask yourself what you mean, and want, from the word yield? And why? (This isn't the correct place to answer - but arriving at that answer will help you immeasurably in achieving what you are looking for.)

Hello, I found this site via the following thread titled "candle heating £215.." It was grey and miserable last night so I was wondering how many watts of heat a candle produced. I manage the wife's and my savings/ investments so the site seemed useful to join.

Glad that you found us, Chris. I hope that you find us useful. We are an odd mixture of types, as you will no doubt find out.

Hi

I am an old lag from the earlier incarnation of this...I remember BillyBonkers, Clariman, KissxOfxDeath, Richasdotcom, PetraM, JGM2 and my personal favorite Femiokay (as well as Spider and GRow, of course)

Any of these guys/gals here?

Clariman jointly runs the place. Petra was here for a while...others may also be here, but chose to identify as something else......

Think I might start to identify as Christina. ;)

I hope this is the right place to do the opposite of introducing myself.

I’m leaving. I’ve been around since the MF days.

I’ve enjoyed the financial side but found myself upset by the CAN postings so I stopped visiting there or visited only on the basis that I accepted the upset. Some pretty virulent politics (mainly right wing but sometimes left wing) spread to other boards.

I complained about these but it is, of course, a judgement issue. Most posts remained.

I marked some LemonFools as disliked to avoid their postings but some are everywhere and vastly repetitive making other boards/threads unreadable.

I have enjoyed the postings and support of some people - thank you. Despite your efforts and kindnesses the irritation is too much. I miss some of the departed LemonFools such as Dod and Gengulphus who taught me much on the financial front.

I have decided to leave.

Please delete my username, profile, etc on Friday. Until then I will check private messages.

Best wishes,

Steve

As stated in the reply to your other post, the post was deleted because of the intemperate language used. If you are not willing to follow the site rules you must be prepared to suffer the consequences.

I've no idea whether I've been marked as a "foe" or not. I've marked a fair few people as "foes" but still occasionally click on the required button to open their posts.

I'd certainly say on CAN, there's a lot of people with strong opinions. I think quite often some posters offer their opinion and suggest it is fact - which is clearly a nonsense.

I'm quite open - my politics is of the right, I don't think it is remotely close to far right. I don't particularly have an issue with immigration. I don't have a strong view on Brexit (I didn't vote in the referendum). I'm not a particularly big fan of some of the current UK governments policies, ditto the Spanish, Russia, the US or whichever other country you could pick. Am I likely to attend a protest about it - no.

CAN is a ranting ground. So long as you rant politely then I suspect it doesn't contravene site rules. Let them rant. I ignore lots of it or chuckle about the random or inane points made.
