If he started acting this weird only laterly, maybe something was happening in his life and he was just venting here. Like illness, death of a loved one ... some people are not good at dealing with emotions, maybe he lives alone ... freaking out because of one ad per page is just abnormal. Doesnt mean such behavior should be tolerated.

Well, it looks like @GFIs1 drifted too far off the path at the end. A path that he had previously followed very confidently and successfully for so many years.

I can understand that some of the changes in the forum rubbed him up the wrong way. But I don't know why things ended up the way they did. It didn't have to be.

But to spread personal speculations about his private life here is wrong and inappropriate, as the man has shown many people here over the years in his own way how to do pure futures trading.

If @GFIs1 is still reading the forum, I would like to tell him that I wish him all the best for his future, despite my clear understanding for @Big Mike's decision.

I have always enjoyed looking into your thread and it has always made me happy when you have won. Wish you a good life in old age with this money, if you haven't touched it by then, and take care of yourself and your special feelings.

All the best from the Swiss from Zurich.

Hey @Symple,

wasnt trying to offend him, quite on the contrary - his reaction seems irrational to me, people (including me) tend to act irrationally when they are under pressure so by saying "maybe something was happening in his life and he vented here" is more compassionate than saying "the dude lost it".

I understand pouring thousands of hours into posts with the aim of helping others makes a person attached to the forum in a very special way. But at the same time, having seen some of his posts from the last month or two, I just do not understand what was pissing him so much. I know he started voicing some disapproval when the MC thread started and that was already before the ads reappeared.

P.S. On second thought, you're right. My reaction was inapproriate. His motives are his and are none of my business. On the other hand, the deleted thread willl now be either extra work for the mods or there will be many links/mentions throughout the forum that lead to nowhere - all because of "an ad". By doing what he did, he made his perceived loss a real one, as all the time he pushed into wrtiting the journal have just become partially wasted.

I originally had same thoughts. Like he had a bad day or big loss or etc. That happens to everyone. But he just kept coming and kept complaining about everything. The legal threat was final straw for me.

@Big Mike With the increase of popularity and use of online prop firms, not sure if you wanted to create a dedicated forum / channel for discussion and review of these instead of having them in the "real / personal" broker review section. Just a thought

Is "prop firm" really the best/accurate description?
