I have no real issue with Eric I think he cones across as a top bloke on the whole, I just found his whole do nothing approach difficult to swallow, I can fully understand a lack of funds but to be fair never being able to average down in a penny share which you are invested in is a bit odd over such a long period, never wanting to do anything about it even odder and to then continually criticise Laffer for being proactive enough to get off his rear and try, odder still.
On that note I have continually seen posters on here attack the guy for trying to do something to protect their investments and on that basis alone I have no problems what so ever with disregarding most of what they have to say. I did and still do appreciate any help offered but to be honest if its not balanced its not really help. The time for even lsitening to ultra positive posters who base their opinions on nothing but being a glass half full kind of guy is long gone. There are still some who refuse to accept the current situation is not a positive one.
I also recall help from others amongst you who portrayed yourselves as all knowing long termers. I remember most clearly being told by LJC the board guru that only an idiot would sell at these levels (Around 2p) with support from many of you, I was laughed at and mocked in some posts for starting to off load some at the time it was shortly after we got approval and moved 6/7% on the day and after almost 50% move on MA false RNS. I was ready to go at that point as it seemed very wrong and should of trusted my own judgement, more fool me for being swayed by the help provided and not selling the lot. Very foolish indeed.
"I don't really care about BMR and have little time and interest in being proactive any more. I just want to put the past four and a half years behind me - if AB surprises us all then great, I make some money, but if not then I couldn't give a flying one anymore. It's not important enough to spend any more time on."
Yes I can, He seems to have gone missing, Stand by what I said though odd approach to have if you have so much faith in a company to never average down over such a long period. Unlike your good self who averaged down on just about every drop. :)
What is your view on this, should we place our heads in the sand and risk becoming delisted or should we push for an egm? I would like to let AB continue with what i hope is in our best interests here however are we not runnnig a little too close to time on this one?
Maybe its not glasses but a blind fold you have on :) Hows a gut feeling of a positive outcome based on nothing at all not rose tinted? Also what did I slate other than continual lack of news. ffs ;) I did state it was MO and this is after all a board for opinions is it not and they are mine. Not my own conclusions saying we may not de list is somebodys own conclusion saying we will without action is FACT.
...he tried to help you months ago and you were grateful.
Just because it hasn't turned out as many of us expected, it's no reason to cook up theories...
I imagine Eric, like myself, is just tired of the whole thing and is "happy" to accept things are unlikely to move anytime soon. How about considering the theory that he, like many of us, was unable to average down and taking that at face value?
