WHAT THE FUCK!!! That this is even tolerated is a joke.... they're not even trying anymore to hide what's going on! It's almost as if they want to let you know "WE CAN!"

Absolutely agree, and not just with the silver issue; on every issue the message is we do it because we can. What are you gonna do about it? Well I guess that is going to have to be our decision

Last time I heard of him it was december 2010. You know, now that you mention it, if you put a beard on the man, lie him down and paint his forehead with red, he could easily look like someone I know....

They cancel trades on a daily basis. They manipulate every day because the can. The market is broken. Nobody Cares!

For students of history, you're in luck!  You get to relive history, up close and personal, with a front row seat.

Today's feature:  The Fall of the Roman empire (redux).

Yes, this is what it was like when the mighty Roman empire collapsed due to its own greed, corruption and internal rot.  The rich and powerful not only were unaccountable to their fellow citizens, but were actually protected by the system that should have been prosecuting their crimes.

If I remember correctly, it didn't end well. . . eight centuries of darkness.

Eight centuries of darkness is still better than eight eons of WWIII induced radioactivity. This time around there are those who have learned to split atoms and toy with scalar energy.

Anonymouse use a program (the LOIC) installed on the client machine that enables centralised command of those PCs to attack (flood) an interwebs target of choice.


What you're after is central command (of multiple trading accounts) to trade on an equivalent scale (downloads of the LOIC is in the millions)


Not knowing which sort of trading platforms (if any) could support this sort of account managment/coordination or trying to get this many people to hand over money to total strangers seems like a pretty tall order...


like an open source hedge fund or summin...?!?!

Better yet, stay totally out of the markets and keep buying physical PM's on a small continuous fashion. Good opportunity silver at $40 or under. I am starting to buy again.

Debe ser "Si podemos", verdad?

"Si se puede" es muy debil, y no precisamente lo equal de "Yes we can", yo creo.
Nunca lo he entendido, tengo que decir.

You are near.

"Si podemos" implies "nosotros" (yes we can)=Sujeto Implícito.

"Si se puede" has no subject (yes can be), but only talker & listener know about who they speak about=Sujeto Tácito

Anyone know any hackers in Anonymous?  We could use their help.

How about everyone sends the CFTC a flood of emails?

Got IRC?

I believe it's AnonOps


4chan /b/

(good luck with that ;^)

IRC is your best bet.  4chan is a joke/front page/recruitment tool to (not for or by) the [dis]organization, populated almost entirely by hangers-on and wannabes, the 1 million people who downloaded LOIC but have no idea who the real muscle of Anonymous is (which is an unknown number of hackers and hacker groups).  You used to be able to contact them almost directly on 420chan's /i/, but /i/ (stands for invasion, the forum formerly used to coordinate Anonymous' DDOS activities, long before Wikileaks and LOIC) became password-protected and located on a "secret" server about the time I stopped lurking at 420chan.

Try this link:

Although, in reality, you are contacting a group of hacktivists that operate under the Anonymous umbrella.  Oldschool /i/ Anonymous people were a bunch of anarchist pranksters and troublemakers who trolled relentlessly and tried to destroy websites/people's lives in the name of "lulz".  "Anonymous" itself is an amorphous concept that anyone can use to do anything, as long as they can convince enough of the /b/ crowd to go along with it.

What's this talk about two silver prices? tmosely is convinced this has happened and doesn't think anyone can get silver close to spot, in fact he dared me today to try and pick up silver close to's rare if you are retail and pick up any PM directly @ the spot, that's how the business works. Every product is in stock but the 1 OZ 9/11 commemorative coins.

$2 over @ ampex is pretty standard; 500 or more @ $1 over spot.

Umm i just looked and the cheapest rounds from apmex is 2.29 over spot. Eagles, maples, and phils are still 5 dollars over spot. Nice try.

Tue, 05/03/2011 - 19:11 | 1236188 bob_dabolina

I was off .29 cents. What the fuck ever, it's normal.

Not as many phils are minted that's why they are more expensive. I can find you collectible coins going for up in the hundreds but that's irregardless of supply/demand/comex defaulting.

Here, I found 1 OZ silver bars going for $360 over spot:

Comex must have defaulted!

Sir, might I have another!  Ha ha ha, you cant hurt me, got in too low!

Please, "irregardless" is not a word.  Irrespective, yes, regardless, yes.  Well, maybe in the tweet and text generation, not for us ol' timers.

It appears in a wide range of dictionaries including: Webster's Third New International Dictionary of the English Language Unabridged (1961, repr. 2002)

Guess it just depends what dictionary you use.

But I thought this thread was about silver. I guess we can correct our grammar/syntax as well though, that's always a hoot of a time.

All quoting a dictionary means that many people misuse the term...  it's a popularity contest more or less...  and, in this case, the popular term is incorrect.  At some point, without rules, we lose a language.

Than why don't we all just speak latin?

Because we lack the mental horsepower to speak clearly and with the deep conviction and clarity that any classic language demands.

English is a lose lose all the way down the rabbit hole.
