    Just look at any hobby out there. There is the subset of enthusiasts that say "You don't need ______, **cheaper model** does just fine" and this subset openly insults those that partake in the hobby using the higher priced goods.

    If his followers want to lose every dime they have on Tesla or crypto or whatever his next hustle is that is on them. Just like the Trumpers let them go broke chasing a dream...
    Reread your post. ;-)

    Apparently Melon was so insecure he put the number of times a tweet has been viewed on the display next to likes and retweets. I assume next he'll start shadow banning everyone who sees one of his tweets but doesn't hit the like button.

    DGF some of the responses to that tweet are great. The true believers are eating it up and the skeptics are mocking how it is Angostura a third less than the previous projections and in this economic climate there is no chance they got their number. They will say anything to stop a selloff.
    That says a lot about our society. God, I wish I could do things over again.

    Calm down it was a simple question. But since you brought it up what % of all shares were bought before vs. after the start of the slide?

    Losing 65% of your share price in exactly one year is one way to lead a company I guess...I mean it was overpriced before but not enough to warrant this type of correction.
    I'm not trying to minimize the drop, but when did he purchase the majority if his shares? The price was only around $30 at the start of 2020.
