    Default Mis Using VERBS

    when the words, like could , should, might , imminent, anyday now,and lets not forget the ever popular "DONE DEAL" you have to remember, these words are forms of verbs, the sad part is that the definitions of most of these VERBS is seems unlikely or doubtful.
    The reval has not happened, the ISX has not opened, that I know of , I think we should look really hard when rumors are ****ed as facts lets look to the verbs used in the post and also look at the posters track record for yelling wolf.
    I personally blame myself for buying into the hype as I have alot of dinar and I want the reval very badly as all of you , I will after the past ten days of rollercoaster rides stick to the CBI and the think tank

    actually the rv has happened. it is happening now. most people are too blind or too stubborn to see it. the rv started on 11/02/06 and continues thru today. it is a slow process. enjoy it as you would a slow elevator ride to the top.

    Default Whose yelling wolf. . . .

    Rumors are just that - rumors. They are made from reading the Think Tank and other info and drawing conclusions. Rarely do two people draw the same conclusion, much less the 24,000 + that belong to this forum. You can't blame someone for posting a conclusion (rumor) for it not being fact. Yes the poster is certain of their conclusion and are excited about it. But the poster of the rumor has no control over the iraquis who todate have not met deadlines, postponed things over and over, making the possibiity of the rumor go up in smoke. Had they infact met the deadlines, some of the rumors would have been dead on. Should we watch our verbs - probably. But if I were certain of something based on info I had, I would use very positive words and strong verbs. If I was wrong, I could/would accept that, re-readand go over my info and try to figure out where I went wrong in drawing my conclusion. But I wouldn't stop drawing conclusions or taling about them. We also read into a rumor waht we want to. Done deal may have applied to something that was verified a few days later - not the actual RV. So the reader also has a responsibility - not to read more into the rumor than was posted. JMHO

    Agreed. I'll keep saying it. If somebody heard a rumor that the reval was a done deal, than that's the rumor. Expect it to be wrong, but don't blame the person who passed it along.

    If someone told me that the Dinar would reval at $5.00 usd per dinar and I passed along a rumor that the reval would be $1.00 usd per dinar, I would be manufacturing a rumor. It doesn't matter that I believe the amount of the reval that I heard from someone to be absurd, that's what I heard.

    Most people can't be trusted, so we should have laws against guns, which most people will abide by because they can be trusted.
