I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

The following 2 users say Thank You to ThatManFromTexas for this post:
I'd say that is too simple a statement and too broad. There are mistakes and then there are mistakes.
In the context of this particular thread about that website I think you are falsely extending Tim Allen's success to someone who hasn't in any way redeemed himself - A convicted drug dealer who is now selling day trading scam on the internet.
The pictures and words you used are of Tim Allen but we are not discussing Tim Allen so it is an false equivalency.
That is the reason that I did not post any pictures, pictures always convey a negative of positive information and this is all false. @redratsal managed to play a trick on me, when he started his thread: "I believe I can fly".
I saw the video showing that man flying by using some sort of wings, and without thinking about it, I thought that it was real.
In fact it was a fake. I do not conclude that I shoud never trust an Italian and not believe in Flying Dutchmen, but that I should be more careful to base my judgement on images or videos. What @ThatManFromTexas has posted is quite suggestive, as would have been a mugshot of the website owner. In fact, any image distorts reality.
It was my fault of having brought up the subject. The website itself and the services proposed is what counts today. And I do not think that the website is a professional trading website.

You are trying to make a joke at my expense by being anal/fastidious (why did it have to be a German?) but my statement still stands. You judge an individual on his or her own merit not what someone else did in their situation.
No I was not making fun of you. I meant what I was writing. Pictures and videos distort our perception of things, and journalists (and in this case the lying dutch man) take advantage of that. TMFTs message was also implicitly suggesting that everybody who has done something wrong can easily convert to a glorious character .... However, this requires unlearning bad habits, also see trading books written by Brett Steenbarger.
