  1. I totally understand, and we're hoping he'll be back later this week for question and answers.
  2. People! I understand your frustration, but I think maybe you've lost sight of Adam's position regarding DinarVets. Adam is not a Guru, he has never purported himself to be. He is vocal about not being a "rate and date" guy. You are right in that he spends most of his time answering questions in VIP. But that's not because those folks have paid for the privilege. The information he is giving concerns post-RV issues. Let me postulate why. No one, outside of a few top dogs in Iraq, knows what is going to happen (or when) regarding the fiscal situation in Iraq. Reading and digesting and discussing news and rumors doesn't bring the RV closer. How productive is it, really? What impact does it hold for us? If it is driving you to acquire more dinar based on the "closeness" of the event, then you're probably going to have as much luck in Las Vegas! This is not a speculation, it is an investment, and all you can do is wait for the outcome. I don't believe that Adam spends nearly as much time as many of DVets do dissecting the information that is floating about. I know that he spends hours and hours readying himself (and other serious investors) to make the most of the OUTCOME of the investment. Hoping that he will come here and give significant information is not his priority. I'm not suggesting that your questions are not significant, but I am suggesting that you will get more and better info by asking these questions in the open forum. We have some very astute folks here that would be happy to discuss these items with you. I'm sorry if you feel mislead, thinking that DV had a different focus. Though we provide news and discuss it and the rumors it frequently initiates, the major purpose is to ready folks for opportunities post-RV. Take a look at the forums that are different than you usually post in. We offer forums on the ISX, Warka banking, Forex, Wall Street and Penny Stocks, Gold & precious metals, foreign currencies, tax discussions, and investment opportunities. Please take this post as an explanation of the purpose of DV, not as an excuse for Adam's actions. I call this place my home, and that is because I am holding dinar and I want to maximize the outcome of this investment. I'm onboard through, not to, the finish line. I appreciate ALL of you and your presence here!! I just want us all to have realistic expectations. Sit back and enjoy the ride with your fellow Dinariacs. We can be an entertaining bunch when we're not throwing rocks from the windows of our glass houses!
  3. No problem at all. It's natural to be curious. Good intentions are called "good" for a reason!
  4. magicchris, this is something up to Adam personally. Not to be discussed in chat. Thanks for your support though.
  5. Mississippi Gal, that's what the goal is. The less drama, speculation, distractors the better. I challenge each of you to be part of the solution, not the problem!
  6. I'm keeping track of these questions to give to Adam tonight during chat.
  7. I'm going to add that there was a difference of opinion as to operational decisions here on DV, and some moderators were not willing to carry out those directives, and so decided to leave. I'm going to close this thread now because the continuing speculation and comment are not productive in light of our dinar invesment.
  8. Thank you, Old Constipate. Very insightful. (will you forgive me for giggling though? it's hard to keep a straight face with a screen name such as yours. )
  9. All you have to do is stop posting. As long as you do not share your password with anyone, you are secure.
  10. from Dictionary.com hu·mor   /ˈhyumər or, often, ˈyu-/ [hyoo-mer or, often, yoo-] –noun 1. a comic, absurd, or incongruous quality causing amusement: the humor of a situation. 2. the faculty of perceiving what is amusing or comical: He is completely without humor. 3. an instance of being or attempting to be comical or amusing; something humorous: The humor in his joke eluded the audience. sar·casm   /ˈsɑrkæzəm/ [sahr-kaz-uhm] –noun 1. harsh or bitter derision or irony. 2. a sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark: a review full of sarcasms. Let's try to avoid the sarcasm as to avoid fueling the fire of antagonism.
  11. Adam doesn't tend to answer questions posted in the regular forums, but I bet you'll get lots of responses from the other members. Good points made!
  12. Please reread the initial post, then show everyone that you are here to make this a positive environment. Any good dinar news to share today? I heard some interesting intel that maybe Sadr was intent on helping solve the Maliki-Allawi impass. Did you here that?
  13. Here comes the "lighten up" and "don't take everything personally" part.
  14. Interesting strategy, DinarMillionaire. I'll pass it by the Big Guy!
  15. There has been a distinct change in atmosphere here at DV over the last three weeks or so. There has been speculation as to why this has occurred, from other sites closing down, to lack of movement on the reval front. Whatever the cause, I have certainly seen two distinct types of posts lately, the IQD investor personally interested in being here to share information and excitement (or even frustration) at the situation in Iraq. The second is the poster who seems to have nothing to contribute to this community, but is strictly engaged in posting drivel and inciting others to confrontation. Adam has made clear that DV is an open community, and he is not interested in moderating with a heavy hand and feels strongly about giving everyone a chance to benefit from absorbing the info shared here. And I respect the reasoning behind his choice. However, that leaves us, the members of this site, to keep things moving in the direction that we want! Complaining or taking the bait are not constructive!! Ignore or shut down the trolls, quit taking offense at every little slight, that's what they want!! Be the bigger person, continue to converse with those who want what you do and ignore the creatures. Look inside and decide what you want DV to be, and by your own actions, make it that place! When enough of us take this approach, the cockroaches will have nothing left to feed on and will move on down the road. Whatcha say??
  16. Link please? Just because you say it, or someone told you, does not make it true.
  17. Kudos to you RSS! This needed to be said, and I don't think it could have been said better! I'm pinning this to the top for a while so that everyone can have the chance to read it, and hopefully take it to heart.
  18. I want to add my voice to what pleasantvalleySunday had to say. The moderators are fully committed to and actively working on dealing with this situation and others like it. But we are only here to support you, the DV family. Please let us know when things are getting out of hand so we can decide how to deal with it. Sometimes our choice of action is to let things progress through their natural course. That may have not been the best way to address this situation, but hindsight is 20/20. We have the best of intentions, but are only human. Thank you all for your support of BanG. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this group of people!
  19. BanG, you know how I feel about you and this situation. The only thing I can add is that I put my Kickin' Boots on this morning and I'm ready to take care of bidness!!!!!
  20. Thanks, TJ. We'll pass that by Adam and see what he says.
