How many threads are needed to discuss Fannie and Freddie?
« on: November 17, 2019, 06:06:44 PM »
We currently have two

https://www.cornerofberkshireandfairfax.ca/forum/general-discussion/fnma-and-fmcc-preferreds-in-search-of-the-elusive-10-bagger/
This one turned into a 1427 page discussion

https://www.cornerofberkshireandfairfax.ca/forum/general-discussion/is-it-just-me-or-are-there-actually-two-forums-on-this-site/
This one just started, with a different title, but essentially talking about the same thing

I remember SHLD used to be the longest thread in this investment board. Now Fannie/Freddie is steadily exceeding the pace, and has two threads instead of one!  :o

Muscleman,

I'm here very happy to inform you, that there actually exists - at least partly - a solution to your mental "1427"-condition. [ : - D ]

Definition by exclusion of the solution here :

1. You'll not be in need of a shrink/brain twister [advantage],
2. You'll not be in need of a coach, or any other kind of advisor [advantage],
3. [1. & 2. combined : It's all a DIY-solution [advantage, -well, sort of - it really depends on you personally]],
4. You don't have to inject any substance into your body [advantage, I would say ... - It would really be a pitty to see your six-pack running on five cylinders, ref. your avatar, wouldn't it?], &
5. You don't need to take any pills [advantage].

- - - o 0 o - - -

<break>

Curious? - I bet you are!

<end break>

- - - o 0 o - - -

Further triangulation of the solution to your "1427"-condition :

6. To the contrary of so many other treatments, there exists no "correct dose" [certainly an advantage, I would say],
7. 6. also implies that you can't OD on the treatment [great!],
8. With regard to dose, there is [almost, - sort of] total freedom of choice from "all shelters" [also great], but :

- - - o 0 o - - -

9. The cure is - as already mentioned - only partial, maxed out to 70% of your symptoms [and that really sucks!].

- - - o 0 o - - -

Here is the recipe :

a. Click on "Profile",
b. Next, in "Modify Profile", click on "Look and Layout",
c. Next, in "Messages to display per page", increase from forum default "15" to "50" ["maximum dose" - or whatever you prefer].

- - - o 0 o - - -

After that : Done. Your "1427" condition will instantly disappear, being reduced to a "428"-condition, or something like that.

- - - o 0 o - - -

I really hope this helps. [ ; - D ]
