That's an awfully strong accusation you've made their, submitter. Got any proof of that?

Because a 15% increase in Facebook's stock price is worth a hell of a lot more than a billion dollars.

All is well as long as the rich keep getting richer.

Subby said a FEW billion. Not a billion. Unless you are trying to say that 15% is worth a few Trillion instead.


/Not Subby.
//And I thought it was public knowledge that Facebook is creating bots to impersonate people?
///I read it on FARK, after all.

Was that first sentence a question?

Wouldn't Grammar Hell be a proper noun?

You mean people still use Facebook? That's so last year.

You were too excited to jump on subby about a perceived mistake.  Generally, when people do that, they're so excited to "get" someone, they pay less attention to what they are writing because they only want to criticize someone else before someone else has a chance; the "ME FIRST" weirdness that happens on message boards.

Their/they're/there, its/it's, etc. Common issues in these scenarios.

shiat, this doesn't even need to be an inside job. Buy a few million call options, hire a few Chinese to spoof a few million accounts that are active and clicking on advertisers to make FB look like it's working, then exercise your options when you're in the money.

It's a lot friendlier than that guy selling the puts on Herbal Life and insisting the whole company get shut down as a the pyramid scheme it is. They couldn't sell to the whites or the blacks any more so they moved on to the Mexicans. They've run out of people to fleece and the whole thing is about to Enron.
