I have a quick question for you if you have the time and I promise not to waste your time with any replies.  I'm relatively new to the board and assumed it was a place for people to come and discuss investing topics as equals.  Your last reply to me seemed to suggest something a bit different (kind of a teacher student dynamic and not equals).  Is this so?  If yes, I can honestly say I didn't realize this before. 

 

I would be more than happy to move on if that is the structure, and again, my apologies for not being aware of this sooner.

 

Yours

Jack, I have no interest whatsoever in continuing this discussion.  It really doesn't matter what view you had of this board...you just don't go and piss on someone else's lawn.  This board will run as it always has except for one change: 

 

Going forward I would ask all boardmembers contact me directly either through the message system on here, or by email at sanjeevparsad@shaw.ca , if you have any operational ideas or issues with the board.  Any posts that are put up discussing operational or administrative issues will be removed.  Feel free to contact me at anytime and I'll respond to your queries explaining if it is something we can change, augment or eliminate.  And if not, then at least I'll give you a direct explanation.

 

The reason being, I don't want to expose boardmembers to this type of argumentative posts anymore, and I don't have the energy.  I was in Vegas right now with Alnesh, my brother and some buddies to celebrate various upcoming birthdays, including mine.  I spent time during this vacation dealing with this crap, and it did put a bit of a damper on things for me.  I'm not going to waste another iota of my time explaining to a handful of individuals why their needs don't outweigh the entire board's, while voluminous posts are made with things getting personal from both sides.  This board was not created for that purpose.  Thanks very much!

Sanj, Happy birthday....I looove this board kudos to you for keeping the  discourse at a civil level. One observation is it just me or do value guys generally seem to be more gentlemanly in their temprement. It seems that momo guys are just ruthless in their take no prisoners approach to the world and investing.

Things are very tough there.  The hotels and casinos are relatively busy, but nothing like a couple of years ago.  Home prices are down significantly and people feel poorer there.  Deals galore wherever you go, and if you push it, you can find some more discounts.  North Americans seem to be accounting for much of the business...staying close to home for their vacations.  Fairly easy to get reservations at the best restaurants these days, while the lower end restaurants were enjoying bustling business. 

 

Alot more people seem to have a hustle going now...cab drivers, door men, concierges, everyone.  Everyone knows who can do this for you and that for you.  All of them are really clamouring for your business.  I always leave Vegas a little perturbed.  Literally the slogan of "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" applies to this city.  I can only imagine what thoughts Munger would have on society after witnessing the debauchery that goes on in some parts of this town.  Cheers!
