A couple of days ago I noted how the London South East Bulletin Board ( aka the LSE Asylum) appeared to be heading towards insolvency - HERE. It is the fate which, almost, invariably happens to companies that hire Zak, the Sith Lord, Mir. For Judas is also Jonah. And now a closer examination of its historic numbers shows that the crisis may be far worse than even we thought. Timber!!!!!

I find myself back in London ahead of a big event tonight as I explain HERE. So I am working at the pizza place now known as Wedge Issue and run by hipster Pizza Hardman Darren Atwater. It is most excellent and I commend it to you all if you are in Clerkenwell, although I am not sure I get this hipster business at all. I'm getting old. In the main podcast I look at why the LSE Asylum just does not work. In terms of stocks I cover Independent Resources (IRG), Nyota (NYO), FastForward (FFWD),Challenger (CHAL), the joke regulation one sees on the Standard List, Regency Mines (RGM) and some coal assets some folks think will go into the joke that is "New Worthington".

Advanced Oncotherapy (AVO) is, as you know, utterly desperate to create buying interest in its shares so that death spiral shysters Bracknor can dump £13.7 million of equity onto the market over the next year. That is not going well and so Advanced today boasts that it has paid investment analyst prostitutes for hire, Hardman, to publish a glossy note. This report is so unbelievably unbalanced that I can only assume that Hardman outsourced the work to the Bulletin Board Morons on the LSE Asylum. Folks can see through this shite and the shares are down by a penny at just 40p bid which is very bad news for Advanced as explained HERE.

Repeatedly, during the past six months, the London & South East Bulletin Board ( aka the LSE Asylum) has removed posts within minutes which offered any criticism at all of Cloudtag (CTAG). Right up to the point that shares in the fraud were suspended on AIM no dissent was allowed. But it appears that the LSE does believe in free speech when it comes to inciting violence against me. My crime, natch, calling out the fraud and so yesterday the post below appeared.

Ah diddums all those morons on the LSE Asylum who have spent months insulting and abusing me over Cloudtag (CTAG) are all of a sudden feeling a bit poor now that shares in their darling little fraud have crashed and been suspended. What is needed is a charity event to bail them out. And how about it involves me getting beaten up?

The Cloudtag (CTAG) debacle has provided plenty of ammo for the BB Morons as the fraud has unravveled. As you can see HERE there were plenty of quality entries in last week's contest. But the winner, a first time winner, is Ian M Smith who spotted this gem from someone who reckons that the charlatans who run the LSE Asylum are now in on the global shorting conspiracy. Well done Ian who posts:

Having previously noted the rise and rise of AIM-listed events manager Parallel Media (PAA), whose shares shot up from 16p to peak at 46.5p on no news (with four trades going through at 48p), I see that the rocket launchers are out again. My thinking remains as before: if you hold it is time to look skywards, be thankful and sell.

Last week's Bulletin Board Moron contest also allowed entries of mindless Donald Trump bashing. Pizza Hardman Darren Atwater did his very best to win via that route but sadly even at his deluded best he could not compete with the savants of the LSE Asylum. There were a number of strong entries, as you can see HERE, but the winner is one that shows the censorship policies of the LSE Asylum up for what they are. Truly that Bulletin Board is a place beneath contempt.

Oh, perhaps I shall have another small slice of stilton and another glass of port said London's worst Nomad Roland "fatty" Cornish to himself, as he tried to bury the memories of his visit from the ghostly apparition who was even scruffier than Tom Winnifrith. Clearly not a scholar or a gentlemen he repeated to himself several times although whether this was a reference to the ghost or Winnifrith was unclear at this point. Fatty did not enjoy being haunted but, after just one more "small" slice of Stilton and a small port Fatty decided it was time for beddybyes and headed up stairs with his faithful, if flatulent, poodle Stuttard following on behind.

Old Gervais is a credible fund manager so what on earth is he doing appearing on a new video show "The spiv Olympics" produced by the LSE Asylum? Its host is Sith Lord Zak "I will do anything, tip any crap for money" Mir, guest one is some barrow boy from low life bucket shop Optiva and the third guest is an uber-spiv from the Asylum itself. So far in three days only 480 folks have watched this shite and Darren and myself are two of them. But Zak needs the money so needs the Asylum to think he has a mass audience so do your bit to assist a poor chartist.

Cynical Bear has discovered a gem of madness on the LSE Asylum.

The demise of Motive TV (MTV) & the Slater & Gordon (SGH) car crash were obvious triggers for some of the stupidest folks on this planet to talk shite on Bulletin Boards last week.

There were numerous splendid entrants for last week's BBM of the week as you can see HERE but there could only be one winner.

Will today's suspension of shares in Motive TV (MTV) stop the morons who own this stock from dreaming about the golden tickets they own? Will administration stop them?

They still don’t get it. The FRC has thanked me for exposing fraud at Quindell (QPP) and the former board are being investigated by the SFO as well (it can thank me later for the assistance I have provided). Yet according to some Quindell shareholders on the LSE Asylum I am the guilty party, the devil incarnate. And boy were they looking forward to my day in the High Court today…don’t tell the morons it is off as at least one admits to going along last time to cheer on my then opponent Aiden Earley.

Is there no limit to the stupidity of some folks who post comments about shares on Bulletin Boards? And why do the morons all appear to own the same stocks in their portfolios of death? Worthington, Afren, Daniel Stewart, Quindell - will they all pile into Rangers FC when it relists? Probably only if Rob Terry takes a stake. In this shortened week I invite you to post the daftest and most inane comment you find about shares on twitter or on a Bulletin Board in the comments section below. The deadline is Sunday at midnight.

The Bulletin Board Morons were flying last week with shareholders in Quindell, Daniel Stewart and Worthington once again showing themselves to be the most deluded fools out there. One suspects that many folks hold all three gems and are also lapping up Rob Terry's latest fraud, Knob Park Estates ( sorry I meant Quob Park). Your entries for Bulletin Board Moron of the week were as ever spectacular, can you do better this week? The entries last time were magnificent covering a full spectrum of idiocy. You can see all the entries HERE.

The Bulletin Board Morons are noted sometimes for their denial (Afren delisted today, is there hope), sometimes for their sheer stupidity (Worthington Golden ticket holders) and sometimes for their ability to come up with conspiracy theories which are just the other side of insane (Quindell) and sometimes for letting bigotry or a blue mist overcome reality (Rangers FC). And that brings us to last week’s winning Bulletin Board Moron of the week.

Afren may be in administration but some Bulletin Board Morons see upside for the shares. Other morons want Chris Oil to join the board at Sefton while others regard the FCA and SFO enquiries into Quindell as good news for Rob Terry. Meanwhile Worthington news must be imminent but for the morons no news is good news while news will also be good news. You can’t make this stuff up. And so let’s have another contest this week, as the Victorians visited asylums to peer at the insane we marvel at the Morons in the LSE and ADVFN asylums. You can see the full variety of insanity from last week HERE - The winner of last week’s contest was Juicin Drumroll with this gem from the LSE Asylum:

Oh well you cannot say that you were not warned often enough on these pages. To the Bulletin Board Morons who abused us and said we did not know what we were talking about as we warned of impending doom, we say “enjoy poverty peasants” because it really is all over for Afren (AFR). And that is official, although no doubt on the LSE Asylum someone will spin news of administration as a buying signal for the shares.

At the start of the New World Oil & Gas (NEW) forward selling fiasco Liam was cited as being one of the “innocent” forward sellers, who “accidentally” got himself embroiled in this mess. In fact, Liam was the primary example used to paint a human face on perhaps one of the most reckless market acts ever witnessed on AIM. Unfortunately for those who chose Liam as the forward sellers’ poster-boy, he has not behaved well. Posting under the username “Awkward Turtle” across social media, Liam is quite removed from being an “ordinary” private investor. Mr Turtle, as it is perhaps more appropriate to call Liam, is a small, yet revealing, part of something far more sinister and well coordinated.

We have often criticised Nomad Roland “fatty” Cornish for his role in the debacles at New World Oil & Gas (NEW), Gate Ventures (GATE) and other AIM casino omnishambles stories. Now he is also acting for Rob Terry’s Daniel Stewart (DAN). But in acting for all these POS enterprises and for signing off on so many comically misleading RNS statements, fatty does have a function. He keeps these joke Companies on the AIM casino and that gives the folks on the LSE Asylum something to froth about. Heck, I forgot – fatty also used to act for Aiden Earley’s Worthington (WRN).

Shrooom…another lump of sugar said the dormouse?. If you insist. I took the tab as I prepared to read the latest RNS from Old Mother Worthington Group (WRN). Sitting on a tangerine cloud a group of mad hatters posted comments franticly on the LSE asylum. Actually I haven’t taken any drugs for years but every time I read a release from Worthington I feel that I am having some sort of ghastly flashback. Is that Doug Ware I see chatting to the Queen of Hearts. Off with Tom Winnifrith’s head! No it was not the Queen, it was Aiden Earley or was it Craig Whyte? Anyhow, yesterday’s RNS was mind blowing.

In light of today’s disastrous news from Slater & Gordon the Bulletin Board Morons will be in a frenzy convincing themselves that this is great news for Quindell (QPP). I am also working on a Worthington (WRN) expose - in case you had not guessed it is a 100% fraud from top to bottom - so I sense that the morons will serve up some gems this week. Let us celebrate the best of them. Now I realise…

I sense that a good number of shareholders in Quindell (QPP) also have stock in Afren (AFR) and Worthington (WRN). If the last of those three is ever unsuspended it is lining up to replace Quenron in my affections when Rob Terry’s creation goes bust. It truly is a POS built on sand.

Mr Rhys Griffiths of law firm Field Fisher would have to be a prime contender for this award. He reckons that I have invented a time machine and also made up a quote for me to support his mad thesis. Sadly he did not post his ramblings on a Bulletin Board but sent them in a joke lawyer’s letter to me on behalf of the asylum known as LSE.co.uk so he is ineligible. But in honour of the buffoons who paid him £500 an hour to produce such piffle the competition is back.
