Bulletin Board Moron of the week contest sponsored by (soon to be) jailbird Pirate Pete Landau

By Tom Winnifrith | Sunday 19 February 2017


Over the weekend I published documents and articles such as this one which make it clear that Pirate Pete Landau may well soon be about to "go to jail, do not pass Go, do not steal another £200 from shareholders, Go direct to jail." But say what you want about the Pirate he knew how to play Bulletin Board Morons. His chat up line by email to any moron who contacted him went like this:

"I am going to make you my special friend. Do not tell anyone about what I have to say but we are about to announce (insert completely bogus bit of good news here) and so your shares are going to roof it." Naturally the Moron would post this in full on iii, the LSE Asylum and ADVFN, his fellow morons would rush to buy, the shares would spike and Pirate Pete would get another bailout placing away. What was amazing was that after each piece of bogus news was shown to be 100% fake news, PP would serve up a new porky pie and the Morons would believe him yet again. In playing Bulletin Board Morons, Pirate Pete was a genius. And this it is in his honour we have another contest.

To enter, take any tweet or Bulletin Board posting from Sunday onwards which shows particular idiocy and simply paste it into the comments section below. The deadline for entries is midnight on Sunday 19th February.
