Notes from Underground: It's called crowdfunding when we do it

By Pizza Hardman Darren Atwater | Sunday 5 March 2017

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Some of the bulletin board morons have mocked ShareProphets for asking for donations to the Fighting Fund, accusing Tom of having the begging bowl out. 

The truth is: it works and the alternative is terrifying. ShareProphets readers have seen their donations to the Fighting Fund used to defend against Sefton in court (Tom won), defend against Aiden Early in court (round one, Tom won), and scare off myriad others before it made it to the courthouse doors. We expose the bad guys and then take them down. If they come back for a second helping they will get it in spades as someone is about to find out. 

If you support the work that ShareProphets does, and want to help us in court if needs be, then please take a moment to donate to the fighting fund here.

For those keeping track, the first non-Tom article on the leaderboard technically is It's time to consider Premier Oil as a longer term recovery play by Gary Newman at  #24.
