Brilliant link! It touches on some of the reasoning for which while I love TSE I don't agree with it's market forecast in the console wars. Thanks for pointing it out.
My question is this though: if this is true, and I seem to experience what you're saying: I used to find stocks worth buying into, feeling, like you said, proud I'm supporting something undervalued/great, now more and more often those stocks seem overvalued to me and I should be shorting, but then again shorting doesn't seem to be a very profitable thing at least in some lifetime stocks because of taking many weeks/months for a specific data to emerge oor hype to die out, then if this is all true, then this should result in many of the more veteran TSE traders moving into monthly/npd stocks... which indeed I've noticed, I myself have tried to fight this and stick to lifetime but seeing how for weeks at a time huge chunks of my cash were eaten up by a non-moving lifetime, it kinda results in a chiken & egg cyclic situation where with the big cash holders movign into shorter term stuff there's no more wise traders to regulate the long term lifetime stocks.
However when people from the outside (and inside too) look at TSE often they look for console war data, thus looking at the lifetime stocks... meaning that it's going to go more and more out of control (until a certain day when a big publisher just dishes out a fixed number when there's a huge market adjustment - but then it's pure data, no more use for TSE as a future market estimation tool if the estimation has been wildly out of control up to that point).
