Did IHub Pump and Dump Drive Miami Prosecutor to Violence?

Sure this is speculative, but I blog from my parents' basement in my PJ's, so I'm entitled.

Today's Miami News reports that veteran Dade County prosecutor David Ranck was suspended after an altercation with a pizza delivery lady resulted in his punching her out.

Now granted, and as anybody who has ever read a Carl Hiaasen novel knows, life in Mr. Flagler's city can be stressful on a good day, but what could possibly goad a proper, gated-community-dwelling public servant into attacking a pizza lady?

We think we know, and it wasn't the anchovies.

Despite criminal indictments of Investor's Hub founder Matt Brown and a gaggle of fellow scammers the site continues to be infested with a variety of pump and dump artists operating with seeming impunity.

Like the Chapel Hill based JTV Management and Consulting, LLC, of which the repulsive and undisclosed shill Tina Marie (tmstocks on IHub) is a principal.

One of her recent promotions took took the obscure, barely trading stink sheet Papa Bello's Enterprises to a volume of over a billion shares in a month, and a brief 50% increase in price, which of course subsequently collapsed. The hype was based on expansion of the pizza hawker via franchises and, of course, the fabulously obscure China market (do you know why cheese is not big in China? Most adult Asians are lactose intolerant). This is what a pump and dump looks like.

Standard IHub tactics in the illegal promotion are spelled out in Brown's indictment: wash trades, censorship of dissenting board posts, private messages purporting to have insider information, &C, and dear Tina, a board "moderator" was in the thick of it with her faithful companion shills "Rawnoc" and "Brig".

Clearly Ranck was sucked into the pump, and developed an irrational hatred for all things Italian. There is no other logical explanation for his behavior.

And there is no logical explanation for IHub parent company ADVFN allowing Brown to remain in his position, and to continuing to allow this slimeball message board to continue in the active pump and dump business.

Cheese does not have lactose:

The higher lactose content of mozzarella than parmesan explains why a person may not be able to eat pizza but might be able to enjoy pasta with some parmesan with minimal problems.

Wow. You finally get a commenter on your blog, and you call him a moron! Boy that's the way to build a blog, eh? You must be a real sweetheart.

You are also wrong:

Lactose content of Cheese (1 oz.)

Cottage (1/2 cup) 0.7-4g

Cheddar, sharp 0.4-0.6g

Swiss 0.5-1g

Mozzarella, part skim, low moisture 0.08-0.9g

American, pasteurized, processed 0.05-4g

Ricotta (1/2 cup) 0.3-6g

Parmesan may be even lower, but the lactose content of ALL cheeses is essentially negligible.

There are many other reasons some people cannot eat cheese, but it's not the lactose.

Really, dude. I actually sort of know you, and we agree on almost everything, but you are such an a-hole sometimes.

Even if you were right about lactose, which you weren't, calling one of your very few commenters a "moron" right off the bat is just monumentally stupid. Someone actually took the time to read your post and then make a comment, and that's the way you treat them?

Just what exactly are you trying to accomplish, other than inflating your ego?

I won't be back again, so don't bother responding.
