Go your own way.

I need to acknowledge this again, if for no one but myself. Every time --every time-- I have bought a stock based on someone else's "tip" I've either lost money or gotten in too late and found myself committed to a long-term position.

I'm not bitching about this, mind you. It was fully my choice to act in each case. I'm just maybe I'll actually heed this warning next time such an opportunity or urge presents itself: Don't do it, you fool! Stick with your own research, your own instincts. This is not a game of whack-a-mole.

There, I feel better already.
