Day Traders Strike Back

Here are the subject lines of some of the many e-mails I’ve received since my attack on day trading :

“Daytrading assault””So, why IS James Surowiecki a writer?””typical journalist fool””you’re uneducational story””YOUR THE REAL SUCKER”

“Lies, damn lies, and statistics”

“Surowiecki is a waste of time”

And here are excerpts from the opening lines of those same e-mails:

“This guy James Surowiecki is a jerk.”

“In regards to your article by a so-called writer”

“You are worng and extremely unfair. Most day traders are profitable.”

“reactionary and parochial—typical liberal”

“irresponsible journalism at its finest”

“typical leftwing nonthinking ignorance”

Many thanks to all.
