Chilly,  you are correct that the number of "ifs" is a bit tedious and the market response to production increase is disappointing.  The one sad part to large share count is excessive day traders.  That can be good when times are good but it sucks when times are rough.   I often wonder to myself if any of the price control is being done by Sprott ... just to teach Lenic a lesson.

The present vibe on the board is very similar to the First Majestic board 1 year before they took off.  Food for thought.

I agree with you that alternative thoughts are good when backed with appropriate rhetoric  .... however stupid comments are just that . . . stupid.

Good luck longs,  may 2013 see precious metals gain in appreciation and may Japan print gazilions of yen.
