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.
