This uplift has helped me to curb my semi-addiction to the comments section(s). Fun guys and gals.
SA mod: Feel free to delete my account.
The problem is that this will lock out most investors, and the comments on the articles will dry up. The comments for me were the essential part of Seeking Alpha. As important as the articles. With less people participating, the comments will drop down significantly, and that makes Seeking Alpha a less valuable website to me for stock information. I have participated in stock forums since 1990 on Prodigy, so I know how important the comments section can be.
Looks like pretty much every "analysis" article now required PRO. SA just became useless.
