I say things on Twitter


The top three most visited IKN posts this week are... reverse order:

Third Place: "A quick thought on the gold/silver ratio". It really was nothing but a quick thought as well, but for some reason it took off and got far more hits than it deserved (even more than that "Tahoe/Lake Shore deal in trouble" post). I'll never cease to be mystified about what's popular and what's not on the interwebnetpipes.

Second Place: "PretiVm (PVG) ( forgot to thank its ex-COO". There's something wrong at PVG and you don't need me to tell you that, just look at its share price underperformance through this current rally. Supposedly a full-on World Class project and with all the rah-rah backing you could wish for, it can't catch a bid in a bucket at the moment.

First Place: "Lithium X (LIX.v): Never underestimate the power of a Frank Giustra bullshit pump during a market bull period". Ahhh Frank, you're always good for a popular post. But on this specific occasion I can tell you exactly why this post got a whole bucketful of hits (and it wasn't for you Tommy H, you don't even register on the map). It's because IKN is the only place that's saying out loud what thousands of mining sector people are thinking.

A sad fact: The serious side of the Canadian mining world is saying the same thing about this scam pump but they're all too chickenshit to say anything in public. It's pathetic how sycophantic kowtow merchants cheer on IKN and send in mails to say "oooh Otto you're absolutely right about LIX" but not one has the guts to stand up and speak truth to power, say what's blatantly obvious about LIX in public, preferring to hide behind your laptop screens and cower in your cubicles. You're all too worried about pissing off Big Frank (metaphorically speaking only, of course) and getting your career put on stall. How you dare accuse Giustra of doubletalk and sleight of hand when if given the same chance you'd do exactly the same is beyond me.
