After seeing the lazy "Value Walk" article trying to get people excited about vulnerability of the MS to theft I am increasingly worried about shady reporters and investors trolling this forum for hit pieces on TSLA. The author simply pulled forum entries and used them to generate click-through. I recognize that this is unavoidable but I don't want my input on this forum to be used without my permission outside of this forum. Also, the benefit that TSLA and Tesla owners get from free exchange of ideas is at risk if we are worried that free exchange will be used against our financial interest. I have seen forum signatures that say they may not be quoted without the author's permission but I can't imagine that simply posting that will be effective. Any one have any experience with this? I thought of changing my screen name to something that is so offensive or ridiculous that a reporter would avoid quoting me (something like "WSJsucksballs" or "85IQ"). Any ideas how to maintain control of our published opinions (other than not publishing)? It's hopeless, isn't it?
