about: Stopped coming here after some comments of mine here on HFT were downvoted by nasty, abusive and aggressive financial types. A couple of years after my comments appeared, Ivy League economics professors made the same points. But enduring the animadversion of pompous know-nothings while waiting for the endorsement of Harvard University professors is hardly worth it.

Let me indulge in some schadenfreude. You may assume, for any startup S that posts something like, "S is shutting down," that I have posted the comment, "Hurray!" Since you cannot downvote this "about" comment, and as I am only declaring that you may assume that I posted "Hurray!" though I will never actually do so; and as the opportunity cost of commenting is prohibitive, you have nothing to downvote.
