if they also agree Remus , Chikot and Will Schaarrand as witnesses
I recommend you don't take this bet, Steve! I don't like how Winsor is replying to the very normal request of opening up the trading history. Why should you write even a 'sorry, you were right' post if he does that? It's your right to ask for transparency!
Just think of the amount of time it would take him to make the account public, versus the amount of time to type all the posts since then. I'm amazed to his reluctance to do as you asked, since in my view it makes him look like not willing to deal nicely with 'difficult' customers. What happens if you invest with him, have a losing period, and ask for clarifying questions, to help you decide whether it's time to pull the plug?
I just read the posts leading to this 'dispute', and what I see is the following:
- Steve asked why the account was marked private; Winsor said he withdrew funds; Steve said that's not a reason to mark it private, account can stay public and put something like 'closed' in the title; several other people joined the conversation and agreed with Steve (btw, I also agree)
- Winsor replied with long posts since the original request, on topics he cared about (advertising his work), and very short posts actually dealing with the request; those posts I read as having an 'if you don't like it, get lost, I'll get other clients anyway' attitude
- Winsor is now trying to make Steve lead an advertising campaign by writing a 500-word post, in which I assume he wants Steve not only to say how right Winsor was all along, but also how well his systems are performing (500 words is a lot...)
- Winsor is calling Steve liar ('not a man of his words'), 'full of it', cheap (as in 'Steve does not have the money to invest in Winsor's accounts anyway), while Steve did not use such verbal aggression in any of the previous conversations
Btw, I met Winsor about 1 year ago, and briefly invested in 3 of his accounts (Haley, Mellisa, Sienna). I happen to catch a very poorly performing period. I decided to stop trading his systems because even over the long term I did not like the amount of potential profits in relation to the monthly fees. I did not look at his systems since then, being focuses on other things.
Those are my 2 cents, since you asked me to be a witness to this bet.
