    You serve your role here just fine (albeit a bit lackluster, but that's on you)...every community needs a troll. Keeps members on their feet, and provides some humor from time to time.

    Every community has its leaders, Its members, its contributors, its agitators.

    Your posts would suggest that you have given yourself the role of agitator in every thread you have been in.

    This thread is about Apple's stock performance in relation to the trolls who come to IMore to instigate. I suggest the nature of your posts would be welcomed without the combative posturing.

    You continue to document your investment in Apple as if that fact serves to override the words you have spoken since being here. Your feelings and agenda are so blatantly obvious from your very first post:

    "Just joined these forums and I see that Apple fans' reputation is justified..."

    All anyone has to do is click your post history and the theme of your contributions reek of trolling no matter how much you try and church it up and play the same damn victim role that you elude to in this thread.

    It totally drives me crazy when android fanboys come on apple forums, troll, and then say "oh, well I can troll all I want because I own an apple device"

    Don't dare to go to the Android Central forums, and try to defend Apple. I did that, and the mods PERMANENTLY banned me. It is ridiculous.

    That thread began with someone going out of their way to point out to a community devoted to iPhone users why the iPhone wasn't good enough and why he/she was leaving for android. A blatant thumbing of the nose to all he was leaving behind and an insinuation that the product many of us are using is in effect, inadequate. Yet, despite that, 11 of the first 19 comments prior to yours involved people wishing this person best of luck in his new endeavors. Majority of the other 8 were people who were clearly indifferent to his decision. And one post was from one of the nicest, level-headed members of the community who decided to try and inject humor into the thread, of which you quoted with your comment after clearly misunderstanding his stance.

    So no, I do not agree with you at all.

    Apple's been part of my investments off and on. I sold them during their slide but bought back low. I don't see selling any time soon and consider it relatively low risk with dividends being paid. WWDC should have eased anyone's concerns with what's coming with iOS 8 which of course sets the foundation for future products and a significant improvement in apps as well as new kinds of apps. WWDC should have also made Apple a nobrainer to buy if you still had concerns.

    Is Apple or iOS perfect? No way. It'd be nice to see certain improvements such as photo mgmt, file mgmt, etc. iMessage continues to be hit and some miss on whether something actually gets sent or received. I don't much care for what Apple is doing with AppleTV in recent months. But again, I go back to wwdc and have faith that they're committed to what was discussed there. Continuity. https://www.apple.com/ios/ios8/continuity/

    And THAT is what consumers and "the street" react to. The fact that they provide and improve on what consumers value. Tecchies don't increase a company's value, consumers buying the products and buying into the ecosystem do. And here is the evidence.

    I did answer your question, and quite clearly as well. You're the equivalent REDACTED, kicking up dirt and then saying "I have a couple of black co-workers, does this not make me part of your community?"

    You know exactly why you're being responded to in this light, and you know exactly why people have now generally labeled you a troll here. I can see, especially in the other thread about marketshare, that you're attempting to back track a bit so you can seem less obvious, but it's not going to work...

    Wow - ok. This is getting kind of creepy. I'm not sure whether to be flattered or a little scared that you put so much time into researching me, but it's certainly off topic.

    Let's continue like this:
    If you wish to continue discussion about the other thread, you should do it there.
    If you wish to talk about Apple's rising share price, here is a good place.
    If you wish to send insults and analyses of my past posts, I think private message would be most appropriate.

    Sometimes it's better just to disagree with someone rather than getting so obsessed.

    Oh it doesn't take much at all to find such things, especially when it comes to calling out someone else on their bs. That is clearly what inspired your cute little post as you danced around the rest. While I agree with you that spending even an ounce of time on anything dealing with you is a waste, it wasn't much time at all.

    You've been off topic since you've joined imore. Try taking in some lessons before giving them. It'll work wonders for you.

    Isn't it funny how people who like to instigate become sudden etiquette experts. Luckily in this forum such posters are not allowed to disrupt. There are no appeasers here.

    Very interesting.

    And finally, I find it hard to believe that this is necessary in a forum about mobile telephones, but I have no choice but to respond to this. Claiming some equivalence of a discussion about stock prices with KKK membership is so crass as to be almost beyond belief. Are you even aware of what you are saying? I will give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you aren't.

    I have reported this post to the forum administators. What they choose to do with it is up to them, but whatever the outcome, please try to keep some sense of perspective.

    I apologize for letting the worst in me come out publicly and for deviating from the topic. I will no longer play part in the distractions.

    As for the Apple stock rising, it is always an interesting animal to follow. Cook several times this year has spoken about his excitement for new products this year. He didn't go into detail of course, but was adament that Apple had some great things in the pipeline. We are approaching September now having not seen anything new through the first 8 months. So, either 4th quarter is going to be an amazing one, or we will be left scratching our heads as to what he was eluding to.

    Hopefully for investors, the two rumored versions of the 6 come to fruition, Apple conitinues to expand in other markets such as China and India, and the iWatch, new iPads, etc make their debuts. Either way, Apple is far, FAR from "doomed".

    All time high! But wait....I thought Apple was dead! They lose marketshare all of the time!

    PS: That Blackberry stock looks sad above the Apple stock haha
    Yes, BlackBerry stock is low in price/share but is growing month over month. So depending on how you look at it, BB is the better buy at the moment if trading daily. Apple is the better look term choice.
