    It just shows how insecure you are that you need to call the people you disagree with "naysayers". Pretty trumpesk.
    BP , naysayer is someone who says no when you say yes.
    Nothing perjorative there - unlike calling someone insecure or Trumpesque. Of course being like Trump could be a positive depending on your views.

    I had an order in to sell a few more , but I've removed it now... still looks like someone is accumulating.
    For clarity, nothing I say is advice....

    Nice try, but maybe your English is not as good as winner seems to imply. Merriam Webster defines "naysayer" as "a person who habitually expresses negative or pessimistic views". Clearly name calling of somebody who just has a different view than the poster in question.

    BTW - the correct spelling of the difficult word you tried to use obviously would be "pejorative", coming from the Latin word "pejorare" (making worse) ... ;

    To answer Monty Python's famous question: this is something the Romans have done for the English ... they gave them amazing words they unfortunately find too difficult to properly use ;

    nothing worse than a spelling Nazi on the internet mate
    I'm just making the point you should play the ball not the man and not be such a nitpicker which you just seem to love doing and taking to a ridiculous extreme. chill dude, its the internet
