The Mystery of the Disappearing Exclamation Points
Over the years, I checked in every now and again, expecting either the company or the community to be long dead. In 2000, the stock spiked from about $12 and change to nearly $40 — well over $100, split-adjusted — making the Wavoids, as one of them put it on Ragingbull, “dizzyyyyyyyyyyy.” —Danny Hakim, "That Ship Will Come in, Right?"

This story is also very important because it contains this quote:
Some Wavoids can be a little sensitive about their plight. After I told the Wavoids I was writing another article about the company and its boosters, one poster offered this reply last month: “NNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!”
Now—if anyone saw the print edition, s/he would have seen that this online version is less exciting. In the paper, there were four lines of Os—and over 140 exclamation points!
