My concern is that we convince ourselves that there was some greater deal out there somewhere, and the longer we repeat it to ourselves we really start to believe it --- despite having nothing other than our imagination to confirm its accuracy. Over time we actually start to forget that there wasn't any actual basis to support our belief and we begin to accept it as fact. Then we start quoting our own memories as fact and the myth behind the trade starts to grow, and other people start to believe it as well. Until one day, 10 years from now, we have an entire subsection of people, essentially quoting a rumor we made up in our own head, as if it were something that was actually reported. You laugh, but we've done this before. We create our own HFBoards urban myths.
