[QUOTE]Originally posted by IWISHIHAD: [QB] Below is a quote from another board about the sad reality of believing to much. Quote: "reason I'm beating myself up(many have said privately I shouldn't) is because I continued to believe the timelines given would be met. My enthusiasm and confidence rubbed off on many others, causing them to purchase stock at higher prices than today. It makes me sick thinking I might play a part in people losing money, or in losing positions that keep them up at night. I field a large number of calls each day about JBII. You wouldn't believe some of the predicaments some people are in. One person has cancer and has their final investment dollars in here as a hope in something. Others have put their retirement funds here at higher prices than todays close(because they didn't save enough to retire properly). I have played a small part in that, and it kills me to know how they are feeling, and I feel a great responsibility to them to have very sound judgement. What do you tel someone in this situation? I think John is going to pull P2O off, and prove his claims, but there are some very troubling things here. It makes it hard to tell people to hold on, we'll be fine. I've told so many people about JBII that my name is going to be MUD if it doesn't pan out. It's humbling to see the thunderclouds building recently, and I can only hope they'll just blow on by. I don't sleep well knowing that people are in these situations. My biggest problem is this: My 8th JBII post, and first week of being in JBI, I said this. http://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=40070854 It was in response to an email that John had sent someone about how the 10Q was going to leave the flippers in the dust, and how they would always file on time, and even early. What happened was they ended up filing late, and the flippers were most certainly not gotten rid of. The very original website had a business plan section. It said the large 20 ton processor would be running in August, I think. So, John thought he could go public in April. and four months later have a processor in commercial production. It then said that franchises would be in operation the following months. What was he thinking? It was said to us that the processor would take about 3 weeks to setup and 2 weeks to tweak before going into production. Then, the story changed, and had to go to IsleChem. That totally made sense, but that was a change in the story. We were told that it would take maybe two months, but felt it would be ready by X-mas. It took 4-5 months! Again, understandable when you look in hindsight, but why such high expectation building? I just can't understand how someone never learns the lesson that things take longer than you think, and that eventually the failed expectations are going to nail your credibility. JBII has been in the put up or shut up phase for 5 months now, due the expectations being built. John talks about loyal shareholders, building for the longterm, but he build such huge expectations that can't be delivered upon in the time he sets. These comments get him in trouble with Q&A sessions after vacation, 3 shifts of tapes running, and media event one week after AGM. Wall Street doesn't take kindly to this sort of behavior, because it's the pattern that scam artist use. I don't think John is a scam artist, but I think it looks really bad on him that he consistently makes this mistake. I can only hope the reason is he just caves to the pressures of being a CEO with certain business plan execution deadlines and pressures. I love and hate the F%$# it attitude John has towards Wall Street and those who have concerns about JBI. Love that he is confident he has the goods, but hate that he takes it so personally that people are skeptical of something so amazing. I have brought concerns of some people who have taken a major position in JBI to John before, only to have him say, if they don't like it, they don't have to invest. I have this internal reaction of, but John, they are invested. These are real concerns, why do you refuse to even acknowledge them? Acknowledge them, or say why they shouldn't be a concern. Drop the ego. I don't think we would have as violent of swings if expectations were managed better, and if communications were actually geared for the long term, all along. John will say he is building this for the long term, have patience, but then give a timeline and expectation for it all to happen to tomorrow. I'm ready for JBI to hire more highly qualified and talented people for key roles to take things off of John's plate. He's going to kill himself if he keeps juggling as many balls in the air at one time as he does. He needs to learn how to delegate, and focus on the things he is best at. Stop taking concerns personally, and actually listen to the feedback that comes in. Skeptics can be overly harsh with an emotional reaction, but there is something to be learned from the message. Believe it or not, sometimes there is actually a very good message from it if you can weed through the emotional BS. It may be a mixed blessing that JBI isn't on a higher exchange at this time. Maybe, the company can straighten itself out now during the challenges. I can only guess that it has taken so long because NASDAQ and institutions can't figure out JBI. Maybe the company will actually take it to heart, and make the proper changes. It would have been a lot more difficult to convince people to do it if they were already on a higher exchange and had the permit. I could be wrong, but I have thought for a couple weeks now that NASDAQ won't list JBI until they show a permit and run ticket. It makes sense if you put yourself in NASDAQ's shoes. I don't care about the uplisting, I care about the permit. Uplist means nothing if you never have a permit and prove the claims. Anyway, I continue to hold and believe in John. It just doesn't make sense to me that this is a scam. Never has. IsleChem is not in on the conspiracy, as has been pointed out lately. You don't put your family, friends, neighbors, and local residents in if it is. The real risk is that the proper personnel and infrastructure isn't put in place. Hopefully, there are no further unforeseen delays to getting this permit. It does worry me that we weren't allowed to see plastic going in, and oil flowing out at the tour. Are they having trouble loading plastic? Is the machine ready for the stack test? Do modifications need to be made? Do they need to build another version? Can they run version 1 while building version 2? All problems that I feel confident John can tackle(if they are problems at all, I don't know. All we can do is speculate, as there have been small problems every step of the way), if he has the time and focus on it full time. We have been in the put up or shut up phase for far too long because of expectations that were built. Hopefully, we can capitulate tomorrow, and put this downward pressure behind us with a bottom. It's going to be tricky with PIPE shares coming lose and the market blowing, but if the simple air permit can be obtained in the next few weeks, things should get turned around, and we can start to daydream again about the Matrix."
