Cramer: Over the LINE

If you are long-termer, I urge you to do some work. If the deal goes through, it is a huge win for Linn shareholders. If it doesn't, it will be because the bear raid worked and is legal and has the blessing of the authorities both at the SEC and Twitter.

This has been a horrendous experience for me. I have been attacked repeatedly on Twitter by people using multiple aliases. I have been besmirched and belittled as someone who has done no homework and doesn't know what he's talking about -- plus all the usual nonsense that's pulled out to make me look bad.

But, here's the thing long-time readers of me know. I am 100% motivated by these attacks. They energize me. I love the 40 against one deal. I love the multiple ripostes. I could do without the ad hominem nonsense, although I am certainly used to it. I have never shied away from these kinds of fights, and I guess that, yes, I have a particular set of skills that are a nightmare for the people who are coming after me. All they can say to me is "good luck." I have a tape-recorder-like mind about this stuff, though, and will get to the bottom of it.

I just wish the nice people at Linn weren't caught up in this fight, which has become me vs. some firm I have never heard of except for one guy who writes about restaurants.

Long after these guys are driven from the game, I will be writing here, just like I have for 31,000 columns before this. I urge those who doubt my resolve to ask anyone who has ever met me. Ever. Or go read Confessions of a Street Addict, which came out before many of these attackers were in middle school. I think they might find that I am, let's say, combative? Resolute? Implacable? A little bit of all of those. I wouldn't be that way, if it weren't a huge amount of fun for me to play D then go on the O and because I genuinely believe that I can help people -- not destroy stocks and people and firms -- but actually help people make some money in a good, honest and decent way.
