Some interesting quotes in those threads. People selling if it drops to $8 to recover their losses, or commending people for having the patience to wait until $100 to sell to make serious profits.

The parallel with today is obvious. If you are in this for the long-term, then stop worrying about daily price fluctuations. Accept that the tech is revolutionary and not going away - buy, hold, stop checking the price daily, and have patience. Check back in a few years and see where we are. If the guy in those threads who planned to sell at $8 to recover his losses had more patience, he'd be a millionaire today.
