And again I disagree about him being boring. He is trying to joke often and he is trying to "kill" with his honest comments. And it's mostly successful. For me boring analysts are the ones who are too serious etc. Thorin is not serious. He is baiting, joking, talking bullshit, analyzing, discussing and making fangays mad. Do you really think it's boring?
I would say that he is one of the most interesting persons from all these analysis desks. If you count only English-speaking ones.
