I recall "You suck!" being used on the PCGS forum many years ago when someone posted an incredible find that they had cherrypicked.  I don't know if this tradition originated over there or not, but it caught on.  After a while, "You suck!" became an award of sorts, a coin complement of the highest order, to be used sparingly on only the best of the best finds.

Aw and I thought I was good for finding a 1795 flowing hair half dollar in VF-35 :(

Thanks for the information.  It's interesting to learn the origin of expressions such as these.  I hope I'll be able to find something else that's equally rare.

This would have been the perfect thing to say when a co-worker scored a 2 on the par 5 first hole in the first week of our golf league.  And I hope I'll remember it if someone tells me that he bought shares of the Amazon initial public offering in 1997 ($1.50 per share, adjusting for splits), which closed at $1,339 today.
