Exactly! I've long abandoned trying to explain this to people after all it's not in my interest to have a market full of intelligent investors. So to those who think bonus creates wealth for them I'd say "if it ain't broke don't fix it" but if you see bonus issues for what they truly are, then kudos to you.
