    The Reason Some Shorts are Slimy

    Some European countries prohibit short positions on stocks. I wish the USA would do this.

    I posted this same title on this board a while back. I was told by a responder that there really is nothing wrong with taking a position that a company might "go under" and betting that a company's demise might happen. Okay, fair enough. It's not something I would do because it seems negative, but to "each his own." But some shorts can't stop there. Many seem to go out of there way to spread innuendo and misinformation. Not waiting -- in a passive way -- for a company to fall, but actively becoming part of the process. Sorry, but that's just slimy to me.

    To be part of a tearing down process - to run counter to efforts to build up and make progress, is not what I want to be involved in. Seems slimy to me. Wait passively and if a company falls, then it falls. But cheerleading a fall, trying to spread confusion and twisting facts to "help" the demise.....slimy.

    Sentiment: Buy
