It's quite funny when I read back over your history of posts and see how bullish you were about this stock before the collapsed buy-out (which looking back at where the nat gas futures were heading, even as long ago as last Jan/Feb, surely suggested to some people that the offer price was too high). I guess you really got burned when the deal didn't pan out (sorry about that - diversification is the key to investment success, don't put all your eggs in one basket). I hope all the money you are using to short this company (which from your posts would seem to be your strategy) is money that you can afford to loose and you also have other investments. Good luck with gambling to get your money back. I hope you don't loose your shirt.
