If Austin isn't short OCZ, he's working for the shorts. IMO
Look at his SA articles since he began, 75% of them are OCZ trash articles going back over a year. You tell me why one individual is so interested in trashing one company if he has no financial interest in doing so. Come on, he's not spending that much time trashing OCZ because he's a good samaritan.
Yes its all true.. its an evil plot by the new world order.
I'll tell you exactly why I write.
1. Its fun
2. Its entertaining
3. It helps people avoid getting conned by the company and the pumpers here
4. It annoying the pumpers which is pretty fun.
5. Its fun to watch the pumpers squirm.
6. Far as pay on an SA article you can make varying amounts from 20 if an article flops to a couple hundred if its a smashing success. Site average now is 60-70. Ask yourself is that worth your time (its not worth mine but reason 1 - 5 are). If it is worth your time then write up a well researched and referenced counter argument and get it published!
I would challenge ANY of you to write up something that explains how OCZ can get out of this hole, fight the burn rate, SEC investigation, lawsuits, decaying market share, lack of NAND mfg, etc etc.. get on it!
I really would not call it bashing.. lets call it reporting. OCZ gives the info (conference calls, SEC docs) and i just put the puzzle pieces together. If only OCZ could put out some good news for once. Maybe ditch that consumer and power supply division, lay the people off to cut costs.
