Esco-Nasty takes it to an extreme. The reality is the information is accurate. It is public, but when discussing this stuff with a group, say at a get together or party, virtually no one, except some of the Docs in the house know about it or understand it. As to why someone would talk about it on a message board? Well, there can be several reasons. It could be a poster with a second identity who just needs to be a savior of the board, albeit temporarily. It could besomeone who enjoys the power of disseminationg knowledge. It could be a total hoaxer. Take it as you wish. But the info is accurate. The shortling info was to correct her prior remarks and even that was not accurate. Fact is, to cover would take about 3 hours, that's all. The published data on the short position as of today would shows # of days to cover as .3. Even if they are continuing to short it won't get up to much but can have a short term deleterious effect on the pps.
Megla, I agree with you. I was just saying that spilling insider info on a public board is like being associated with the mafia, and going around and telling everybody and their mother that you're associated with the mafia. Somebody is going to whack ya. In this case the SEC is going to rip up their ass.
