Not only are they short - other funds short are also paying them to publish misleading articles so they can cover at lower prices. Games will last only so long then fundamentals and quality of products will be validated. At these levels my friends at other funds are also paying attention as risk/reward is way in favor of the longs at these levels. Shorts have limited time to play their games that is why they pump out these articles and statements over and over again. If they really thought there was more downside they would actually not try and mislead people they would actually let valuation run so they can short more....We will see $20 this year again imho...=)
I don't post on SA anymore. I had posts that would be in limbo for two to three days and then be deleted for an invalid reason. I had posts that just disappeared. Then, like you, there are things they won't post if it challenges the authors intent or SA's. I'm done with SA.
