I agree whole heartedly maple. The exchanges do NOTHING to protect American investors from the loathful behavior of foreign investors who hide behind the veiled secrecy of anonymous accounts, identified by nothing more than a number as they naked short and use STAIRSTEP SHARESWAPPING HFT ALGORITHMS to pillage our markets. They only goal these sheisters have is to manipulate small investors into capitulation, and then bring the stock RIGHT BACK UP to where it all began - once they have wrung enough blood from the innocents. Shame on the SEC for not doing a better job to protect the true investors by outlawing shorting period. It does NOTHING beneficial in the long run as has been proven over multiple occaccsions including the Crashes of 29, 87 and 2008.
As far as Yahoo is concerned, It should be expected that people can say anything that falls within the realm of their opinion, but they should not be allowed to tell outright lies. I join you in condemning these #$%$. I am sending a POX upon the houses of villains like Mstevens (and her 100 other ID's) whose sole purpose on these boards is to inflict harm upon good companies through slander and good people by her actions.
