Please forgive my sarcasm, inetprophet, but I think you're nuts.
Why in the world would Taglich and his buddies want to destroy a tiny upper-Midwest contract manufacturer, even if they could somehow do it by the sort of machinations you suggest? Taglich no longer has a financial interest in the stock. His friends are surely not short the stock.
You might have very limited horizons and lots of time to spend on the kind of stuff you write about--and some reason to enjoy doing so. I doubt that they do.
