    Again, for those of you that think this is going to turn around, I ask the same question that I asked 3 years ago:

    If they don't have any faith that it will turn around, why should anybody else.

    • It is unbelieveable that despite staggering losses, increasing each of the last 3 years, that Steve, Bob and the gang are rewarded not just with huge salary increases but also big bonuses.

It is a huge warning sign to me that not a penny of these "undeserved" bonuses were reinvested back into stock at the current low prices.
