You stated "the fact that a few of you sought fit to come by now, when activity on this board has been nonexistent likely indicates a bottom." Interesting, that's the exact same thing bullish posters said on the Radioshack board when the price fell from $22 to $18 then again when it fell to $16. They ignored the warnings as just stock bashing.
Well, to sum it up, I believe American Eagle, Gap, and Abercrombie and Fitch will continue to eat market share from Aeropostale, and you think this is a nice support-level to buy an undervalued stock for an outsized gain. Like you said, that's what makes a market.
Anyway, all the best to you in your future trading and/or investing. (tips hat)
