    • Tommy, You never give up. Do You? You have been obsessed with this stock for around 14 years now. It has had a very negative effect on your life. Maybe when the stock hits zero you will be able to go on with your life.
      If you have any money left, why don't you buy a few shares of PTN,then come over to our board and say some positive things. You can be the guy that copies all of the positive news items. You won't be sorry. PTN has the potential to move up at least 1000% over the next two to three years.
