Facts are stubborn things, and in very short supply whenever the inmates are given day passes from their assylum to join us here.
* any options issue PRE-dates the arrival of Harold Hughes, and happened under Tate's watch in 2003 and earlier; HH was not even on the payroll until 2005 ... maybe now Tate will have to move on as Chairman of the BOD ... no huge loss there
* no re-stating of RMBS earnings from pre-2003 impacts current or FUTURE pps ... what will impact future pps is news related to court cases ... and Q2 earnings to be announced July 19th ... and guidance on Q3 earnings, also to be announced July 19th
The moronic bashers who come out to grace us here are a sub-species of scum found only at the bottom of sewage settling ponds.

I love how you try to slide that one under the radar Dave.
Yes Tate will have to "move on" ... probably to the Santa Clara County Jail. This (as my good friend Infringeon likes to remind me) is a "good thing" - as it means that Rambus has only been led from the very top by a criminal for the last 16 years.
Sorry, HH was on the board, and back taxes is the issue, and misrepresenting those taxes are a crime, if not penalized very severely--ie triple damages not unheard of on behalf of the govt plus defeat of all deductions should the IRS get bitchy--this is not small potatoes, and you need to go read something about penalties before you make like an expert.
You've missed the whole point of options post 2004, there is nothing to prevent the SEC from visiting those just because RMBS volunteered prior years.
Better check your facts Dave... Hughes was one the BOD, he was the one that should have been watching the hen house! I hope they have a buss big enough to carry all of these bastards to prison at one time! FU&K Them All!
