    If I told Everybody I Spoken with Gurnee for 30 Minutes

    I'm sick about the assertion that anybody making a less than favorable comment is trying to buy back the stock cheaper. That's why I haven't been on this board for more than a month.

    I remember many guys like bab10m said I simply tried to buy XIN more cheaply when I publicly said I sold XIN at $2.95 during the earning release day. Look, XIN is still 15 cents below the price I sold it. If bulls just wish to squeeze bears away from this board in order to feel more confident, they are pathetic.

    • bab10m, you are using exact the same "without substance" argument to argue against yourself. May I ask you what you use to support your assertion that "Sounds to me like you want to buy back the shares you sold and want to scare a few people away so you can buy a few cents cheaper." May I say your point is without substance?

    • It's not that "less favorable" that matters, it's that less favorable "without substance" matters. Personally, to me, as long as Tom Gurnee remains the CFO, I'll have my doubts on this company even though I hold some positions. I never felt that a Chinese company should hire an English-speaking only guy as its CFO, let alone this guy has no good track record to show for it. I hope the company realizes that and replace Gurnee soon.

    • I'll stand with you, Stan. There's definitely a segment of folks here opposed to a diversity of opinions. But that's not everybody.

      There's a small but growing segment of us who believe in Voltaire's edict "Though I disagree with you say, I will defend to the death your right to say it."

      I've never understood why people who only want to hear their own views parroted back to them come to a bulletin board in the first place. Wouldn't it be a safer option to just make a recording of themselves telling them how great and smart and correct they are and then playing it back on an infinite loop?
