    Shorts

    Some of you are vastly over estimating the role of any shorts in this stock. Also the notion that anyone with anything
    negative to say is short, is silly. It's highly likely a large portion of the current position is related to the parties involved
    with past private placements. This is a common practice reducing risk to a large holder of stock, especially when the placement
    stock is aquired at a market discount. If this stock were to attract the "pro" shorts, the size would be more like 20% to 40% of
    the float. They wouldn't monkey around with dirt here, you'd see it in Barron's or the like. It is NOT possible to detect short
    selling by looking at time & sales on the tape.

    • We can see the shorting via java charts. They are indicated by "dntk" and "uptk" signals. The detailed legend states and I quote "UPC 71 short sale indicator for security"

      We are watching.

      • I don't know anything about the java charts. I suspect you are seeing an "s" next to certain trades. These are probably just
        sales or traders billing out stock. OTC guys that accually handle each trade can't identify short sales (unless it's their own
        order) so I don't know how you would be able to. Ask Joe,since you believe everything he tells you. (kidding) Ask whoever takes
        your stock trades. I'm surprised you had no comment about my concerns regarding the financial abuses committed by the
        officers.(msg 119)
