The shorts who shorted from 244 might or might not be jerks.
New shorts who come on to the board below 10 and start jiving on about the 'smelly' stock are jerks.
It's the asinine attitude that makes a jerk a jerk. But perhaps you don't understand that.
What puzzles me is their failure to take pride in their 'jerkhood.' It's is clear that it is their intention to be jerky, so why isn't the recognition of their success in portraying themselves in the manner intended a cause for pride?
