securedasses: Who the hell do you think you are? The owner of Yahoo? That was another diarhea of the mouth colon blow post of yours. You are pumping illegally like this is on par with a say Medtronics. Is shorting illegal in your book? Watch Spot short. Spot, shorts a stock. Oh, oh here comes securedasses.
Nothing wrong with an objective view as long as your don't frown when pie is on face.... I encourage productive couter post as long as it has nothing to do with future events not yet realized. (i.e. Possibilities of rejection or acceptance of canada)
now, back to your pov, i encourage you to short, as a matter of fact i dare you to short. i dare anyone in all my stock to short... It makes it more intersting to push the pot... Come 4 weeks, i will call, and perhaps i win..
now cheer your team, but don't low punch in the process....
I'll answer the question for you. NO, shorting is not illegal, but I personally feel that it is immoral.. Shorts benefit from other peoples misfortune. To me, shorts are no better than "looters" during a terrible disaster !!
Now, with that said.. eat sh*t and die.. you are on Ignore !!
