I both buy long and short stocks, depending upon the opportunity present. Nothing wrong with either - thats pool we have to swim in.
I hate bashers and BS artists as much as the next guy, but anyone who uses the term "shorties" immediately identifies themselves as either a rank amateur or an immature ass who deserves to be ridiculed and/or ignored.
One further note: true short squeezes are very rare, so don't bank it to save save your position.
It's happened in this company, not long time ago...look in the chart before you write... and also i make a lot of money in short as a day trader' not with long naked...and also in the bull market i make money on short squeeze all the time , and almost every day...
