What happened here was an orchestrated Pump and Dump
I posted messages warning of this classic Pump and Dump when it started. An unimportant news article comes out and attracts attention from manipulators. They arrive at what had been a virtually dead message board and start acting like long time longs pretending to know each other like close friends and talking to each other about the stock going way up and all of it was obvious deception. Suckers move in and run the stock up at which time the Pumpers sell and make an exit.
