I am very very confidant that the accusation that STP was banned by the SEC is a false one. I think anyone would be careful alleging that kind of thing. Im thinking he was referring to Caserta.
Michael, I think your accusation of STP being morally corrupt is a iy over the top. By who's standards? by what benchmark? Morally corrupt is "Not caring between what is good and what is bad and only focusing on one's own means to an end". Have we all done things, accepted information under dubious circumstances to bolster our situation? In fact I'd say a fair amount of investing is morally corrupt. I believe STP whole heartedly believed his thesis, that he had no intention to defraud . Unfortuantely many years ago, STP hadrun ins with several posters. They became enemies and all felt the desire to defend their points to the bloody end. Grudges, become resentments. Some people are so close minded and angry and unhappy that even a modest infraction must be punished. I feel soory for them, what a terrible way to live.
But I don't put STP in that category. His hostintake shots at Ken, Treeg SHU and adamant belief in IOC made him the poster boy for attacks. Serious personal attacks and threats that made him alter his life...simply because he had a trong belief. You are ill informed about the vilification and threats. Far far worse than your sinapore sling episode.
So if you think your lawyer detractor buddy and cronies are wearing white hats,,,you haven't a clue, as you haven't had a clue regarding the IOC monetization. Japanese? Korean? That never had a chance...ask duma,,,email him...I have/
