My reply (if it gets to a human)
............The guy is rehashing the same information which previously had been shot down by another contributor. There was nothing wrong in my post.. The writers motivation was clearly to data mine and cherry pick information and post it not for the first time, but the second time on your site. Just because an individual has the letters "phd" behind his name does not give him or her total expertise in all fields. The writer has a clearly stated short agenda which was disclosed so of course it is within reason that he would receive a critical response back to his own data mining..... I feel that posting what he gets paid by SA as well as his short position on a stock (he is allowed to make material misrepresentations of the data provided by GALE) is a valid reason to allow us to voice our opinion on the forum without the threat of censorship because you the moderator do not like the content, especially since it exposes him in multiple ways as a fraud.
The apparent bias of your site is now beginning to attract alot fo attention from both sides of the fence (both long and short) and the viability of your articles being published has now almost become a laughing stock due to your protection of contributors while quashing the opinions of the readers to question the motivation behind such articles
If you do not agree with their contributor...........

GALE vs INSY
Look folks, INSY is sitting at over a billion market cap, with what many believe to be an inferior pain drug as its only driver...not only that INSY conducted alleged illegal marketing to even attain its current market penetration with its drug...
'The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business and operations. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements concerning, and/or failed to disclose, among other things that: (i) the Company engaged in illegal and/or unethical marketing of Subsys; (ii) the Company was exposed to potential fines and other disciplinary actions as a result of its Subsys marketing practices; and, (iii) as a result, the Company's financial statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.'
The aforementioned class action law suit going on now against INSY, this seriously opens the door for GALE to ramp up its marketing a grab a larger share of the market, in an ethical manner, with a more effective drug, that is easier to dose and easier for the consumer to consume
Look at the info I have found on this guy............. He reminds me of Billy Carter who thought just because he drank beer knew all about beer making.
A NEWBIE he even states.........
This is from "Stocktwits" site......

Apparently the first username was not good enough so he had to "rejoin" under a different user id.......

.........Now he has gone from a "newbie" to a healthcare researcher......BWAHHAHAHAHA.....
Hey not only will this guy tell you about all the drugs in the world, but he also writes about food and sandiwches in New Orleans so I guess he is a food expert also (in his head)...... The more you search around for this guy you can see is he a master in his own mind of many things, but in reality he is just another labrat who earned a "doctorate" so he thinks he knows more than everyone else aka "egomaniac".
and as expected...........bust the SA contributor, get your post deleted and the threatening SA email sent to you about "TOS"............ How about instead a "TOT" meaning "terms of truth" rule being enforced with your contributors and also preventing them from rearaging the same story over and over again in an attempt to drive share price dow to help their short position?
Have at least one iota of integrity please SA.
Apparently his fund must have been a failure.........." After a successful five year stint as CEO and Director of Enhydris Private Equity, we have decided to dissolve the fund in order to focus on new projects. Starting next January, I will officially be a freelance analyst and writer. "
Also the name of his equity firm is a snakes name he took....
.............When you read about him on linkedin, you quickly can summarise he spent his time in labs like I did (my degree is in physiology with specific work in herpetology working with Dr. Gordon Burkhardt who has had National Geographic documentaries made of him in South America), but I do not see anything stating he has any background at all in finance and business. Apparently all you have to do is present yourself as an expert in a field, throw some money to set up an investment company named after a type of snake (snake oil salesman) throw some money at the sate of Nevada ( you know the one where all vices are legal and crime runs rampant) and voila you have a company you can say is a multinational company even though it just registered as a "business" 08-3-2013.
............. The guy is young and studied bugs and snakes.......... The guy has ZERO noted work or studies in oncology or anything outside of herpetology and entomology..
Think about it.
Well since SA is very good at removing posts that question their "contributors" I just wanted to post it here as well...... I am curious if most people know how SA works and if they know their contributors are paid minimum amounts per article also. This fool who was just released today has already been paid once for his article and is getting paid today in his short position.............
I would expect alot more new info than the continual rehashing beat of the same drum you beat before. The company does not owe you a response based upon your perceived interpretation of the numbers.
Two points in hand I think readers should know..
1: "Author payment: $0.01 per page view. Authors of PRO articles on small and mid-cap stocks receive a minimum guaranteed payment of $150-500."
and the BIGGIE......
2: "Disclosure: I am short GALE. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from Seeking Alpha). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article. "
....... There are two sides to every coin and unfortunatly for many individuals, they only read the side that makes the most noise. And your side is very noisy, but offers nothing except noise. How high was the price when you instigated your short position?
I also think that SA needs to vett its contributors more and prevent individuals with definitive positions in companies from writing about said company one way or the other.
Why woudl anyone listent to soemone who uses the term "baggies' when it comes to investors? Do you think that shows one iota of credibility?
I have held THLD and GALE since 2012 and have mede more with GALE recently than THLD. I don't understand why you are posting about GALE over here on the THLD board anyway? That is like going to a Mercedes dealership and crowing about how much better an F150 is than a C250 for hauling logs.
jabber$UCKACOCKY75............... #$%$ you stupid moron
I have a good friend in Knoxville who is a patent law specialist (and he also was NASD licensed before) and he thinks this is all just a bunch of BS.......... These are the type of firms that advertise on "Jerry Springer" when you need a lawyer call us.............. No sleep lost here.
