    Readers, notice how the operative paid by DuPont Management, an admitted "not-that-bright" representative of DuPont is demanding we disclose the names of individual men and women who have fled Shamours, and earlier DuPont. We will not violate their privacy, and subject ourselves to censure by Yahoo!

    These PR damage controllers will do anything to disguise the deterioration of Shamours and DuPont, including the pervasive demoralisation within.

    Much of the best talent has fled this crumbling company, into early retirement or working for more progressive outfits, including competitors of Shamours. The decided trajectory of Shamours is DOWN, Down, down, d o w n. ...funfun..

    Folks, look at this comical attempt at damage control! Every one of the 17 pages of the Citron Report has citations and references, backing up Citron's claims. The more the shills and supporters of Shamours Management try to cover up, the more you know this intractably weak company is doomed.

    It's remarkable that this not-so-bright poster is the most prominent face of DuPont on these financial internet sites.

    What DOW shareholders and Dow women and men see in this admitted representative and employee of DuPont is a resentfully ignorant and hostile cyber-bully attacking anyone who dares to question the quality and performance of DuPont Management. In a flash, they get a good idea of the tightly controlled, suffocating workplace environment of this sinking conglomerate in the dwarf state of Delaware!

    This merger is a looming train wreck for DOW shareholders and Dow people.

  • Erik Fried-Well Named New Syngenta CEO

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers, back to the past.

    Erik Fyrwald was the Group Vice President of DuPont AG & NUT, 2003 to 2008, commanding the ultimately failed development and commercialisation of DuPont Management's first major attempt to create a genetically modified seed trait to compete with superior managed Monsanto. The very costly result was DuPont OptimumGAP, which could not be planted in farmers' fields "without risk" (DuPont Management's own words). This embarrassing failure enhanced the substantial lead Monsanto had over the misfiring, lagging DuPont, an Optimum GAP for MON shareholders.

    In his defence, Mr. Frywald did struggle under the tumultuous regime of the bumbling DuPont über boss from the hills of Nashville, namely Chad OMG Holliday, Jr, a slick politician of limited education and even more limited business talent.

    Hopefully for SYT shareholders, Mr. Frywald has matured and will not infuse Syngenta with the damaging culture of the Management of the shriveled and dysfunctional DuPont Company.

    In the meantime, national security concerns from America have held up this Chinese acquisition. As an American, perhaps Frywald can help grease the skids for this Switzerland-based Syngenta.

    As a Syngenta shareholder, we wish him well…funfun.

    "It’s possible, too, that Chemours’s financial woes could derail the planned merger altogether, according to Donald Baker, an anti-trust attorney hired by Keep Your Promises DuPont. Since the merger has been envisioned as a coming together of equals, in which the shareholders of each company would take a 50 percent stake in the combined company, a financial failure at Chemours could alter that equation. “If Chemours went under, then some of the assignments to Chemours might be set aside as fraudulent for purposes of bank
    ruptcy law,” said Baker. If that happened, “the Dow shareholders might feel that giving DuPont 50 percent or close of the combined company wasn’t worth it because DuPont was responsible for this big turd.”

    No doubt about it, DOW shareholders are screwed in this clumsy combination with a distinctly inferior DuPont Company, half the size, half the strength of the degraded DuPont Company. Andrew Liveris with his pockets already jammed with a self-awarded $51 million going-away gift is working 24/7 to jam this unholy union with DuPont down the throats of the owners of Dow, DOW shareholders.

    Frantically Raising Cash by Shrinking and Sinking

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers, if anyone thinks Shamours is a sustainable going concern, stop and look at the continuing systematic liquidation going on. Shamours Management just announced their venerable sulphuric acid business is being dumped, sold to Veolia North America for $325 million. Sales revenue for Shamours will drop by circa $250 million per year, or 5% of total Shamours revenues.

    But almost comically, the sales proceeds, $325 million is only a drop in the bucket in the face of the towering debt of $4 billion on Shamours' bedraggled books. We won't even mention the massive burden, potentially $3 billion to $5 billion of the tsunami of Teflon Toxin tort lawsuits pending in federal court.

    Of course, the sneaky big bosses of DuPont hope to keep Shamours afloat for a little bit longer, so DuPont can skip town, and leave the entire bill for Teflon Toxins to Shamours, running off in marriage with strong Dow Chemical.

    Whom do the fakers in Fortress Wilmington think they are fooling?

    ag_amenn_mon,

    Given the tightly controlled hierarchy at DuPont and the management of news, you can't tell us that DuPont employees who openly disclose they are representatives of DuPont and speak continuously on critical DuPont issues and launch bitter campaigns to discredit DuPont competitors and independently-speaking investors and constantly repeat the Company's PR line nearly verbatim, do not have the implicit if not explicit approval and encouragement of DuPont Management up the line.

    From the brazen misconduct of the heckler in this forum, "notthatbright", an avowed DuPont employee who has apparently been assigned to cyber-stalk and monitor yours truly and who has initiated without exaggeration thousands of vile personal and defamatory attacks over the years at various internet boards, you can readily see what sort of unprofessional, unethical trash in the DuPont Management camp you're dealing with.

    What's next? Is DuPont going to sue 3M Corp for not fully informing DuPont about the hideous dangers of PFOA? A multi-$billion product liability lawsuit against the producer in the last century, 3M Corp?

  • A Dirty & Desperate Trick for PR Damage Control

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers and MMM & DOW Shareholders, no sleazy gambit is beyond the corrupt DuPont Company in the dwarf state of Delaware and its dishonest employees. In the past few days, admitted DuPont representatives, avowed DuPont employees paid by DuPont Management have taken to the internet to lay blame on 3M Corp for DuPont's waxing multi-$billion environmental and litigation mess over DuPont's extraordinarily toxic, cancer-causing Teflon chemical C8 or PFOA.

    Sleazy operatives are implying since 3M manufactured C8 and sold it to DuPont, 3M is responsible for DuPont's Teflon Toxin scandal over the globe. Never mind it was DuPont's ethically crippled executives and Managers who secretly dumped the deadly toxin into the waters and wells for decades around DuPont's sprawling Teflon factory in propinquity to Parkersburg, West VA. And never mind, 3M working with the U. S. EPA, stopped making C8 in 2000, 16 years ago, after warning DuPont's truculent bosses that PFOA posed critical dangers to human health.

    The continuing cover-up and evasion of DuPont Management is off the charts. Hopefully, the U. S. District Court of Southern Ohio and conscientious juries will reach the truth, sifting through some 3,500 Teflon Toxin tort lawsuits bought by the gravely ill victims of DuPont Management's serial flagrant misconduct. No amount of dirty PR damage control can camouflage what really went down.

    Like it or not DOW shareholders and Dow people will have to deal with this if this unholy marriage with the degraded DuPont is consummated.

    Wow, folks, what a lower class jerk, looking for a barroom fight.

    You know the type, resentfully uneducated, about to leave his shift, roar off in his 14-year old rusted Silverado to the nearest dive, guzzle a pitcher of the cheapest beer, and tries to pick a fight with the first guy he suspects can read and write.

    Gotta laugh at this serial heckler festering in his inferiority and ignorance.

    For the remarkably stupid occupants of the executive suites inside Fortress Wilmington in the insular dwarf state of Delaware, there is no such thing as the law of supply and demand and price elasticity for a common commodity! Shamours is a shameless SHAM, a grotesque creation of DuPont's devious and devilish Management. ...funfun..
