Iron management in chronic kidney disease: conclusions from a “Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes” (KDIGO) Controversies Conference
I scanned this article and to be honest, it was written for the likes of Zing, i.e., much of it over my head. ROCKWELL was one of the companies that “supported” the conference. One would think said financial “support” would buy at a minimum a paragraph or two about our “game changer.” Yet somehow we didn’t rate a mention, not even a whiff of Triferric was to be found. We need much better PR.
Types, I too find it difficult to believe people actually get paid to do bashing so I did a little Internet searching and found the following definitions:
"Paid Basher: An individual, acting on the behalf of someone else, who attempts to devalue a stock by spreading false or exaggerated claims against a public company..." My thoughts now...they conclude this is done so their "employer" can buy more stock on a cheaper basis so really, paid bashers are working for longs. Ironic, huh? By longs, I mean someone who believes in the company. They don't address short sellers at all.
Then we have the "altruistic basher' who is "An individual that has a true concern for the welfare of others and attempts to keep an unknowledgeable investor away from a security by posting negative information that sheds light on the scam or pump."
Next, the "Frolic Basher" who is an individual that has a negative sentiment for a security and posts on a message board to play with the longs and the scammers for pure entertainment purposes only.
Then, we have the "Defrauded Basher" who is an individual who realized "their" stock was a fraud, and partly feels the need to vent, and in addition, wants to warn others not to make the same mistake."
Lastly, the "Dualistic Basher" who is "an individual which was long in a security but then decides to sell the stock. At this point the individual will switch his or her sentiment on a message board in an attempt to devalue the same stock with the intentions of buying back at a lower price." My words again...this is a long of sorts.
The quotes are found on line and are not my words. What I couldn't find is how much a paid basher can expect to earn.
The DaVita post was simply FYI for those who might find it interesting. I assume the six thumbs down are from posters who approve of fraud...you know, the deliberate deception to secure unlawful gain. Do you really believe deceit should be a standard business practice?
