    You realize "Eddie" is gone, right? And I don't think he'll be buying any shares at this point.

    Boolean? Enough! I defended you yesterday. I further made your point. We all get it now. Management doesn't read the board, and if they did, they wouldn't care what you were saying. Your point is clear to all of us. If management truly believed in itself, or the future of the company, they'd be buying shares. They're not buying, so that tells us all we need to know!

    Frank? Frank hasn't been with the company for years. That kind of #$%$ is part of what makes you look so bad. So find a new rant and move on from this one. Sleep easy knowing you educated the unknowledgeable shareholder regarding insider buying.

    Insider buying UP - BUT NOT WITH CPI

    All due respect to mountainr23, and as crazy as Boolean is sometimes, he happens to be right on the money here! Your 21% insider ownership number is quite deceiving. It includes a 10+% institutional holder who is considered an insider simply because of the size of the holding. They are NOT insiders at all. The real "insider" number (board and management) is probably under 10%.

    To Boolean's point, over the last year we have seen two directors sell (Bazaar and McSweeney), and the former CEO apparently liquidate his holdings, and he doesn't show up anymore. Add to that the fact that the CFO owns approximately 13,000 shares, and the CEO only 7,000 shares, and you begin to see his message. What Boolean is looking for is a show of confidence from management that THEY believe in the future of the company that THEY are running. Mr. Fred had almost 200,000 shares that he owned, and while it is true that many of those shares were obtained through options, the taxes he had to pay, and continue to hold the shares meant he was pretty well invested in the company's future. And I think that's all Boolean is trying to bring to light, though he has a very strange way of doing it.

    Ask yourself, as an individual shareholder, not an institution, should you own more shares of a company than its CEO and CFO combined? I agree with Boolean here (and I very seldom do), management should be showing us their confidence by putting their money where their mouths are. And I don't mean buying 1,000 shares each. They should step up to the plate and buy 10,000 shares each. Yes, put $100,000 in play so we know you actually believe your own propaganda. The chairman is loaded, so why doesn't he personally buy a few hundred thousand dollars worth and prove his confidence too?

    I'm sorry, but if they can't do that, then Boolean is 100% right, and none of us should be trusting them. Without skin in the game, it's easy to say things are looking great!

    NO INSIDER BUYING YET

    Boolean, I know you're not a dummy, but sometimes you just don't think. While I can almost guarantee you that insiders WON'T buy because it's never been their style, you looking for them to have bought already is not well thought out. Almost every company in America has an insider trading policy that doesn't allow an insider to buy or sell either immediately proceeding earnings, or immediately after. They have to allow the market to react to whatever news they put out and then "cool down" from it.

    So there would not have been any insider buying yet, in my opinion. But, to give you your due, this management team will likely NOT buy any when they are permitted to, as they refuse to put their own skin into the game. And in regard to this fact, you are 100% on the money!
