1. Why not extend the ban on naked shorting from the present 19 to all stocks on a temporary basis and see what happens?
2. If that isn't possible how about including a few well-known targets in the ban, such as Overstock.com and Force Protection Inc. and see what happens?
3. If that is not possible why not open an investigation to see if there has been naked shorting in those two stocks, for how long, by whom, and how much damage, if any, it has caused?
