Please make changes to eliminate the fraudulent practice of naked shorting of securities and predating of options. Many startup companies have been destroyed by the perpetrators of these heinous crimes over many years. These criminal acts should be dealt with. We investors are looking to you, our leaders, to hold the guilty parties accountable. Thank you for all your previous actions to protect investors. Please follow through again for us? Thank you
