How dare you guys try to make it even harder to short stocks! Shame on you for trying to make a one sided market. Don't you understand you are setting up a free pass for scammers without any checks and balances? If you want to do something as radical as STOPPING shorting you NEED to set up a way to borrow these stocks so the market is NOT one sided (MANIPULATED), capiche? If you have ANY doubts please see the history of the hengseng when they stopped shorting.
