Chairman Schapiro:

We individual investors need your help to stop stock manipulations by reinstating the uptick rule. It doesn't need simply needs to be reinstated. The naked short sellers are without a doubt a major contributor to the manipulation of stocks and that hurts us. Please bring back accountablility and control.

Thanks for your consideration.
