I support limiting short selling. The practice of selling what one does not own must be controlled otherwise manipulation is a potential result. I cannot sell my neighbors company of which I do not own any share however selling short stocks allows this very practice. I suggest a delay and open annoucnement similar to large share holders and company executives. Another limitation would be to allow short selling based on company permission. One could also limit short selling to less than 0.1% of outstanding shares, per day.
