Dear Sirs
When a person sells something that they do not own, that is the very definition of fraud. Do you not understand that? Short selling most definately creates a supply of shares that could not otherwise exist, hense dilution. Honest markets demand a stop to this outrageous practice.
Sincerely Michael Mazurek
