I don't want anybody to short my shares of stock ever.
Not ever.

How can I prevent my shares from being lent out to someone that will immediatly sell them?

There needs to be an interum return of the uptick rule while dicsussions continue.

There also needs to be a rule that allows investors to prevent their shares from being lent to others.
