I cannot believe you are asking for more comments on the uptick rule. The public overwhelmingly told you that it wanted a rigorous uptick rule reinstated. They don't want a watered down, worthless version of it. They want you to protect their investment/retirement accounts from illegal manipulation. All of these delays give the SEC the appearance of impropriety.
