It appears that you did not receive the answer that you were hoping for. This is an insult to all of us who unanimously decided on reinstating the original uptick rule. This second comment session is making things extremely clear to us that we have absolutely no say in the rule changes the SEC is proposing to the public. so stop wasting everybody's time and money with these bogus public comment proposals and just announce how you plan to control the flow of the markets. AND GET IT DONE ALREADY.

The day the SEC is abolished is the only way investor confidence will be restored.
