Reinstate the up-tick rule!!!!!!

Reinstate the up-tick rule!!!!!! How many times do we the public have to ask you to do your job? Joe Kennedy knew how to stop the short sellers from destroying the market. Take a page from his book. Even in a boxing match, after you have put the other guy on the mat you can't hit him again until he gets up. This market can not get up becaue the shorts keep hitting when you're down. There is no way to correct this until you reinstate the up-tick rule. Please, before it's too late, fix this situation.
