I am disgusted by how you regulate the markets. I understand how it is imperative not to cause chaos by forcing every person to cover shorted shares at the same time however, the amount of time you known about this problem and have done nothing about it is just plain outrageous.

Special interest groups i.e. Market makers, and hedge funds still are in cohorts to undermine the markets and suck the livelihood out of our economy. It shouldnt have taken this long to know what was going on and finally now being able to do something about.

Remember in this world you cannot get something for nothing, so selling shares without delivering them is stealing. Hopefully the Sec will finally do something about it before we have a new law in the United States, martial law

The time is now.
