Dear Sir:

I am a long term investor in a very good company. I am very frustrated with the increased short selling that is going on just to make a quick profit.

I want to encourage the you to do all in your power to close the loophoes in the new ruling which allows the short seller to avoid closing out their positions under certain conditions.

Please look out for us long term investors. Thank you.
