The practice of illegal shorting in all companies especially smaller capitalized companies is theft of assets of others. Support of this type of price manipulation must be stopped. I am so disgusted with the lack of enforcement of the brokerage houses and entities manipulating stocks that I now take delivery of every share I purchase. The banking industry is only the larger example. If you as a regulatory agency don't get your act together and move on procecution of naked shorts this whole system will go down. Move as fast as you can as there may be little time left.
