Dear Sir/Madam,

As a purchaser of stock in more than one OTCBB traded company I would like to ask you to help stop the dubious short selling practices that are currently allowed on the OTCBB. I am referring to SEC file No. 4-500 Request for Rulemaking Regarding Member Records of "Short" Positions and Reporting and Public Dissemination of Aggregate Positions by Security.

Please protect us from modern day stock pirates,

Thank you for considering my request.


Greg Newman, Texas
