please be advised to the fact that i support the short sale prevention act that is trying to be put in affect to disclose short sales in their entirety and i also believe the sec should make all those involved be accountable for their actions just as if they acted in contrary to the other rules of the sec which licenses them. in short transparency is need for otc stocks as well as pink sheet stocks ,this is how the sec can protect us form fraud!

thank you
