To whom it may concern:

I am an investor in the otcbb and pink sheets, I am asking you to consider SEC File No. 4-500. Request for rulemaking regarding member records of "short" position and reporting and public dissemination of aggregate positions by security. Please don't treat us as second class citizens.

Thank you
Steve Burgess
