I know certain clearing firms have opted out of the SIAC EBS system, and now use
exclusively the NASDR's EBS system.  How will the NASDR's web-based EBS system 
alter the scope and goals of Proposed Rule 17a-25?

Dear Sir or Madam-
     
I would like to add my comments to what I have been told are hundreds of 
similar responses against "selective disclosure."  I feel that for companies 
to disclose information to a small and select group of analysts prior to full 
disclosure is essentially insider trading and profoundly unethical.  I 
strongly support a regulation to ban selective disclosure and would support a 
regulation that requires companies to disclose all information fully both to 
"insider analysts" and to the public at large at the same time with equal 
access for all.  Please end "selective disclosure."
     
Sincerely,
Mark Deramo

Proposed Rule: Selective Disclosure and Insider Trading
     
Ladies and Gentlemen: 
     
We are in favor of extending the proposed Regulation FD to rating firms.  It is 
not clear to us that rating firms need inside information in order to assign 
timely, accurate ratings.  Furthermore the possession of inside information 
creates the risk of potential abuses, regardless of firm policy.  
     
The U.S. capital markets have benefited greatly from full disclosure and fair 
play; the adoption of Regulation FD is a logical next step.
     
     
Very truly yours,
     
     
Sean J. Egan

To whom it may concern. My name is Carl Kabel, I do not think there 
should a watered down version, or any loopholes on companies disclosing 
sensitive market data to a select few, it's been going on too long. I 
thank anybody who does it should go to jail, and loose everything just 
like a person who gets caught with drugs, and everything is taken from 
them. If the firms want to cut off the flow of information for fear of 
being sued so be it. Louis Thompson, chief executive officer of the 
National Investor Relations Institute ,and the rest that are against it, 
shows you just how rampant this disclosure is. This so called 
inadvertent disclosure should not be protected from liability.
                                      Thank you
                                                Carl Kabel

Please count one more vote favoring the proposal to STOP 
selective disclosure prior to making the same information 
available to individual shareholders.
Thanks,
