"Right, because the problem is the share price itself which can't be fixed by the manipulation of the price via r/s."
but the share price was brought down by shorts - they are in total control right now. Changing management would not change that. Shorts are playing a dangerous game if an agreement with large company or VC steps in to take stake in company - which is a distinct possibility.
yes, management is suspect - mostly stupid and didn't adjust to change to tightening economy. Management are share holders also and they screwed themselves - timing could not have been worse.
