Re: Any chance Patrick will start posting here?

eLake,

Thanks. One of the most fustrating things about this has been the way that the bad boys' compliant journalists continually try to spin this as something I am doing because of OSTK. In fact, as I have emphasized from the beginning, this is an issue for America. Our economy is riding down the street with the handbrake pulled so long as this goes on. Every entrepreneur in America understands this situation. Dr. Shapiro says that thousands of companies have been destroyed and maybe a trillion dollars stolen out of the system. I have met others from within game who say that these estimates are low. I feel like I am watching old ladies getting mugged while the cops drive by with a chuckle. So I got up in the grill of the bad guys.

As a way of covering-up these bigger issues, the stable of compliant journalists have done everything they could to spin this as, "Just another CEO who is mad about his stock price," One of the amazing things that will come out of this, I think, is the participation of these elements of the business press in the cover-up. They have really gone out on a limb and are in danger of destroying their franchises, I feel, when the truth comes out.

Anyway, it is nice to hear that shareholders of some other companies know the score and see why I am doing what I am doing.

Regards,

Patrick
