Red, Kiwi3 ... I agree with most of your analysis. The most recent PR is ambiguous and parts may be ridiculous unless there is some undisclosed information that is so far unavailable. We may be trying to reason an irrational press release.
I'm sure that I cannot be the only one that is now thinking that there may be an element of coercion involved here, especially since management is so unavailable. If so, what action is possible and when?
