No you are not the only!  This is only done by the CEO/ board of directors for an outrageous,( and I still don't know how as it is neither illegal, but most assuredly immoral) money grab!!  I have to deal with some shady characters in my life now, and I sure don't need it in my investing as well.  Yes, this does bring management's character into the very bright light.  I wonder if they had aspirations for goldman sucks and jpmoron.  Their actions sure enough denote this.  Have lost total faith in management.  Time for an exit plan.
