However the ultra-bashing gets to me...point to be noted here once and for all - in a CTO situation, say hypothetically if the CTO lasts for a mth, the long are still better off than the shorts - why??? Shorts are based on margin...and those institutional "dogs" who shorted in the 70-90cts range will start to hurt big time - any IF. a buyout dowa happen, they will surely be in the deep!!...lets hope the PMs ( who hire the bashers)get fired for taking on "careless" risks !!! That would be solid karma...

cheers,
