1. I don't think it has been so much quiet as remarkably civil.  It certainly is true that the euphoria has subsided as the share price has sunk at a time when some had predicted a soaring of the price.  It would be very nice to see that earth shattering news by Christmas that some have predicted.  I think that some level of skepticism is only natural for stockholders that have lost quite a bit of their money in this stock.  I am probably in for the long haul.  The company stock will either soar or go to nearly nothing.
