No , actually I was just making light of the whole fiasco.
        The entire situation reminds me of a term coined by the author M.Scott
Peck, that is one of "Instutionalized Evil".
        IMHO, the entire business should be scrutinized by the criminal
investigation arms of the FBI, and IRS.
        From what I've garnered from the information so far, this conspiracy of
greed, has badly affected the lives of thousands of investors and
employees, and had severely impacted the confidence of the American
investment community...anon
        There is always a thin line between prudent business activity and
criminal action, and in this case, I'm certain the latter, is the cause
of the collapse.
        I believe the IRS, has the power to freeze all assets in an ongoing
criminal investigation.They could start with the
management's gravy payouts.
        BTW...knowingly selling worthless stock is no no too.
