I enjoy being a perpetual student, and working with good people. I'll probably be here until I go non compos mentis. I'll lose my marbles, then they have a right to get rid of me.

I have no problem with taking a negative view on a company, but as it's gotten easier (through the Internet and TV) and more economical (through options markets) to conduct bear raids, there's a much greater risk that short sellers can manipulate the markets and try to bring companies down.
