  • InterOil Resists an Orchestrated PR Attack [View article]
    You wrote, "The story raises serious questions about the usefulness of message boards (to put it mildly) and how safe are public companies against organized attacks even in a time when naked shorting has become more difficult."

    Question:

    How safe are investors with anonymous stock pumper bloggers like you?

    At last count you made 3,237 anonymous posts on Yahoo, pumping stocks:

    "He even tries to make our website suspect because we don't live in the US (something we've never hidden), that paragon of financial rectitude."

    An anonymous blogger who also posts anonymously on message boards, pumping IOC day and night, is making allegations about a blogger who uses his real name in his blog and posts on message boards using his real name, too.

    This convicted felon is more transparent than the writer of this smear piece.

  • Overstock.com's Q1 Financial Performance Aided by GAAP Violations [View article]
    "I suggest the writer articulate his concern to the SEC Enf. Div on the on-line tip line with support for why you think the accounting is incorrect."

    I send my blog posts and other information to the Securities and Exchange Commission and Joseph J. Tabacco Jr (Overstock.com Audit Committee member).

    The ball is in their court.

    Regards,

  • Dear Mr. President-Elect: Advice on Combating White-Collar Crime from a Convicted Felon [View article]
    Correction:

    "Oh I get it, we need a crook to catch crooks! In other words, your past felony level (which you seem proud of as if it were a merit badge) scumbag disregard for law and the rest of societal values make you UNIQUELY qualified for a high paying consultancy position in gov't right?"

    I don't charge the government for my consulting work. As to your other points, there is a saying "it takes one to know one."

    As a general comment to all your feedback, white collar crime will always be around since every person lives with sin and temptation. White collar crime is either more noticed or less noticed but is always there. Most white collar crimes are flushed out as the economy weakens, since it is harder to sustain such crimes. I thank you all for your comments.

  • Patrick Byrne’s Hype versus Overstock.com’s Financial Performance [View article]
    Berstock:

    I have some questions for you to test your financial acumen:

    When a company earns more than analyst’s expectations I understand that it is considered a positive surprise.

    Questions:

    When a company loses more than analyst’s expectations, is it a positive surprise, too?

    When a company loses less than analyst’s expectations, is it a negative surprise?

    Kindest regards,
