Forbes contributor Igor Greenwald castigates Bill Ackman for shorting Herbalife (HLF -1.4%), accusing him (and David Einhorn) of possible "Look at Me!" self-promotion to "induce a desired result simply by attaching their name to it." Greenwald wants Ackman to "explain how a 'pyramid scheme' lasts 32 years without an army of disabused and dispossessed latecomers ... clamoring for refunds," not to mention HLF's stellar financial performance. (Ackman is giving his reasoning now at the Ira Sohn conference in NYC.)
