    What are DCA accounts?

    I've used Computershare for many years and always like and recommend them.

    I don't know Mark. I haven't either heard anything regarding that or looked into it.

    If the state does decide to prosecute them, it will be publicized.

    I have just seen this article:

    http://yhoo.it/1x1CpTm

    If L.L. has failed government testing then they should face the necessary punitive action. I have been saying this all along. I have also been saying that the short sellers who brought this to light should be applauded if they (the tests showing that L.L.'s products did not meet code) are true. This now seems to be the case. Let's see how this unfolds.

    Very good Post silverline17. Repped.

    As I said, if the government tests these products and the results are not supportive of the independent testing that the team of short sellers had done and had 60 minutes act upon, then both the short sellers and 60 minutes should be punished.

    I guess me using the word punished upsets some people. Well, pain is a difficult word to deal with also, but pain is a term that is often used in relation to stock prices and investor's feelings when the issues they are holding lose value.

    So, the S.E.C should investigate stock price manipulation that has been caused in this case, and those who endured the pain of losing money should be compensated.

    Well, it looks like the government is not going to lay out the major expense of testing. They haven't even ordered these products removed. That should tell you right there that these products are legal.

    I could go on and on but at this point I won't.

    Great Post silverline17! I agree with the points you have made and could not have said it better myself!

    So many instances here show this. Here's one.

    Why hasn't the government forced L.L. to take these products off their shelves before this recent outcry? Even after this recent outcry? The products are still on sale.

    I asked you to stop and now you want to insult me? Shows just where you are coming from. If you keep this up I'm going to report your posts and we'll let SA Editors decide what to do. How is that?

    You don't have to know where I'm coming from. You are changing my words by cutting and pasting half a sentence. I said this:

    "In the event that the... short sellers whom have basically caused this situation to unfold the way it has so far are not 100% right about their accusations, the lawsuits that will ensue will cause the same damage upon them as they have attempted to inflict both upon this company and shareholders of their equity, by the manipulation they have engineered."

    So you left the "In the event that the" out.

    I said I don't have to discuss this any further. You feel that you must, and you have continued by changing my meaning and arguing against this changed meaning. This is where you are coming from for whatever reason. I'm done arguing this point with you. Have a nice day.

    I'm not sure who you are referring to here. If it is in regards to what I said, you have to read it again.

    In lieu of you doing so I will again state the fact you are evidently twisting:

    If a government test is done and it shows that the independent testing that was done yielded incorrect results, my opinion is that the short sellers who instigated the testing and brought the story to 60 minutes should face punishment for slander and stock manipulation.

    Conversely, it logically follows that if government testing is done and the independent testing is confirmed as being valid, then I'm sure the company will face whatever punishment they are apt to face in such circumstances. The short sellers will continue to be applauded as they have been and they will have proved their case.

    Until the government testing is done, this situation is inconclusive as far as I am concerned.

    If you agree with me fine. If you disagree with me, that's fine too. I will respect your opinion and I expect the same respect from you.
