The only reason I'm writing this instablog is to have a fact based debate on one of the most polarizing companies out their, BlackBerry. Formorly known as Research in Motion. Throughout this debate I may reference the company by its orgininal name only to remind people that changing your name doesn't change who you are.
Michael Blair recently wrote an article claiming that the negative bashing by SA users and the media conspiracy are behind the decline of Rimm's stock. Likely pure hogwash, but ok you can say that, no back it up. So here I am presenting an opportunity for all the Rimm bulls and especially the SA contributors to engage someone who knows a little bit about the market, who is also short this stock, and convince them on their perspective. In the spirit of good sport, if a convincing logical argument is sustained, I will cover my short position. However if by all accounts every argument presented is proven flawed or flat out wrong, agree to simply say in a post... "I could be wrong about this stock and this company." Simple isn't it?
So with all that said, present your cases.
