By the way, just to give you all confidence in the market; insiders and institutions hold 92% of the float. We can only assume that they are not participating in the short attack (as pointed out by the March 2011 writers). That leaves about 63,000 shares owned by the likes of you and me. Volume through mid-day is 2.2 million. Trade equals one buyer and one seller. Geez, that smells bad.

Are you saying that the float available for shorting does not include shares owned by institutions? My understanding, which should not be given too much weight, is that the shares owned by institutions can be available for shorting.
