By the way, the Pink Sheets and the OTC Bulletin Board are two different things! After 2.5 years of referring to them interchangably, I found out a few weeks ago (Go me!) that the pink sheets are the land of the low where investors in stocks delisted from the OTC bulletin board may possibly find quotes.

I didn't know that BB and Pink Sheets were two different things.

Sheesh, you guys really didn't know this?? Yikes. ; )

So, should I even bother informing you two that there is actually one more level below the pink sheets?

It's referred to as an off-listed market, or a "gray market," where you can surrender your virtually worthless shares to a broker, which is discussed a bit here on the sister RB board... http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=17720241

and here...

Obviously, only the cream-of-the-crop is traded there. RB Port, step aside! There's a new kid in town... the Gray Market Port!!

(Kidding, of course.)
