Starling, did you stay short into the most recent collapse? I got frightened out at 40.

Looking back, I am disappointed with the Fool boards in a way. When I shorted PCLN at 87, I posted to the PCLN board what I thought, and was flamed and ridiculed quite aggressively.

Now of course everyone knows about hotwire.com and can see the possibility of trouble, but the time to get short was when the board was most bullish.

It's a pity for any Fools who got sucked in up there.
