edco... first, my name isn't Debra :)

Second, we seem to be speaking a different language. I agree that its difficult for reinvested shares not to be replacement shares. That was exactly my point! So how did you say it was contrary to my post?

Because the unclaimable loss is added back to the basis of the REPLACEMENT shares

Agreed. But what if you sold the replacement shares too in that same sale? That's my point.

But really, you say 'contrary to my post' and then say something that was my point. And you call me Debra. Until I figure out where the big miscommunication is, I'm not sure we're gonna agree on this one.
