Its a disservice for to suggest others hold or buy such a risky stock. It might be a disservice if the suggestion was that YONG should be bought because it was a low risk stock. But if you dig back through a couple years of postings, you should find that it has always been portrayed by Tim and the GG team as being a risky stock that should not form a major part of one's portfolio.

I feel the risks have been exposed here at GG and persons who have been paying attention have enough information to decide if this is an appropriate investment for them. That ultimate decision is a very personal one.

What I think would be a disservice would be to urge others to buy only stocks commonly believed to be safe. While the risk in safe stocks is generally felt to be a low return on investment, many "safe" stocks prove to be anything but safe.
