Regarding short attacks:
My understanding is that the shorts can only "borrow" real available shares. If all the longs were to place limit sell orders on their shares at, say $40, would this make them unavailable to the shorts?

I'm still stuck on the Craig Hallum bit about 14.5MM shares changing hands. How can that be if it does indeed exceed the float (longs and insiders excepted)? Whatchathink?
