Too kind words, from someone who's whipping my butt.


Oh, and by the way, on this topic, I called Manchester's IR folks and asked two questions:


1) how do you square a PR calling this recent paid advertisement "independent?"


2) is Manchester involved with Blue Chip IR (the firm paying these other firms to come up with coverage.


To my surprise, they answered.


1) it's "independent" because the analyst didn't own shares. (Never mind, I guess, that the $80K, is paid for a certain purpose, and Bridge IR says it retains the right to sell during the pump.


2) Manchester IS in fact, paying Blue Chip IR.


So, to summarize: Manchester is paying Blue Chip, and Blue Chip is paying these other companies to pump Manchester.


Therefore, Manchester is paying to pump its own stock, just as it did with MN1...


Doesn't take a genius to figure out why...
