warisproduct: I for one had a hard time shorting the airlines (I didn't). If you did, you're a schmuck. With a capital UCK.

It didn't really occur to me to be honest, I spent more time wondering if they were cheap enough to buy.

But why would a short seller be a schmuck with a capital UCK? He neither picks your pocket nor breaks your leg... nor the pocket and leg of America collectively. A short seller does not inconvenience anyone except someone else who planned to sell that day. Why is one seller more patriotic than another?
