It appears that this discussion has gotten off on the wrong foot.

To Our Friends In Canada: please understand that we at TMF have all heard horror stories about hype and dump posts that have badly burned investors. It wasn't until I went back and reviewed previous posts that I realized that we had solicited information on Wi-lan. Unfortunately the speed and enthusiasm of your response raised our caution flags. I believe that our concern about a Canadian stock was not due to any lack of respect for Canadian companies but to us realizing that information on a Canadian stock, on an unfamilar stock exchange would be difficult to obtain and therefore perfect for a "hype and dump" scheme. I don't think this has to be a US vs Canada thing. The last time I looked the US and Canada shared the largest undefended border in the world. Certainly we can share this board.

I appreciate the threads that you have supplied and would like to keep a discussion going on Wi-lan. I am a technological blockhead so I need the give and take of a good discussion to help me understand the product.
Can we start over?
