For all those who are currently musing the issues enveloping the above two chat forums.
I refer you to my post of 19th December 2009 regarding Bashers operating on III.
I specifically named NTOG and Nighthawk energy as being targeted by Bashers.
At the time of the posting there was a great wailing and gnashing of the teeth from some over on the boards. Allegeding that the post was nonsense. How wrong they were. As usual this blog has called it correctly some 7/8 months before the issue finally came to a head.
Now we see that in actual fact some companies (rightly or wrongly) are going after posters. This in my view is bolting the door after the horse has gone. Nighthawk, Ntog et al are in my opinion merely trying to cloud over their respective company performance.
I feel genuinely sorry for Matt Lofgran and i personally think he is genuine. Unfortunately he has taken the unenviable task of trying to turn NTOG around. But that still doesn’t negate Ntogs’ terrible performance over the last 12months. What these companies need to do is to differeniate between legimate shorters and paid Bashers.
Nighthawk have failed their share-holders, Ntog have failed and so too has Empryean.
As for III/ADVFN i find their respective behaviour reprehensible particulary as both organisations failed to address the matter until forced to do so by legal action. They have both spilled their guts breaking confidentiality when in fact this problem should of been resolved in-house last year.
I hope that the companies now embroiled in this mess can put the same amount of energy into turning their respective organisations round for the benefit of all. I and this blog wish them well.
