Keeping His Eye on the Ball
Nobody can say that Overstock.com chief executive/conspiracy theorist/journalist-taunter/short-and-analyst-suer/"miscreant"-blamer Patrick Byrne isn't keeping his eye on the ball.
While his company limps along, Byrne has his eye keenly focused on what matters -- naked you-know-what.
He has filed a comment letter with the Securities and Exchange Commission on the evils of same, with numerous attachments. A copy can be perused here, right below "anonymous individual investor, Florida." A lot of these comments are anonymous, in keeping with the paranoia of the Baloney Brigades astroturf campaign.
