    “A rough day”? Try a rough couple of years, down over 99%. Hard to do worse than that. So what’s a “rough day” here and there.
    This company is a textbook example of how not to do things, or how to screw over shareholders. Original founder John Schaeffer should be in prison, the way he personally profited while taking investors money year after year. All that money, some people’s entire savings, is completely gone now.
    Let me know when this is back to around 500 so I can cash out somewhat near even. Until then, “rough day” is just a bad joke.
