I concur and remain still very cautious, the difference is in that I am already well into this and up to the last PR was very concerned, suspicious, paranoid even.
Right now I cannot get past the obvious aspect of what we have being publicly reported - $350 MILLION dollars and you have got to love even the way the PR was worded to make sure that it was understood by numeral and written out ... That is a huge number. As far as I am concerned this is putting everything on the line, it is extremely black and white - This is either the most blatant and absurd 'scam' ever perpetrated or ...
To be honest I have waffled back and forth over this since day one, sometime in August. Have followed this board religiously throughout and only recently jumped into the fray. The DD is a bit like being a Private Eye but it's out there, a lot of it can be extrapolated from many posters here and sought out. At one point I went back to the first post here and read (speed read style) up to a couple of thousand. It lent itself to reading up on the former company (Equus) and the subsequent lawsuit - The names involved, the lengths they went to to go after the former criminals ... It lent itself to some credibility and still does even if I remain cautious. Quite a bit more could be said. The recent increase of the OS still has many wondering ...
Something I did want to throw out there as a lingering ... musing that I have had for awhile is ... I can't help but think that there may be just some naiveté' on Dean's part regarding the publicity side of matters. One of the things that drew me in originally was the "Conference Call" - A bit botched in the beginning but his demeanor and disposition gave me a sense of being very much Old School. At one point there was a question asked about being listed on the OTCQX(?) or a higher tier and Dean's response was basically "What is that?" I took it as somewhat refreshing, that it was really the least of his concerns at the time and that naiveté' again. Had the same response about the website as you did originally but also plug this into the same musing wondering if it isn't more of the same. The PR's themselves - They seem just bizarre if this was some carefully crafted setup - "Halt the buyback, I am buying some of these cheapies" - "Done now, commence the buy back" - It's lacking all the usual spit and polish that would go on with the pie in the sky claims, all of it in broad daylight. It's what has made this far more intriguing.
I remain a hair skeptical still, a bit less cautious perhaps after Friday's PR - But I also picked up another chunk for the collection on Friday. :)
PS. Where did you meet up with the Red Rocker? I ran into him in my old job some 20 odd years ago.
