Re the NSS myths it is easier to believe in predatory boogey-men like evil Market Makers, a derelict SEC who protect the evil Market Makers, bashers who 'shirley' must be shorters and not persons of enlightenment, and other phantom critters who create countless victims in their wake of NSS'ing.
It is too big a leap to consider that all blame for losses is from corrupted CEO's, CEO enablers (eg...I just spoke to CEO S.F. Brains and he swears he ain't diluting), serial diluters (except for CEO S.F. Brains who pinkie swears he ain't dilutin'), corrupted lawyers who write bogus legal opinion letters so that the serial diluters can sell illegally exempted from registration shares, incorrigible promoters and pumpers who would sell their first born to make a buck off the gullible, whack-job NSS conspiracists who spread their viral toxins to anyone they can influence, other hapless victims who are 'long' and pro-stock for all eternity, and poor individual assessment skills that blames boogey-men instead of the real culprits and most of all, themselves.
I'm sure I forgot a few.
