You are asking for censorship, which is wrong.
We've had numerous (and often deserved) arguments on this listserver of
what is germane & proper. Well, if MirCorp isn't relevant subject matter
for a forum which purports to cover Russian-American activity in space, I
don't know what is.
Besides, Kostya, you can always use your [DELETE] key. Which you probably
will on this message.
Dwayne is also correct that this discussion is not "stock fraud". Before an
IPO, the only people who are prevented from exercising their First
Amendment rights (by the Securities & Exchange Commission) are people who
work for the company involved. or broker/dealers, or investors or
regulators, i.e., people who have a direct financial stake in the outcome.
Everyone else can speculate as much as they please. Yes, most stock hype
and "buzz" in "chat rooms" is probably fraudulent and illegal, but this is
not such stuff.
