On2 Shareowners Rebellion

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Mark Latham @ 4:09 pm

In the past three days I’ve received emails and comments (here, here, here & here) from shareowners of On2 Technologies – see the Yahoo Finance On2 message board, especially this post. Here is my response:

Thank you for contacting me.

Your horse has escaped, and you are chasing it through the forest. You want me to help chase your horse. I’m not good at chasing horses. I’m good at locking barn doors, and that’s what I’m doing. If I stop doing that to chase your horse instead, I won’t be much help at catching it, and meanwhile more horses will be escaping. But I do wish you success in catching your horse!
