Here is something weird, and a little creepy:
The freakshow that is DeepCapture.com seems to have grabbed all of the Facebook friends of anyone who has ever: a) written anything positive about short selling or 2) said anything negative about Overstock.com.
For those of you who are unaware of what DeepCapture is, the name suggests that the short sellers have “Captured” the press. Deep Capture is a work of Patrick Byrne, founder of Overstock.com.
For the record, I am in favor of shorting stocks, but do not favor naked shorting, which is against SEC rules.
