Response to Wall Street Journal Article

“Good morning, Mr. Siegel. I hope you’re happy. You cost me $14,000.00 for no reason! What do you have against this mammoth company? Are you jealous because you didn’t get in on the run-up? Did you want to buy in cheaper? You have no business making decisions like this. After all, you’re still a child when it comes to Internet knowledge.
