I don't mind that Tim Hanson made a bad call on Yongye and got sucked in by management's sweet talk and spin. I've fallen for stock scams in the past myself, it's a part of life.
What I do mind is that he wrote this nasty little article about me http://www.fool.com/investing/international/2011/02/10/the-c... . My report was not sloppily researched, and it was "serious" and "detailed" contrary to Mr. Hanson's assertions. Yongye's aggressive accounting practices have led to the stock's implosion over the past year.
It's one thing to be fantastically wrong on a pick -- like Mr. Hanson has been -- and another to go and defame critics who in fact were right. Had he investigated my claims when YONG still traded at $7, he could have saved himself face and his subscribers a lot of money.

@1.49 today. This selloff is a wee bit overdone.
The latest changes in CAPS stock eligibility have gone too far in my opinion. Now I can't rethumb $500M companies with stock prices over a buck such as Copper Fox. I understand the idea of trying to keep more illiquid stocks out of CAPS, but I think we have gone too far in the wrong direction.
