My comment was based solely on the report of them taking on debt. When
Roy mentioned the same thing back when MS was trying to beat Yahoo into
submission, this was reported by onlince sources. Roy repeated those
and used the term "approaching debt", whcih was consistent with what he
was quoting. Yet, when that took place, it was FUD and
misrepresentation on the part of Roy (who was repeating what the
article[s] said) and on the part of the sources he was quoting.
Why is it not so when Bloomberg says it now?
Erik constantly claims Roy "knows" things based on Erik having told him
so, despite Erik being filtered by Roy.
Timmy needs to take a drink to calm down. Or stop drinking and get
sober. Whatever the case may be, Timmy needs to do the opposite of
whatever it is he's doing.
