Subject: I will say this for SCOX

They know how to run a scam.

For some reason, I find scam's interesting. I always like con-man movies. And this is one great scam.

The NDA was another very smart move by SCOX. What else can somebody veiwing the code say, except: "it appears to be the same." SCOX had bimbo didio eating of their hand.

Hate SCOX all you want. But the truth is: SCOX has worked this entire scam brilliently.

Subject: Jail time for SCOX execs?

This is obviously as scam. Even the longs know it.

But if the scox execs can just walk away, then they have nothing to lose. scox is going to be out of business in two years anyway. some sco execs are already selling their shares. it really is a great scam.

scox execs have worded their statements fairly carefully. so they may walk away.

Subject: scox stock scam working like a charm

Scox insiders laughing all the way to the bank. Scox up 15% Friday, and another 12% so far today. Scox up over 600% since lawsuit started. Insiders selling like mad.

Linux user *still* don't get it. This is just a scam for the insiders to back out at insane valuation. Scox has never had a profitable year. In fact, Scox is a company with a book value of $10 million, and scox has lost as much as $125 million in a year. Scox was selling for way under a dollar in the last 52 weeks. Now this failing company is rich rich rich.

All because nobody can see what scox is *really* up to. There will be no attempt at licensing linux - don't be silly.

Why do you think insiders gave themselves a boat-load of options at $0.001 each when scox was planning this lawsuit in January? It's so obvious.

Subject: Will SCO name kill Vultus?

If I had a half-way decent product, I wouldn't want that product associated with SCO.

I don't know if Vultus WebFace was ever a hot seller. But I fully expect future sales to be zero.

SCO picked up $200,000 in debt from Vultus. No problem paying off that debt by selling over-inflated shares of scox for $15 a pop.

Mormon church may be some great scam artists.

You longs seem a desperate, I guess that's understandable.

>> especially msft stands by them<<

The scox scam is falling apart right now. Do you think msft and sunw want to be more closely associated with fraud and extortion?

I think you scox longs will find that companies like msft and sunw are strictly fair weather friends.

Subject: Cramming - Charging for Unauthorized


It's an old scam. Used by a lot of internet directory services. They would just attach unauthorized services to your phone bill, or send you a bill for services you never authorized.

Not so much different from what SCO is doing. SCO has no authorizition to force me to pay for using Linux. Yet SCO intends to sends to me a bill so my linux use will be "guarnteed legal."

The FTC cracked down hard on these cramming scams a few years ago. Yet the FTC seems to ignore the scox scam. At least so far.

Do you suppose scox would send me a bill explaining why I have to purchase UnixWare?

Subject: harping on indemnification issue,

claiming the gpl is invalid, claiming to cancel licenses of a company that no longer exists. . .

scox ranting becoming increasing desperate, and bizarre.

I am amazed that anybody can take this company seriously, even for a second. How can this scam not be completely obvious?

Subject: distribution?

Doesn't matter how high scox goes, unless there are real buyers at that level.

Sure, canopy companies can trade scox back and forth, and drive the price up, that's no trick. The trick is to be able to dump those over-priced shares on unsuspecting traders/investors.

There are retailers out there who will gamble on a few thousands shares. But scox insiders have millions of shares to unload. Seems to me it would be quite a trick to unload like that, before the whole scam falls through.

I wonder if the percentage of insider holdings has changed significantly? Seems to me that the lower that percentage, the harder it will be to manipulate price.

Subject: Timing of scox web-server problems

interesting I think.

1) Scox gets extension against redhat injunction.

2) Web-server goes down (scox blames ibm backed linux community).

3) Web-server is back up - but changed, lots of scox claims now missing.

4) Archieved claims are missing - can't be found with serch engines.

5) Scox is now saying: "we were never going to sue anybody."

Desperate little scam. Will it work?

Subject: more enron-like behavior

The canopy shell game is clearly enron-like.

Another enron like scam is the shredding of evidence.

I don't know if scox has the shredding machines going all night (wouldn't doubt it). But it does appear that sco is trying to eliminate evidence from their site, and from the web.

Wonder if it will work?

Subject: Of course it's a scam.

That's not even worth discussing anymore.

The only things to discuss now are: what's there next move and can they get away with it?

Forget scox winning any lawsuits, that doesn't even matter very much.

Maybe the only thing that matters is fud money. As long as sunw-msft keep throwing gobs at money at scox, then scox will be profitable. I think that is all that the longs are counting on. So far, the longs seem to be right.

negitive news. Nothing new here.

Amazing how anybody can see this as anything but a scam. Be interesting to see what happens around the middle of this month.

Yesterday was another smart move by scox insiders: release fake news, then retract it the next day. Scox always goes up on phoney news, and doesn't fall when news is retracted or proven phoney.

Insiders are making absolute fools of the US justice system. Oh well. . .

Subject: Deutsche is in on the scam

7:08AM SCO Group started with a Buy at Deutsche; target $45 (SCOX) 15.53: Deutsche Securities initiates coverage with a Buy rating and $45 target, as firm views SCOX as a call option on a substantial lawsuit against IBM and the potential to capitalize on Linux; firm says the IBM lawsuit and the potential for Linux licensing deals offer plenty to be excited about, since if SCOX is successful at licensing its intellectual property then fixed costs and a small share count would create huge EPS leverage, while failure could render the shares worthless.

Subject: Will novl sue scox?

I sure would if I were novl. I can't imagine a company in a stronger position to win such a lawsuit. Novl knows everything about the ATT/BSD deal. Novl can truthfully claim that they are harmed by scox's extortion scam.

My guess is: novl's suse purchase has been in the works for a long time. That may be the only reason that novl/suse hasn't filed a suit against scox already.

Subject: no case = no case

I don't care who's representing you.

Besides, it's perfectly obvious that scox isn't going to trial to sue ibm.

This entire thing is not crazy or stupid. If you look at it in terms of a stock scam, everything makes perfect sense.

To me, the saddest part, is the abysmal ineptitude of the US justice system, and the US legal system. Sad, just pathetically sad. Even a bunch of losers like canopy/scox can make a dishonest fortune, and laugh all the way to the bank. Laugh at the US justice system, and with good reason.

I don't know the particulars for today, but that is the bottom line, and everybody knows it, including the longs, and the insiders.

Just a matter of how long they can keep the scam going. My guess: no longer than mid-february. Q1 will be a disaster.

Subject: This case make ibm/linux look good

I think this case makes IBM and linux look good. And scox/msft/sunw look bad.

IBM must not have done anything wrong, since IBM is so determined not to settle - looks good, damn good. IBM must know they can win. IBM is not scared by scox threats. IBM is on the side of right.

This case also makes Linux also look good. No, Virgina, Linux isn't just a toy OS supported by bunch of hippies. Linux is serious enterprise capable OS. Good enough to scare the snot of msft and sunw. Good enough for IBM to defend tooth and nail. The linux community has been made more defiant, and it scare the scam artists.

Scox/msft/sunw are nothing but stock-scam artists, fudsters, and extortionists. Their products are not good enough to compete with linux on merrit. These sleaze bags must stoop to fud and extortion to try to hold on to their market share.

Since this case, I have gained respect for IBM, and lost respect for scox/sunw/msft.
