Parent article: SCO ends another year
The "private investor" who was allowed to ask a question wasn't a softy.
He runs one of the websites providing information about the SCO lawsuit
and it isn't too favorable to SCO. His questions were probably not the
most important ones to ask, but they were something that made SCO squirm
a little. Notice no other questions were allowed after his.
I of course agree that the vast majority of people who are allowed to ask
questions are of the favored-reporter status and the question quality is
generally very low. SCO probably does filter them based on what type of
questions they expect. Maybe they just didn't realize that the private
investor was someone shorting their stock.
