Well, the WSE did open again. Of course, in the last few days I have made a few posts that have been critical of the WSE, in an effort to get people to think twice before throwing money into it, hoping to cash in.
So, I went to the newly opened website, and tried to log in. No luck. I went to Hope Capital Island and tried to reset my password - but the ATM would not reset it. I found out that people who had provided an email to the WSE already had their account keyed to that email, so I went to the webpage and asked for my password to be reset, and sent to me.
I was surprised when in fact a new password arrived a few seconds later! So, I went onto the site and logged in, only to receive the following message:
"Your account has been locked by an admin"
Luke Connell is, of course, the admin. So, apparently he has locked my account.
Now, to DDE shareholders - I had more than 234,000L in cash in my WSE account - I had deposited it there a few days before the closure, in order to pay dividends for the next month or so. I also held shares in a number of companies at that time - including a whopping 11,000,000+ shares of WTF, and some of HCL, and a couple other companies.
So, by locking my account, Luke has frozen assets that belong to YOU.
I hope you all know that I try to place my ethics before everything else in whatever I do, and I stand by my reputation as an honorable and fair business woman. I have, as far as I know, never stolen anything from anybody. I have been fair and generous whenever I could, wanting to reward you all for placing your faith in me and in DDE.
So, it is particularly galling to me that the WSE, the vehicle that brought us all together, as it were, is now turning around and fucking me. And not in the nice way. The worst part of it all, is that I am not surprised at all - since I did decide to finally speak out. But that doesn't make it RIGHT!
And, it is all because I have an opinion that isn't popular with the owner of the WSE - i.e. that it is a highly risky endeavour, and the owner has shown himself to be without honour. In his megalomaniacal mind, that justifies the theft of OUR assets.
So, I hope that DDE investors will be outraged by this. I hope that they will make their outrage known in a tangible way. I hope that Luke will reach deep down inside and find an ounce of decency to do the right thing and stop stealing from people that are critical of him.
I will not stoop to making meaningless threats. I have contacted Luke and asked him to return the cash that was in my account, and depending on his response, or lack thereof, will take whatever steps I think are appropriate.
I know that others like Casper and Spontaneous (and more) have been through the same thing - and with many more assets to lose - so I don't want to be a prima donna about it. Suffice it to say that what Luke has done, again, is just plain wrong, and right-minded people cannot continue to suffer his unethical and arbitrary actions.
