    Hurray, the SEC finally has shown some progress! Boo, they turned a 9 page law into a 585 page set of rules!!! I’d ask “what were they thinking” but the answer is obvious…

      Thanks Luni. So far, I’ve been pleasantly surprised at what I’ve been able to digest of the proposed rules. Nothing horrific so far, at least not that I’ve discovered. A big improvement over the Proposed Reg D/Form D rules.
