    suggested investors would be held responsible.  This is holding the executives making the decisions that led to the situations responsible.  You're changing the entire conversation in order to try and prove your point.

      From "Givenoquarter":

      how much time do you think Lord Blankfein and his buddies deserve for starving millions of children in poor countries by speculating in the commodities markets and creating massive food and fuel bubbles?

      I'll note that he used the term speculators instead of investors -- which is a modest difference.  And note that when I was referring to investors, I was referring to active investors of the sort who make decisions to buy and sell commodities, and not someone who just has a stock portfolio.  So, no, it's not changing the conversation -- or if it is, I'm not the one who changed it.
