After David made his speech at the 2002 Ira Sohn Investment Conference, Allied launched a personal attack against him and Greenlight Capital. Rather than resort to similar tactics David and Greenlight Capital asked Allied Capital to stop the attack and focus on the issues at hand. During the next six years, David would continue to address the issues and wrote letters to Allied and its board. All of those letters and Allied’s responses are included below.
