Any DIR stockholders and account holders who want to continue to do business with CSFB step right up? They will take your DIR now for $4. Thanks a bunch. I'll be gone as a customer. Customer Service 101----Don't screw them over. CSFB should have done the right thing and taken this step at the same time they bought DLJ and for a similarly valued price. But nope, there were people to be taken advantage of. Think about that when you make your next (and hopefully) last trades with CSFB.
