I'm no fan of HFT, but just because they can push the market around doesn't mean they really benefit from it. It makes more sense to trade in the direction of the market, regardless of whether you scalp or work on a longer time frame, to do anything otherwise is to take on a lot of risk, like artisimo said. So if they actually are doing that, which I doubt, they're just going to get their asses handed to them in or out of court.
