    Love this direction. The logistics sound a bit scary. But it seems to have potential.

    Do you think people would donate?

    Nice to see lots of contention. I don't understand why the longs are so indignant. Time will tell, right? And you need someone on the other side of every trade.

    Thanks. This feels like an interesting direction. Lots of work and challenges ahead, but should be fun.

    I didn't think it was necessary to clarify, but "for free" here equals "without asking users to pay us."

    There are many businesses that do both (charge and sell ads). Our "free" website doesn't charge.

    Thanks Michael,

    I love you too.

    I thought your mea culpa on NBY yesterday (http://seekingalpha.co...) was classy. Will be interested to hear if you have further thoughts as to where things go from here.

    Response: Larry, thanks for your concern. You have made it loud and clear that this isn't interesting to you. I respect that.

    I find the evolution of Seeking Alpha interesting, and write about it. I view that as one small part of my role as editor-in-chief. Sometimes that serves a dual purpose of marketing a paid product we're selling or helping to sell (such as this article), sometimes it doesn't (such as the series on pseudonymity).

    I have no plans to bury this discussion in a dark corner of the website. Nor do I think it contaminates everything else.

    Chris is not as spokesman for SA. Neither are you. You both have the freedom to comment on my and others' articles, and are both expressing it. The difference is that Chris is participating in the discussion, while you keep popping in in an attempt to shut it down.

    Maybe you should stop reading my articles and commenting on them, and focus on the areas of Seeking Alpha that you find less antagonistic.

  • New Story On Second Sight Shows The Technology Is Gaining Traction [View article]
    @George, is your assumption that management potentially had access to shareholder-friendly financing, but chose to issue the convertibles because it was somehow to their advantage? Or did they issue the convertibles because they were up against a wall? If the latter, the real question isn't how management has financed in the past, it's whether the company will be forced to once again raise money on unfavorable terms.

    Customer review section: It's in the development pipeline. Fully agree.

    The reality check is their subscribers. Subscribers can unsubscribe at any time, no questions asked, and get refunded for all unused time. To me, that's a better reality check than the most contentious comment stream.

    Pointing out what non-paying users get, and that we have consistently striven to make paid areas of our website additive to non-paying users rather than subtractive is a statement of fact, not a sense that anyone's doing anyone a favor. Ad-supported businesses are businesses too, and the same mechanics (supply & demand, competition for audience, etc.) that apply to paid businesses apply to ad-supported ones.

    "You need to keep that content worthwhile and keep improving that offering."
