Subject: Since when does a company have to lose money?

Cyber-cynic,

Personally I think it is the sign of a GOOD business plan to make money in year 1. It is not OBLIGATORY to blow away millions of (venture) capital before making a dime. Look at the current back-lash against internet startups. One particular .com, which I will not mention, spent 130 Million UD$ in its first year of operation. It was live on the net for just a few months.

Second point, even if a company you direct or own makes lots of money, it does not mean you are rich personally.

Thirdly, if IOD does make a lot of money, given that the new TLDs will GREATLY ENHANCE COMPETITION ( they will, won't they?), that is good!
