Bigger problem that investors were pricing worth on the value of
"members" and "clients".
The amount of money people are prepared to pay for what are now free
services is a lot less than most people think. You would pay a pound a day
for a paper newspaper. But how much for an online one ?
I'm sure Eazel had some ideas for making money. But it sure as hell never
