its just craig sanders expressing some his anarchistic tendencies.

nothing wrong with that but one could just as well say the same about
mining companies or any other form of business. the reality is domain companies
have to cover the cost of developing systems, staff, rents and then make a return 
for shareholders just like any other business.

one only has to compare the difference between how works now
as to how it used to work when it was volunteer staffed. chalk and cheese.
