I think people have misunderstood my reply to the original message where
I suggested that the proposed service is like CompuServe.

My point was that the Internet is not CompuServe, i.e., not a for-profit
service. In fact, it's not a servie at all, in the sense of having
consumerism as its main focus.

I agree that my response was a tad irresponsible, however, it was
prompted by sadness in seeing that this is the type of thing that is
going to be happening on the Internet.

I too had a CompuServe account for a few months and never used it. Why?
Especially since all fees would be going into the Block brothers' pockets
(Henry and Robert, I think).
