Which is exactly why you should wait until they announce the terms of  
use, quality, reliability, integrity and fee schedule before assuming  
it's all bad stuff. :) You are not going to get your questions  
answered until they are able to answer them. They have made it clear  
that they are not ready to divulge the details of the service, yet. I  
see all this speculation and complaining about the service and no one  
even knows what the service will cost or exactly what they will  
provide. Yikes! I admire their courage for starting out on this  
business venture. I would never want to provide any such service if  
this is the response I would get.
