This is eye-opening. All of this fallout makes sense once I hear about it, but I never could have predicted it, either. Thanks for the note of hope that crowd-sourcing may collapse. In this race to the bottom, no one is winning. It's like a mad reverse-pyramid scheme.

I was surprised to learn about it as well, Josh. I disagree that crowd sourcing should be demonized, but I just don't see what all the hype is about - it's not the greatest business model for anyone involved. I am not sure how well it will do in the future.

Thanks for stopping by.
