Maybe the reason is that some people rely on MORE than just a cooperative network to support their businesses. They rely on cooperative communities, they rely on cooperative governments, and they rely on cooperative companies to provide jobs, etc. For a person tucked away in a cabin in the woods in Canada without a TV and without contact with urban areas, you may not be able to understand. Unfortunately, many of the people in the real world have different challenges that face them each day, because of that they have different solutions than the ones you dream up. Have you considered that people DO understand that ARIN is "just another form of cooperation", but the problem is it is a cooperation of people that are out of touch with the needs of the real world ? -- Jim Fleming Unir Corporation http://www.Unir.Corp Check out...http://Register.A.Mall - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
