I think Nahmsya's solitary vs community argument is the first one I've ever heard. Anytime I see something new, I think the discussion has been positive.

- I don't want my tax dollars going to no...

If nothing at all, giving someone access to a computer, should get rid of some of the fear. It's important not only for our young people, but for the older generation. If my folks could go online and compete for a better 2nd mortgage, rather than go back to the same bank they been with for years..
