1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Those dances in the Rick show were the official steps for various historically black frats and sororities.

    If ebay, paypal and amazon keeps fucking up like they do, I can't see why someone can't run them over.

    lil bit different...myspace wasn't actually making money and didn't have jeff bezos running its business.

    margins are like 3-5% on e-commerce retail. first to market and scaling is (was) basically the entire competitive advantage.

    ebay/paypal are a diff story though.

    I highly doubt their margins are 3-5%.

    It's neat that you can hire a company, someone capable, with a modern, sw&d perspective, to produce a garment to your specifications, with as much or as little editorial interference as you want.

    Finn is pretty much right about the margins, but since they're spending so much to evolve into new markets, it's tough to say what their true margins would be like (see Item 6)

    http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1018724/000119312513028520/d445434d10k.htm#tx445434_10

    That said, that's all the more reason why Superego is correct in that nobody will be able to take over for Amazon. The scale of their operations combined with their excellent customer service, product offerings, and order turnaround time would be pretty much an insurmountable barrier to entry for all with the exception of Walmart.

    With the complaints being made here and everywhere else, I don't see why someone shouldn't be able to slowly but surely move in on both.
