So when did Capitalism become a dirty word?

If you derive value from using something (a house, a hotel, a restaurant, a book, a website), is it not reasonable that the owner of whatever the thing is have an expectation of deriving some value from you in return?

For example, Old Fart underwrites, and advertises Panamint Springs Resort on the website. It's a reasonable expectation that the website, while providing a useful service to us, could also provide a useful service to him.

And guess what, if he wanted to he or Randy could stop any of us from using this website.

[I know you're talking about a different site, I'm just using this one as an example.]

You gotta take the yin with the yang. You didn't want the Yin so the withheld the Yang - all is in balance.
