So, most of us are bad too because we all want to keep our identity or what we own private?

Not really. I did a report on a local private company working on energy alternatives (renewable). You'd be surprised on out of all the questions I asked how few they could actually answer because of being a private company.

I know of hundreds of private companies where the owner reveals his/hers identity.

So being a private company doesn't mean the owner has to be private :)

But it means the owner doesn't need to be publicly known.
Anyways, I'll understand she mean "S.A."

true, but it also does not mean it is bad if the owner doesn't want to be known, which is what the issue here is (dixit toddy).

So? There are millions where the owner or invester doesn't want to be known.

There is nothing wrong in keeping things private; it is nothing bad at all.

That maybe some people don't like it is one thing, but the automatic association of private being bad is again one of those shortsighted assumptions which in practice, in the real world, don't have any ground at all.

I was just stating that i knew heaps of private companies that revealed who their owner was.

I don't need a lecture on if keeping things private is right/wrong/bad

Also i never said that i didn't like the fact that they were being private and i never said it was bad.

Well, Nathalie stated we don't get to know who owns it because it is a private company, not because the owner want to be private.

HAS MICROSOFT BOUGHT PLUS!??!?!

It can mean both things.

Nevertheless, whatever it is, not wanting to be known != automatically bad, which is what I'm replying on here.

No, you didn't explicitly said anything... that's what we are used from you.

Since Toddy made the connection that being private = bad, that was what I replied upon and what the later posts were about. So if you come here stating, right after my post, you know many private companies where the owner is known then either:

A) it was just a plain statement... making it of no relevance at all to what the current discussion is about (private=bad)... If so, my reply of "So?..." was more then rightfull.

B) you are trolling and trying to stir things up without explicitly stating stuff but implying a hell of a lot so you can easily make a reply like you just did making it look like you do nothing wrong and pushing the ball back.

I simply stated that that i know tons of private companies that reveal who the owner is, nothing more nothing less, now you are turning it into something more then it is (something we all have come to expect from you). You are trying to start an argument and derail the thread.

Please stop.

Sure, you stated that right after my post which corrected Toddy.... So, that was pure coincidence I assume... ok then...
So of course you're complete innocent again and I always start the fights...


EDIT: nice covering up btw.... all of a sudden you now quoted SonicSam so it seems you did absolutely nothing wrong... (y)
