Well - if they're not paying for a storefront, it could easily be someone with a day job who's hoping someone, somewhere, will bite.

As for 'fastest growing', well, if they went from one user to five in a year that's a 400% growth rate. Sounds a bit seedy for a use of statistics?

Well, there are constant TV commercials for a 'new' phone company coming from an ISP - and they say they're the fastest growing. By percentages, the smaller you are the easier it is to have a high growth rate. Lies, Damn Lies, etc.

Straw Poll

Have you ever taught anyone to code?
"Teaching" can mean from start to finish, or simply just helping someone learning to code work through a coding issue (like helping with homework or being a support tutor)
And how did it go?
