You're kidding, right?

After ridiculous fortunes won and lost on incoherent strategies and
full-blown hype, you actually expect ANYTHING that comes out of
organizations like, Jupiter or IAB to start making sense?

Don't forget, these are the same guys who sank millions into pimply
faced kids who never earned a dime in their lives, then scratched
their heads in wonder as each venture crashed on the rocks.

What makes you think they'd start acting rationally now?
