    As a merchant, we received a similar message while back. Basically, it is serving the fact that there is another party that is taking an interest in your service agreement. Take to the legal group but it is more a formal step in the process of merging two companies. I don't think anyone could possibly interpret anything from the email that will tell us anything meaningful that we don't already "not know".

    Then again, I have been amazed before. I guess the challenge is out there for someone to twist this into a conspiracy theory... Just kidding everyone.

    I am as eager as anyone else to see what happens in three-to-six months.... it is almost like a jail sentence to wait and see.

    Predictions:

    More sales, but lower commissions, longer wait to be paid. Care to guess who comes out ahead on those terms?

    More fly-by-night programs disguised as legitimate opportunities. Bigger, louder, more annoying ads everywhere. More spam for everyone.

    Less convenient, harder to use interface ... but at least it will work equally poorly in all browsers.

    Looks like VC has their eyes set on being the MS of e-commerce. "You vill deal vit us, or you vill do nuthing!"

    Too bad. CJ had such promise, once upon a Minnesota morning ...
