All I got to say is

IF it should ever happen and ecrater.com starts selling stock
and somebody don't tell me - I will be pissed as hell!
I been here since March 2005
working to build ecrater.com to what it is today ever since I started listing here - actually probably about a month before that.


I would come up with the cash some how because I know this is the greastest place there is!!!


In all reality - I doubt it will happen.

I don't think any investor would buy a stock unless there was some profit to it.
As ecrater gets a lot of stores up and lots of sellers, it will have to start charging fees.

Ecrater is not a charity.
Once sellers are established with a store, small initial fees will probably be acceptable to the sellers, especially, if they are making sales.

Now, on the other hand, if ecrater wants to be bought up by a competitor, that is another story. That could happen.
I hope not. I like ecrater. And I advertise for ecrater, myself, with business cards.

Has anyone heard of any solid news of Ecrater wanting to be bought up?

I am reminded of Martha Stewart Laughing who I have really come to like lately.
I used to make fun of my cousin because she liked Martha's Television Show.
Now, I also just love her Garden and Cooking tips!

You have to purchase stock at the inital public price -- but you can legally be on the list to 'pre-purchase'. There usually is some sort of rule -- for instance when our bank went public, you had to be a depositor as of the first of the year.

In the old days, the price would rise almost immediately so even if you sold an hour later, you could make money.

Yeah, but eCrater already has lots of active stores and sellers and has had them for quite a while. It's been around for four years, you know.
