What is the legal form of e-flux? The information above, and on
the 'about' page of e-flux.com, is remarkably vague. There is no
indication that e-flux is a non-profit organization. Quite on the
contrary, it seems to be run as a for-profit business, charging high
rates for mailing list announcements. It is in many ways the opposite
of a mailing lists like this one.

That e-flux wants to expand its business activities to domain
brokerage is logical, and by itself nothing wrong or obscene. But
this shouldn't be dressed up wand clouded with words like "network",
"community of people who make, study, present, and love art" and
"artist-run organization".
