from the standpoint of a potential investor, i'm already turned off.
this random person signs on to the aha, has one single post of 11 words asking for money. if this post is any indication of how he or she plans on running the business it is likely to fail. the fact is that this person has done absolutely nothing that would demonstrate their credibility for potential investors. in fact, in my mind they have demonstrated that they are not someone who i would consider entering into a business arrangement. that is to say, procuring investors is not like panhandling for loose change on the street, which is exactly how this person is going about it.
the fact is that this is a public forum. if there is a limit to the length of posts he's definitely not going to run into it with 11 words. as i see it, this person has stated his or her case, so i think all these sarcastic responses are totally warranted. so as far as i am concerned, flame on.
