Hey! You know what's needed? A real, fully supported "Association of Independent Websites."
In virtually every other industry there are broadscale associations with the power of their membership behind them to negotiate with monopolistic entities, government regulatory agencies, etc.
As long as even quite large websites operate on a totally individual basis with no lobbying/advocacy association to protect our interets, our businesses can be affected by the whims of others.
