I'm not sure what point you're trying to make.
But the only point I'm trying to make is that there are sites out there that are growing, both in terms of visits and conversions. It's not doom and gloom across the board, regardless of what you read on forums.
Edit: Yes, registration is free, but we make our money during the registration process via lead gen. But you can't register without providing a US address.
