I thought it was funny he listed "greater respect" as a reason. I guess I am in the minority for having greater respect for them as a private company.

I would rather they DID NOT go public, at least not yet.

As far as I can tell, as private Internet companies go - they are the biggest as far as traffic and interest. Is this correct?
