    Oooh, I'm really interested. I don't think I have any real questions, but I want to see what they have to say.

    That would be interesting to see. I do doubt they will be honest or truth-telling about everything.

    I'd like some insight into the financial state of neo when they were let go. Also why their security is such shit that data leaks are practically a regular occurrence.

    Honestly it can go either way.

    They were let go without notice and that must of struck a nerve. They may not go into detail but I do see them being pretty honest with their answers.

    Because paying for a security audit costs upwards of $100,000 and for a site as big as Neo back in the day, I wouldn't be surprised if it cost millions. They probably wanted to cut costs and neglected having this done...

    Wonder if cutting corners was worth it in the end, considering that it probably has driven away a significant number of players and increased the burden on their pathetically inadequate customer service.

    No it wasn't because in the end their company lost millions of members which equals billions of annual dollars. It's a very sad story.
