OTOH, FX doesn't exclude being a social networking site either. After all, I 
got a job through here once so it does work at that. Just seemed like a nice 
bit of added value at low cost. Keep in mind there are a number of 
FX-oriented webpages out there, but no way to connect to them from the FX 
site itself.
