hypothetical question, but whats the difference between 'an organization
sponsoring us' and 'a company supporting us'?

the kicker is what they want in return.
another kicker is how much independance we lose. another hypothetical
question: would you rather have me continue paying the bill or be
dependant on an outside company(i asssume, corect if wrong) who's bottom
line is profits?

again, just hypotheticals and a quick poke about how builder.com has
sponsors too.
