Those are some pretty cool mottos. I like NC's, but maybe I'm a little partial.

Well can't blame you to be partial, you have good reason to. It is better "To be rather than to seem" :)

Nice information, many thanks to the author. It is incomprehensible to me now, but in general, the usefulness and significance is overwhelming. Thanks again and good luck! Web Design Company

Interesting layout on your blog. I really enjoyed reading it and also I will be back to read more in the future.

Thanks you. Very good post.Unless they can offer a really compelling reason for users to come back, it will be the next Bebo, MySpace
