Goldman-Sachs is going to make so much money off this. Not so sure about the investors.

Does anyone else look at fb and remember yahoo? It's a near-first-generation technology that looks really, really ugly.

Anybody who has the cash to invest in a Goldman Sachs special purpose vehicle knows what s/he's getting into. They can, and are, appreciating the risks of investing in an entity that's not going to open its books for its investors. I don't normally have a libertarian bent, but I simply say caveat emptor.
