    There's a question missing from the Q&A. "What's in in for MoneySupermarket.com and how will they make a return on their massive investment?"
    There's love in this world for everyone. Every rascal and son of a gun.
    It's for the many and not the few. Be sure it's out there looking for you.
    In every town, in every state. In every house and every gate.
    Wth every precious smile you make. And every act of kindness.

    A very sad day for your unbiased opinions - a sell out! We now need a new unbiased independent website.

    Unfortunately the voice of the consumer has been bought, money can buy anything, anyone has their price and Mr Lewis has dumped on his own doorstep. To start with we will see no difference but drip by drip moneysupermarket will suffocate this site and strip it of all it's ways to turn the public's free advice into pure profit.

    Can this be described as the ultimate sellout?

    In the same way of Martin presumably makes money from the website. Details are given in the "How the site is financed" section.

    If it looks like a sellout and quacks like a sell out, it is a sell out.

    The site will turn into Motley Fool where they only promote companies that pay them.
