who owns this site?
Who cares who owns the site? Who's running it is what I'd like to know. The decisions and priorities and choice of web development team seem to be out of sync with what's really needed nowadays.

The owner of Craigslist is Craig Newmark, the owner of Ebay is Pierre Omidyar... both searchable online. Both transparent with their clients base. The original poster didn't ask for address? Just who the founder of the site was. It's a legitimate question and not at all an invasion of privacy.
Most competent business people will ask or inquire about who they are dealing with in both ownership and management. It's just smart business practice to know when working with, investing in, or associating with any entity? Who the key player in that entity are. Some people base their choice to work with a company or be represented by a company based on the ownership or management of said company.
It's called... due diligence.

The ownership and management of Guru have never hidden who they are. As Betsy pointed out some time ago, if you wanted to know their names you can locate that data on the site. But what is your purpose in doing so?
The owner of Craigslist doesn't post his or her name and address online. Neither does the owner of Ebay, or the thousands of other companies out there that we all deal with but never give my consideration. It's not an important detail of the relationship. They provide a product or service that you seek, you're happy (supposedly) to have that product or service, so their identity, address, family ties, etc really have nothing to do with that business relationship.
If I have missed the point of this thread please let me know. There appears to be some disconnect in the logic - how does knowing the site owners name or personal details have anything to do with your perceived experience of the site and what it has to offer?
