Then we progressed into the future and visited various milestones along the way such as the release of the Flexx theme, Builder, PluginBuddy, Backup Buddy, Webdesign.com, and iThemes Exchange.

If you can create a plugin of this type, I’m sure that other players online might eant to pay for it. I can’t count the zero’s you mentioned but wouldn’t it be enriching, knowing that the plugin killedSpam Blogs Forever.
