You really don't get it do you? 


A company puts alot of effrot into its works, and generally when a company hides their address its for several reasons.


1) its run out of the home

2) it wishes to avoid being served

3) Its location often changes to avoid making payments

4) its location often in some hick little village that the address is actually a minus to its business plan.  Example Bay Street service run from say Port Hope Ontario (anyone from Port Hope, sorry did  random pick)

5) the location is not wihtin the business targed nation (run from India, africa, Utah) 



my comments on your domain hiding was actually refactored comments from others on the Perl list sent to me in private so I snipped their names , blended it and took the best over all quote and quoted it directly leaving out the names.


Good luck to you, you really have legit job try posting on jobs.perl.org, if its investimentors then your not on the list legit.


If I was an investor first thing I'd want to know is where the company is, what do they do and can i make money.  As someone who has worked for Accenture / Morgan Stanely I'd want to know the basics of what a company does, who they are and where my money is going.


Now I have never heard of you, that means nothing really as lots of companies exist in the world.   I Suggestion you put the address on and I suggest if you have specific jobs to offer here on the list , Do so.


Until then, I recommend no one deal with you

Just for the record, I am not sure what you are referring to. My email listed an email and phone number, along with a website that describes what we do. I reckon that’s  about enough when the only avenue you can write to is a ‘webmaster’. Please get real.
I suggest your group creates a better defined avenue if you intend to facilitate potential job opportunities to come through. If, as your email suggests, there are members in your group who may be looking for opportunities, your gating process may be quite counter-productive. An aggressive reply from a hotmail account? The only reason I am replying is  that I believe that this approach does not represent all your members.
If there is anyone interested in actually finding out what opportunities exist, let me know. If anyone is turned off by working for a company whose website is with Networksolutions (yes, from Virginia), I can’t help.

It helps a great deal if you post your actual address some place, its even missing from the website.
The first thing I look at is money. Second,is the location of the job.
Also when doing business with a company I always find it fishy when the a company hides their address from myself as a client or as an investor.
