These days, DAN's mission is making money...

I think it's pretty clear what DAN is up to these days and it's mostly about money. The problem with non-profits that start spinning off businesses is they get hung up on the bucks and start evaluating themselves in terms of the bottom line, corporate growth and the rest. That's why you hear DAN constantly referring to how big they are because that's the mission: corporate growth. I know DAN doesn't want to pay taxes but I think they should get out of the "non-profit" business--it's a disingenuous costume just doesn't fit their PADI-clone wheeling and dealing.
