Our accounts receivables have increased by a large number (definite bad sign, I need to keep an eye on this one).

Board of directors is controlled by insiders, nobody is watching to see if management is screwing up (except you and me, gp?!?)

some of our sales growth is based upon an acquistion of an already established business (weddingpages) rather than intrinsic growth...

the knot has high audience turnover (audience consists largely of bride-to-bes, who are likely to disappear from the site after they are married). On the other hand, the knot is likely to have a loyal (and motivated) audience for the length of the wedding engagement, at least a year. Furthermore, the knot appears to have strong word of mouth--AOL is only responsible for 16% of the knot's audience.
