Thanks for the review, Dorset. I've always assumed it did not meet the criteria of this board, similar to APPS, because it is not a *new* big growth story and is not really a software product for sale. Appreciate the writeup. That is ridiculous, almost unbelievable growth.

I happened to buy MELI in August from a mechanical screen of 10 stocks I run based on Tom Bowley's aggressive growth criteria (, frontage). It happens to be one of the last 2 I've held through to earnings without "profit latching" out in the recent unpleasantness.

APPS exploded this spring in a different segment of that social media / online marketplace segment. But I had not held on to that one. And I just hold my nose at what APPS does, not interested.
