The nice thing is that with the internet, you don't even have to hire a guy, which is what some used to (and still) do.

Begs a thought. Do people feel like they have to talk differently to women than they do to men? Males and females can have different ways of communicating. When the VCs talk to Keith, do they feel more comfortable phrasing their questions? Interesting, though, that the women are still the ones responding as both themselves and Keith. This seems to indicate that the VCs are interpreting the responses from "Keith" differently than the responses from the owners.
