What with the collapse of Zynga and Facebook shares, isn't it time already that we stopped counting bodies and started counting profits?

Facebook and Zynga have proved what everyone should already know (but the world seems to have forgotten), that "We lose $10 on every sale but make it up in volume" is NOT a rational business strategy. Similarly, every online customer costs something to support in terms of machines, bandwidth, etc. If you don't make more then that on them in profits, then that customer is a loss. And the more customers you have at a loss, the *less* money you make.
