After picking through each page of this topic to see what the buzz said, I'm going to speak my piece.
I might not be overly well known on NG, but I try to stay active in the community, and I may not have been here the longest, but I've loved every minute of my time on NG. This site gave me the inspiration and the kick in the ass I needed to start learning everything I now know about programming, because it was always a personal dream of mine to work on developing games.
As someone who would like to consider himself "in the know" of today's indie generation, I have to say that Newgrounds is a place like no other. Originators reign supreme, and that's what Newgrounds is, an originator. There's no other place on the internet with such an immense summation of pure creativity and talent, such a plethora of personalities, and such a fiery attitude to push the limits of indie creations. This site has made such a name for itself that even those who may have only heard of it a few times remember pieces of NG history. Newgrounds doesn't need any investments to become "amazing" because this is a relative term, "amazing" compared to what? We're the best, always have been, and always will be.
Taking the money of big investors just to make a name for a place that is already incredible is so counterintuitive due to the whims of said investors. Newgrounds may not be immortal now, but its what we have and love, and a move to venture capitalism will most definitely kill that which we all love about Newgrounds, and in doing so, kill Newgrounds itself.
I rest my case.
