We are upset that CS has become a for-profit corporation



We are here to show our disagreement with CS turning into a B-corp: http://www.couchsurfing.org/news/article/144 and support any initiative to get CouchSurfing strategic team establishing actions to move back to non-profit organization.

We had wonderful experiences with Couch Surfing, we absolutely LOVE CS and there will never be enough thanks to everyone: volunteers, CS employees, every member who worked on the idea during years and years.
CS was born as a community, built and strengthened by many volunteers spirited members and now turned into a corporation.

Joining that group means that you are supporting this initiative!

We want the source code written until now by volunteers and the database to be released!
