I want to say that I have been a member of airbnb for a couple of years now. From hosts and guests, I have heard a number of times that it has allowed for people to pay bills and to travel to see family and friends affordably. Airbnb is an integral part of the shared economy and I believe not having it would affect negatively the communities and economies currently developing. Thank you.
