It is that the paying groups are subsidizing the free basic ones.
What you are missing is how Mark views the different plans:
* Free groups are his marketing tools;
* Premium groups pay the rent;
* Enterprise groups provide the profit;

He's got a couple of Enterprise customers, who are very happy with his
services. Those are the customers that might be subsidizing the rest of
the groups.

In running a cost/feature comparison between Groups.IO, and his major
competitors, it looks like the Enterprise customers are the ones who are
being subsidized.

Hint: Neither FaceBook nor YahooGroups are his competitors.
