Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star BlacknGold, succinctly summed up the bear case for our community:

Carbonite is worth $15 million on paper and $250+ million on the market. Talk about overvalued. There is no moat in data backup technology. Why would people pay to have a company back up their files when they can keep all of their information secure and private by buying an external hard drive?
