Can you name names? Specifically the publically traded one ?

I can, but I wont.

I'm sure you could guess at it if you had to, its all publicly available information.

Here's my guess: Synacor. Took me only a few minutes of googling.

Can we refrain from punishing people for sharing their insights, especially when they explicitly opt to not share those details?

You're right. I tried to remove it, but I can't edit the comment anymore.

publically traded != startup (in my opinion)

I inferred that the parent comment meant he/she worked for a startup, that became successful and is now a publicly traded company.
