I disagree.

23andMe may have the largest autosomal database, today, but it does a
genealogist no good when the people in that database have no interest in
genealogy and do not reply to requests for contact.

The people who subscribe to FTDNA's Family Finder ARE genealogists.
They are subscribing to find matches. Within a very short time, the
FTDNA autosomal database will match or exceed that of 23andMe, and the
people in the FTDNA autosomal database will respond.
