NO!  Stop it!  I want to go at least a month without thinking about ActiveRain being sold please!!!

Haha kidding aside, I think Ben has a vision for the site, and often times the grandest plans require slow & steady implementation and growth - if Ben is going to bring this platform to it's full potential, it'll be years before the best time to pass along the baton will come.  This site, from a profit standpoint, has huge potential, but requires a lot of work and forward thinking.

 Good Saturday morning Martin. Well, let's not think about selling active rain before the new ownership as time to do something with it.

I think Ben is pretty smart and he bought  the site because  it benefits his plans for his business - and it can still benefit us

Hey, let's give them more than a week or so to get where they want to go.  And, it's his business and investment, so whatever Ben does to make it marketable should also work in our favor.

Who could ever answer that question? There are so many factors to consider.

me think my brain can't think about such things on a friday night. late. with a beer in me. wondering if my points will still be worth something when V. Putin takes over the world , and all we have left is S&H green stamps. and , oh , ya, the beer and the long week negoiating had nothing to do with this. i am more concerned with should i put stone or wood in the new model. i love you guys! (likely the beer speaking)

Money talks but I think Ben has been around for some time and the profit or loss would have to be substantial to put AR on the market again...

I would not separate AR content into two groups one for consumers and the another side for professional realtors . I think AR is unique and should bridge consumers and realtors together and not separate them .

I do not believe that is his intent.
