George Swann replied to Fabricio Giugni's discussion Ning 2.0 or Ning 3.0 ?

"Just my opinion Graeme, but if you are investing/making that kind of money through your site, I would think you'd want more control and a more professional arrangement. You would do well to have a site that you fully control and can backup your own…"
