Here are some comments I'm reading elsewhere:

1. The story was released too early, hence it being quickly removed.

2. Hack job.

3. Bad office joke taken seriously.

Well you probably saw the offical Active Rain announcement by now.  How great is this!

I'm pleased with Ben's approach that this won't be a single franchise blogging platform. I'm actually stoked that Bob Stewart is coming back! That's awesome. I love that the domain switch and last but not least..... glad to see Zillow & Market Leader being 86'd. I hope Kerrie remains a part.

I also hope that Kerrie is a part of this too!! Read this, and we will see how it changes . .

It certainly seems to be true. The blog roll is rumbling about it.

Terrific news for real bloggers.  I depend on ActiveRain for a good portion of my business and Zillow was just killing us all.
