Cheers John and Peter.

[USER=542]@Peter[/USER] – I attend a couple of startup forums here in Perth and they (guest speakers, VC’s etc.) always make passing comments that a WordPress site is not something you can build on/grow etc. I think WordPress is shunned in the startup community but then again these people are building a product as such and not a member base like I am.
I think it’s general ignorance of what a platform like WordPress can do. Many startups, particularly tech, are building apps or custom sites that do certain things. For those providing a service, setting up ecommerce or setting up a community, I think it’s a great platform and very scalable (perhaps to a point).
