It has been suggested I create a place specifically inviting your questions. AND specifically inviting you all to post your best effort at answers, too! Discussion forums take practice.
Have you noticed Ning doesn't send all responses out as emails, but that Google Groups does?
This is an optional setting, and since many forget to check Forums regularly, there is a certain utility - up until the volume becomes overwhelming or unmanageable.

As much as I don't like it, I think it is important IF we want to stay ACTIVE to have the notifications for the chosen discussion site be automatically set to email us. I have found with this class that I am doing a better job of "checking in", however, because there are so many different discussions sites currently available to this class, I find it hard to keep "in the loop" on all of them. I haven't used a Ning before, but I like the feel of this. The jury is still out for me...
Landing on one discussion site is important for me, but again, I can appreciate the need to give us a feel for the variety that exists.
