I'm new to the site, just one of the editors on Contracting Business who has started posting since Penton acquired it. I know there seemed to be some fear from some members that Penton was an evil corporation with devious schemes for the site. I really don't think that's the case. I know, at least for my part, that we editors are just hoping to tap into all the knowledge that's here, meets some smart new contractors (and hopefully some smarta** ones, too!), and make ourselves better at covering the industry.
