re: Practical Sailor has deaf ears
I gave up my 8+ year subscription last year due to a few factors. The main push came from PS's incessant email bombardment for services and crap I didn't want. After fighting to get off their damn lists (and getting no responses) I let my subscription lapse.
Too bad, b/c I did appreciate the magazine. I love the model of subscription-based magazines. I used a number of articles as the basis for research (old journalist here, so never trust one source), but their really crappy circulation & customer service finally pushed me away.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
