I agree

but does it matter to us sailors - as a hack it matters to me - but as a sailor I don't think I will miss out on any information

as Jonesey says.. there are lots of bloggers around and you soon learn about which ones are worth reading and which ones are worth ignoring.

There are loads of old great sailing books around and they are easy to find on ebay - pretty soon they will be available for freemans as downloads as well.

I agree.... it is too late.... the horse has bolted
