Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

Oh, I agree 100%. I reckon a reasonable facsimile of the truth might come out in a lawsuit should one go forward (and there are some intimations towards such a possibility). Probably wouldn't see the light of day though. I've seen enough lawsuits settle precisely because of the reputation hit certain evidence being on the record would entail.

It is sad to see it happen, but it is good to see another side to the story.

Well, there are three sides to every story: mine, yours, and the truth. Don't know that the real truth will ever come out. Again, sad to see it happen.

Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

Wow, that site (along with the email chains to back up the claims) really does cast the whole drama in a new light.

I'm always suspicious when only one side of the story is spread via social media (let's face it, there was a lot of that in the wake of the L&A closure), this additional info shows that instinct to have merit

Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

I hate to see it gone. It was one of the few sailing magazines that I'd pick up and read, for many of the same reasons that have been listed. I can't post the link, but there is a website called The Inglorious Demise of Latitudes and Attitudes that seems to be Doran's side of the story.

Well the magazine was started by Bob Bitchin, aka Robert Lipkin. The magazine was bought out by "sextant publishing" headed by a DJ Doran.

a .1 second Google search resulted in the following, the last link has lots of good info on upset customers and investors:

Re: Latts & Atts is GONE!

Oh. I guess I've not seen said "insult". And no way in hell I'm digging around for it.

As for L&A - you gotta do your homework, man.

Later.
