I have learned a ton from magazines over the years and yes I have cut back on purchasing them, the main reason is the web and storage issues; I also think that the articles that are being published these days are light years ahead of anything from when I started in this great hobby of ours, as well as the model kits!
As a personal note; it sounds like you are an angry person and we all have the right to be this way but to be honest it makes you look bad, and that you just might have a hidden agenda.
And as far as Ego stroking, well we all need that at times and like having it done and we all need our 15 minutes of fame! Hell I for one like being stroked! so what's you point?
Our hobby is the best that it's ever been with all the magazines and new Manufactures and after market; but it's also in bind at the present time due to a slow economy and will take some time to get back to its pinnacle.
Magazines are having a rough time making it these days and need all the help that they can get, think about it! How many modelers that you know of; can build, paint, weather, photograph and write an article? Not many, so I give credit to the publishers and modelers for doing the fine work that they are doing and have done.
Ron please don't take this as a personal attack, because it's not, I think that you need to step back and read what you have posted!
Have a better day!
