I read all three reviews. Tony's links are by far the best and most thorough. Steve, your interesting and informative article as you call it, comes off more as a small news blurb. An announcement with no real substance.
As for the flaming, Some old timers here remember back to a failed sponsorship of the site. Not all of us like the continual hype of advertising for your magazines and new forum. Ailsa is a shining example of a person who is an editor and a genuinely nice person. When she first came, she offered to the first 100 people who PM'd her, a free copy of her magazine so those who had not seen it could. You have stated before you would lose revenue if you did such an outlandish thing. What works for one might work for others. Ailsa has contributed positively, without hype or advertising. She has joined into the various member organized functions. Her magazine is not a direct sponsor, yet she has supported this site with numerous apuggers being featured. I applaud and commend her as one to put on a pedestle to emmulate.
