As I said, I do delete some topics, but I haven't found it necessary to
berate the writers or readers of those topics. They have their place. I'm
just not real interested.
I'm not usually interested in every article in a given magazine. But my
flipping by several without reading them doesn't make the magazine a waste
of time or money. I sometimes buy a magazine for the one article which
interests me and if I read 2 or 3 that's a plus. Same here. If I read
nothing I probably wouldn't susbscribe again.
