Yeah, sounds like a great idea.  But after the advertisers start dropping
off one by one, and the subscription escalates to something that would
make Bill Gates cry, the mag would die of its own weight.  I abhor
advertising also... especially when it's in my way.  But the price the
advertisers pay, which ends up reducing our subscription rates, would seem
to be worth it.  There *IS* something you can do, you know:  if the
advertisement peeve outweighs the value of the magazine, send a
message - - - cancel your subscription.
