Agreed on most points except #3.

Trade mags make almost nothing from RPG and COBOL
programmers.  They make 99% of their money from advertising.
Subscription is only a small part of their income.

Just look at the content.  How many RPG/COBOL code snippets
or utilities do you see now compared to a couple years ago?
Almost nada (except iSeries Experts Journal, of which I am
biased by also loyal because of the fact they're doing it
old school).
