You forgot to mention in your response, above, regarding
research matters within magazines, that, "In my opinion so-
called research does not always stand up to scrutiny".

The question was not about prices, but about how you made FSR
sound like a joke, then within 3 months you ask everyone to
start placing subscriptions to it? I don't think I am the only
person on this list "In my opinion" who has also noted your
strange U-turn on FSR?

The crux of the matter is, you were asked a very straight
forward question:

"How did the change in your position come about on the relative
importance of these publications?"

To which you have answered with postage prices for FSR CD Roms?
