Unfortunately, as a friend of mine who used to work in a “boiler room” selling magazines over the phone said, “1 out of 100 people will buy ANYTHING!” Let’s just not be the hundredth person!

Fine Woodworking also charges for many things on their website. You have to subscribe to get access. Cough up that CC number…...

The best way to tell them how you feel is either cancel your subscription or not renew when it is due and let them know that you may return if they go back to the way things were. In the magazine business no subscribers equals no advertizing revenue leading to no magazine…...
