I seem to be one of the few non-Progression-subscribers on P&O, and I've
gone over my reasons for that in the past, but since it's come up again:
1. I get more info about prog than I can handle off the 'net already,
2. I rarely ever have time to just sit and do liesure-time reading, so
I probably wouldn't do much more than skim it anyway.
3. I'd rather spend the money on CDs than a magazine about CDs.
4. Just because I'm a prog fan, I have to read the same magazine all
the other prog fans are reading? (That's how I interpret "I can't
understand why anyone in this chat group wouldn't want a subscription").
What, if everyone else buys the new Marillion album, I have to buy it
5. We're a mailing list, not a chat group. That's not a reason why
I don't subscribe to Progression, that's just a bit of anal-retentiveness.
Anyway, I *do* plan on buying the copy with the Cuneiform sampler, either
the next time I get to Record Connection, or at NEARfest, whichever comes
