When I have the time, I like to look around to see what things - good or bad - people are saying about Linux Format. Today I came across a forum thread about Linux magazines, where a number of folks were praising LXF (yay!) and at the same time annoyed that we hadn't posted a review of 11.3 and also complaining that it was too expensive (boo!), so I decided to reply to their messages.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, one of the admins contacted me to say they were embarrassed by what I had written, because it "basically constitutes spam", and my post was deleted. I don't have the patience to deal with that kind of community, so rather than argue my case I'm just reposting my message here so that anyone who wants to read it can. Believe it or not, I really do want people to pay as little for LXF as they can!
