I've always found Aaron to be an astute businessman.

Given how difficult the rest of the world's newspapers and magazines are finding it to make money from their publications at the moment, I wonder if the underlying reason for this announcement is that the financial return on the time and effort has become minimal.

The stated reason does not make sense to me. I can't imagine that those alleged to be "attacking" subscribe to the CD, so how would pulling the plug on it be an appropriate response ?

I've suscribed to the CD in the past and thought it well produced - With subscriptions to 'Qercus', 'Archive' and 'RISCOS Now' currently on the go, I'd let the 'RISCWorld' one lapse - but I'm wishing I'd supported it more now....
