Oh come on Tony this is unfair

Andrew's been paying out about $15000 a year on this enterprise, why should he go on doing it? it's unreasonable to expect him to.

If all the people who regret its passing had said let's double the price and while we're at it we'll all solicit, or give away, a couple of subs for people we used to lend it to, maybe it would have been a more viable proposition with a subscriber base more attractive to advertisers. Admittedly neither Andrew nor I worked hard at drumming up subscribers but there's a limit to the effort it's worth putting in.

given that he's invested a lot of his own money into something you enjoyed even if it was for only a few years, it could equally be argued that he still deserves your support
