You may recall the review of the premier issue of Salvo. I had obtained the issue without charge by sending in a complimentary issue card.
When I notified the publication's editors about the review, I offered to review the second issue, though I pointed out that I wasn't about to plunk down my own hard-earned cash after such an unimpressive first issue.
Last week I got a notice from the Salvo circulation department demanding payment for my subscription to the publication. I never asked to subscribe! This is the second or third such notice I've received.
My evaluation of the magazine was mixed, but my evaluation of its business practices is decidedly sour. What a shame that a group of well-intentioned people who are obviously trying to promote a culture that values people are so thoughtless!
