Don't get too worked up about it. He goes through some variation of this cycle every year or so. He didn't do it last year, and it screwed up my whole late summer/early fall lawn care schedule, so, personally, I'm glad he's back on the job.
I do not know what you are talking about.
I had a series of posts a couple of years ago where I openly disagreed with writers and editors of Star Trek who were maintaining there was no profitable market for Star Trek technical manuals and similiar publications.
I maintained that they could not know that without actually publishing something.
The reaction I got from many was "My god! He is disagreeing with writers!! People who produce Star Trek material FOR MONEY are here blessing us with their presence, and he has the gall to disagree with them!! Shut him up before the writers get irritated and refuse to post here anymore!!.
