Time is running out to receive a free copy of the latest HDTVinsider Newsletter Issue 14 on DVI and copy protection. The next issue will be out soon and when it is published Issue 14 will no longer be available. Go to www.hdtvinsider.com to subscribe.

Just a few more days before Issue 14 is history. Subscribe now while you can still get it.

Issue 15 is being written. If you want to learn about DirecTV's and Echostar's plans for currnet HDTV owners, you must subscribe now. Once issue 15 is published, you will not be able to get this issue (14).

While it's certainly on-topic, does this kind of message violate any of this forums non-advertisement rules?


I kind of feel like I got suckered into an advertisement, what with the topic subject and all. While it's nice for subscribers to know that an issue's going to be going away, couldn't have the subject been a little less misleading -- by, I don't know, containing something about the newsletter?


That said, I would be interested in signing up and reading the newsletter, as I've generally heard good things about it -- but before I do, would you mind disclosing your privacy policy? Will my personal information given in the application be sold or distributed to others?

Chris,


I am letting the forum members know that HDTV Insider Issue 14 is about to be removed. I do not have advertising on my website, nor within the (free) newsletter. I give my newsletter subscribers an option to "opt in" on the website when they subscribe for possible future "HDTV related"

ads (sorry no pyramid schemes,identity secrets, viagra, herbal remedies, weight loss, stock tips or adult site promos etc. allowed) though no readers have received any "opted in" advertisements to date.


BTW, I have answered this before in previous posts if you would like to do a search.

Sounds good, I'll be signing up shortly.


My only suggestion is to perhaps create more informative subjects so as to not give the appearance of trying to "sucker" people into threads.

I for one knew as soon as I saw Gary's name beside a topic that said Important Announcement exactly what it would be about. I've come to expect them as a reminder each month. From what I have seen in the past, if it is about something other than the newsletter Gary makes the topic more dsescriptive.

Gary, just curious, is there a reason that you do not provide an archive of your newsletters? You could do a "fax back" via e-mail type of interface. I just signed up this past month and would think that access to your previous letters would be of value to the online HD community.

Thanks for your efforts.

Hi Gary,


I've tried to subscribe a couple of times and have gotten nothing yet. I was wondering if your server was down.

I'll try again tonight.

The same thing happened to me about a week ago.I finally received my copy of the newsletter after my third attempt.

Gary did mention that he was having server problems.
