    I see you guys have been busy while I was out of the office! LOL...

    Thank you to those defending Turf magazine. Our ratio's are consistent with all other controlled circ publications as required by the USPS. I believe it's 60% advertising to 40% editorial. There are no exceptions if you are mailing 2nd class.

    I think debate and competition is healthy for any business, so keep up the fire guys! :usflag::usflag:

    You know he's serious, right? MooseRiverPublishing, which puts out TurfMag and others, bought Lawnsite.com from Sean sometime back.

    Well throw the thing out then. Jeez

    I have never seen so many threads come up whining about a free magazine.

    They dont say anything that theyre not.

    They dont advertise as being the "landscaping bible" information filled reference book.

    They are an advertising magazine, with a couple of interesting articles thrown in there.

    I like it, I flip through it. Sometimes I toss it after 30 seconds other times I read the whole thing.
