    I got my Turf magazine in the mail today and noticed that 'In Your Own Words' wasn't in the issue. What's up with that? Are we too boring for Turf??

    Maybe they're thinking all of us are sitting on some warm, sunny beach someplace not worrying about work or reading "Turf". Yeah, hello...

    Maybe we could all get together and cancel our subscriptions!!!!
    Oh yeah that's right,they're free. Maybe we could demand that they pay us to receive the magazine until they put back 'In Your Own Words'. If it wasn't for this section of the mag I would've never found out about lawnsite!!!!

    Now lets not jump in and crucify them without knowing the details. The issue said EXTRA so mayby it just for this issue.

    that section wouldn't be too bad if they didn't EDIT some of the replies.

    From the looks of it, they went back to their old style covering golf courses. Also, they probably received negative comments regarding that section from subscribers as well as advertisers. Maybe if they chose better threads to have put in there it would have been different, but the mower down the stairs thread? C'mon....that portrays us as....???

    I have to agree with Scraper, that was a bad choice of threads to publish. There are plenty of much better, and educational ones here. I'm just happy I finally got published in the last issue, before the series stopped ;) The only thing is they edited the funny part of my post, which was entertaining & probably would have helped to boost those free subscriptions! Oh well.
