    I got a PM from "Rudy" whose avatar says he is an admin. I am not familiar with him, although it isn't like I know every mod/admin on ADV. Anyway, the PM says site supporters will receive a magazine and I was to click a link to provide my shipping address. Similar to when we got the T-Shirts.

    Anyway, I didn't see anywhere on the site anything about the magazine, so I figured I would ask here before I clicked anything.

    Is this legit?

    I declined the offer. :D

    No offense to Rudy or Baldy or any other Mods or supporters, but I've got less than zero time for additional reading material. It'd just be put into one of several bookcases, gather dust for a decade or so, and eventually sent off to Half-Price Books or something.

    They've been talking about this for months and Rudy for years. You guys been under a rock? Or maybe I was scammed by a great hack. Great, now he knows my screen name and where I live. Probably ought to lock up my bikes.

    :stupid

    What 'hed says. @Rudy owns the place and the "book" has been discussed for a while. Order up if you want one.

    The irony of the last US magazine biting the dust this week was not lost on me.

    yea I was going to have Kev setup a special page for us on the site here so it doesn't go off site, still might do that but wanted to get this out the door as we're getting pretty close with this thing. only took a year.

    I received a message from Rudy asking for my email and shipping addresses for a printed journal, is this legitimate or a scam/hack?
