The thing is, people are stupid, and blindly start things without prior knowledge* or checking out the competition first. That is the human condition.

Why else do we see more sysops running retro BBSes than users dialing in to said retro BBSes? Why do people start Amiga forums as though the current ones were crowded?

Publishing is a game of perseverance. Making the first issue is the funny bit because you can spend a year doing it. Thereafter, you have deadlines and readers to deal with.

* I've worked for many years in publishing, as well as having worked on an Amiga fanzine. If the Amiga User crew are more experienced, they really must know what they're doing. As can be discerned from their marketing blitz over here.
