Received from Cheryl Boyle:
I'm writing to tell you that SAILjazz is modifying the subscription plan.
Based on the responses we received, we're electing to dramatically reduce
the editorial content
on the site. There is no point in delivering a
product that people do not want. In turn, we are also reducing the annual
subscription to $12
. This will cover the remaining site resources as well
as fund the lists. Everyone can subscribe either annually at $12 or
Quarterly at $4.
The reduction in Editorial removes a substantial cost from the equation. We
intend to focus future development on improving the lists to deliver the
we can. While we know that free services can provide an
alternative, we also see the desire of many to have a service based on high
standards and active management. Our list are governed by a set of rules
that prohibit spam, flame wars, obnoxious posters and other nuisances
commonly found on the internet
We fully appreciate that you may be quite happy with an alternate list/site
that you've joined. If so, please accept our sincere best wishes. If
you're not satisfied, or if you change your mind in the future, then know
that SAILjazz will be there.
For those who did subscribe under the original offer, do not worry, we have
not charged your credit card. We will wait 5 days and then process a
subscription for you at the new price
of $12 per year or $4 for the Quarter
(based on whatever you selected). If you would prefer not to do this then
please let us know by this coming Sunday.
For those who did not subscribe, we welcome your participation as a
subscriber. Non-subscribing accounts will be removed from the lists over
the next few days as we modify the site to accommodate this change.
Thanks again for your past support.
