I used to subscribe to SI, but gave it up last year. I would always subscribe when a kid would ask as a fundraiser for their school. I last did a 1-year subscription in mid-2005. Then around October of last year I get notices from some 2-bit collection agency saying I owe $60 for another SI subscription. Through some investigating I found that SI took it upon themselves to make me a "Preferred Subscriber" (no choice of my own).
"Prefered Subscriber" means what? It means one thing... they automatically re-new your subscription for another year when it runs out! Can you believe that crap?!? I'll re-new it on my own if I desire it. I have not heard from their two-bit collection people for a couple of months. They will not get a dime from me, nor will I ever subscribe to their rag again.
Take heed... be very-very careful of any Time Inc. magazine. They are known for this crap and will attempt to scare money out of you and volunteer you to pay them your money w/out your consent.
