RK is not doing this to sell books, nor, frankly, does RK care if people subscribe to hali or not.
RK's intent is to bring some reality and truth into rugdom and that we have done.
Our archive is rich. Have you, for instance, read every post therein?
So, while we realize your admonition is accurate, it is not all encompassing, as that archive has plenty of reading matter -- again most of which is timeless, even auction the reports.
Anyone who writes in here will get an answer, that's a promise.
Those who write with something of value will receive more value in return.
Those who write in with valueless, BS will be rebuked, ridiculed and made to regret doing so.
We hope the former, and not the latter, will be the case, however, we know well the incredibly low level of intellect and resourcefulness most in rugdom thrive on.
RK didn't say we would cease to write, just that we'd write less and less often.
Stimulate us and we'll respond and that's a promise, as well.
Thanks for your interest and kind words, they are appreciated, truly.
You have an "ever-growing audience" and the surest way to stop it growing is to stop posting.
Your comments on auctions and "rugdom" are a delight to read, and if you upset a few people that is their problem.
In the meantime some of your following write to LACMA, do not renew HALI subscriptions and some even buy your books.
If you want more engagement from your readers, there are easy ways to get it.
