Why did you say six months?
He's coming.
This matters. This is important. Why did you say six months?
Why did you say five minutes?

Intercourse The Penguin: A Critique Of Artificial Scarcity In A Post-Scarcity Economy

If you subscribe to a magazine electronically on Amazon, they will delete your back issues after six months "for your convenience".

Yes, they actually say that.  They delete your property for your convenience.  If you go searching for why your back issues - THAT YOU HAVE PAID FOR - seem to be missing, you find that in the fine print on "How magazine subscriptions work".  A shorter and more accurate explanation would have been "They don't."

And if you think that smacks of doublespeak, don't forget that this is the company that made news by deleting unauthorised copies of 1984 off customer's devices. 

I've sent a complaint to Amazon; it's hard enough to even find how to do that these days.  I was very good and didn't swear...  Much at all.

But, frankly, FUCK DRM in all its forms.

I may expand on this subject once I have calmed down a little.
