Simmer down Bob.
Point 1: Ken blessed us with his cliff notes within 10 mins of the article....only to have his post deleted. The joke was, "well if Bob just would have read Ken's review then he wouldn't have been hoodwinked....'oh wait' Kens negative summary was deleted"
Point 2: I am sure you are well able to forecast whether you will be better off buying the few articles you're likely to be interested in separately or dropping $25 all at once...and the horror if you end up wanting to see 7-8 articles in a year. The joke was "Then again, I could be wrong (with your interest in photographing wildlife), if it is time to buy a new lens (wouldn't be cheap right?), then examples of how to get the most mileage outta each $5 or $10 bill might be highly welcomed.
For what its worth, I was gonna right..."whenever Bob wants to read an article he just logs in under gross bob"
