Is this magazine being rather economical, deceptive, smart or ... ???

Last month when I received my bi-monthly "Taste of Home" magazine in the mail an enclosed letter explained that as this issue was thicker than normal it would count as two magazines. I subscribe to nine magazines and have done so for years and this is the first I've heard of this. Some "Food and Wine" issues are far thicker than others, for example. ToH isn't exactly a favourite magazine of mine, either. I am patiently waiting for it to run out - someone kindly renewed it for me for four years! Not that it is a terrible magazine, it is just so darned basic! (Another topic.)

To those of you who receive this magazine what did you think of the letter? And to those who do not, what is your view? My initial reaction was surprise followed by slight disgust. I can see them trying to save money but what the heck? Not that it truly matters (especially since I don't exactly love the magazine, anyway) but it is those little things that can be annoying! ;-)
