I got an email over the weekend from the subscription service. The guy I've been dealing with there apologized for the delay in getting back, said he'd been on vacation (!) He said he'd forward my inquiry to Customer Service for a 'status report' cautioning this could take several days. I forwarded that and all the emails from these people to Linn's. About ten minutes later I got a terse reply that they'd contact this third party and ask them to process a cancellation on the subscription I'd accidentally booked through them. Let's hope they do not screw this up further by cancelling the subscription I currently have.
This is not about Linn's bashing. They are indeed a valuable resource to our hobby and I wish them to prosper and live long. That however does not mean we have to eat dirt. They need to be called out when they do bone headed things like this.
