I agree with you, but the RULE network is not enclosing CDs to
magazines. If a magazine wants to do it, it's welcome, of course.

The RULE network means:

Buying a virgin CD, burning RULE on it and mailing within my state
costs, say, 5 dollars. IF you want one, send me a check for five
dollars and your address.

NO burning and shipping as many CDs as magazine copies. An on demand
thing, with all the expenses on the receiver, *plus* the opportunity
for the magazine to look good and add in the envelope a subscription
invitation, one issue for half price, something like this.
