He has absolutely no need any more for the pittance of subscriptions here, with the ton of money he's made from the History channel, so we're all just an afterthought. So unless you make a big and provocative complaint which he will respond to with scathing and ridiculing and demeaning rants, you will be completely ignored.
Just keep sending any money you think will help him to now continue to live his upgraded lifestyle, I guess.

OK Seagull, you got MY attention. How should I respond? In kind? I will try not to start out that way. Guamdre, you started this thread, but you are considerably more respectful, however, using the word "scam" was a bit over the top. If you have an issue with Legendary Times Magazine, please contact their office and resolve it with them before you resort to defamation on this board. It is likely that Giorgio wouldn't see this anyway.
Look, Giorgio is just like lots of folks I know. Likes life, enjoys success, does his best to keep up with all of the projects he starts. He is enthusiastic about the research and has just managed to pull off 3 seasons of documentaries shown worldwide. Thanks to that, he is ALWAYS overwhelmed with work. He is editing the next issue as we speak. I know that because I made a phone call to his assistant, just so I could know the facts, before I answer your posts.
-If you have joined the AASRA for a year's membership, expect 4 issues of the Legendary Times. If it was 2 years, then it would be 8. THE "YEAR" IS A GUIDELINE for how many issues you will receive before it is time to renew your membership. It is incorrectly listed as yearly time frames on the LT website.
-The last few years of Legendary Times magazinge have turned out to be both larger than intended and came out approximately yearly. So if you paid for a yearly membership, expect your membership period to last accordingly.
-Your membership will NOT lapse until you have received at least those number of issues.
-Nobody is currently sending out renewal notices for membership. You may be surprised to find (as I did this last year) that the LT journal will still appear in your mailbox well after the afore-mentioned time frame and membership has lapsed.
-If you write about AAT topics, then you should submit your articles for publication because there cannot be a magazine without articles.
-Any money Giorgio has made from the History Channel is between him and them. Note that Legendary Times or AASRA are NOT being hawked on Ancient Aliens. Memberships pay for the Journal.
Now with all of that said, I want to point out that I am a volunteer. Not because I expect to end up with a paying position, but because I believe in the effort. I am my own person and not some fanboy that will piss his pants if Giorgio were to speak harshly with me. If I had something to say to him, I would get the message across to HIM. Sure, I voice my opinions on this forum just like the rest of you, but if I have a criticism of him professionally, I say it to HIM.
Next, I checked the link you gave and I remember the thread. Damn right Aidenkai backed off. He was in the wrong. I think you should back off as well seagull. Along with anyone else that wants to beef publicly. The phone and fax number of Legendary Times is clearly listed on the site. Leave a message if you have to but be civil or you may get ignored. Interesting that you took that particular monniker. Seagulls are scavengers, they look for weaknesses and take what they can, bleep, and then fly away. There is a reason why this board is still in existence, we don't put up with that stuff. Please try to be nicer!
