Letters to the Editor

Since when did all (okay not quite all) of the letters to the editors in writing magazines become commercials? It seems no one is writing in to comment on the articles themselves but to get a little free press. Their writing in to sell or get promotion on something they've wrote ("This article helped me get through writers block while writing my new novel Insert Title Here (Penguin 2009)..." or "After reading the article on freelancing in multiple markets I suddenly realized the potential for my "man about town column" I write for the local paper could have...." I hope the mags are charging advertising rates.

I just thought I'd point that out.
