I haven't got an issue since the first one due to the stink with Tarik and the neo customer database (that, and some of the writing just plain made no sense).

How bad was it?

I still say bring back Anime Insider, it was the best IMO. I used to buy Anime Insider and Newtype USA at Borders.

But any UK mag is like reading a time warp anyway in terms of releases (behind the USA) and news, its stupid to think people would ever read a print mag for that.

Neo subscribers received sample issues of MyM out of the blue.
The guy who publishes MyM used to work for Uncooked Media (Neo's publisher).
Uncooked made the following statement: http://www.neomag.co.uk/​forum/​showthread.​php?​t=​8827

As someone who has supported Neo since day one (although I subscribe via a local store rather than directly so wasn't affected by the "leak") it left a bad taste.

--edit--

With regards to the writing, I remember a panel on the first page that made my inner grammar nazi rage. IIRC it included something about blowing a "frugal horn".

A frugal horn sounds like a double entendre. Razz
