Your argument about why people wouldn't buy new books just doesn't make sense, mate. And you didn't say "that's a dumb stereotype", you said "that's a broad generalization". If you'd said young people liking new things was just a "dumb stereotype" I'd have been laughing too hard to type.I've pretty much already written (repeatedly) why I disagree with all of this... but it is hilarious to me that earlier you wrote "I think 20/30 year olds are like this," then I wrote "I'm in my 20s and that's a dumb stereotype" and you replied with "Just because your 20 you can't prove I'm wrong."
Like lol, ok. And somehow my opinion that releasing a new edition on an anniversary being dumb (because pinning a new rules release on an arbitrary date is indeed, very dumb), somehow means I don't think people will buy books from a new edition ever (or ever have)... like ok, keep arguing against whoever it is you imagine I am, 'cause I'm not interested.
Like I said though, you could be right about it not happening in 2024, that's the weakest part of the assumptions.
