Not to defend his actions but if QST had continued to feature technical articles it would have lost readership and advertisers.  At least QSX gives the technically astute community a place to interact. The current licensing requirements and the resultant less technical ham community do not have the interest in technical issues that hams did several decades ago - fact of life - unfortunately.

  Another piece of major damage to amateur radio that has been credited to 
Rinaldo was taking in-depth technical articles out of QST and having them 
published in a separate publication, QEX, that full members must now pay 
extra to receive, leaving QST to be filled mostly with "human interest" 
drivel, ads and stale news.
