I'd really like something that did no gear reviews and talked about both photography techniques, photographic history and the stuff no one ever talks about like looking after your tripod - I know, not exactly money spinners

I agree. Amateur Photographer used to be like that. It relied much less on advertising for new equipment than it does now because it made enough money from the adverts for used equipment which took up almost half of the pages of the magazine. I suppose that changed when the used market evaporated overnight, thanks to digital.

All the magazines including Amateur Photographer are now trying to please their advertisers by pushing people towards buying new equipment. Discussion of photo techniques, history and accessories are what forums are for.
