So you've said multiple times in this thread. At this point, it's becoming threadcrapping - move on.

That said, I'll note that most of the 3rd edition books slated for upcoming release are genre and setting books for which there's no 4e equivalent: Transhuman Space, Middle Ages, Celtic Myth, Atomic Horror, and so on. 3rd edition Basic and Compendium I are the necessary rules foundation to make sense of other 3rd edition books. I think this is less about people continuing to play 3rd edition and more about making 3rd edition setting and genre books easier to use without having to rewrite them.
Exactly!

But back to Topic: Any plans for a POD release of Compendium II, Magic and Martial Arts?

You can see the books they've got slated for POD release here; scroll down to where it says "Releasing Through 2018." The slated books are notably devoid in rules-heavy texts like that, so I'm guessing the answer is the usual ambiguous "We have not announced any plans to do that."

Right, you know how some people like what they know and may not feel like they have time or money to learn all new books and moderately new rules? And paper books only last so long with active play?

My old group played GURPS pretty regular from 1998-2010 without touching 4e, (other than the "optional rules" I tried out on them during the 4e super black Cosmic NATO secret playtest) and I had already established in-continuity niches for the otherwise abusable 3Rev rules that were cut in the making of 4e, so I kept using the old rules with them until I moved off to grad school.

Is there perhaps some way I can address their assertion without addressing them personally?

You could, just spitballing here, not address them personally.

Hmmm. Does that make sense? Bringing back 3e Basic set and Companion I but Companion II not? It feels a little incomplete to me...

It would be better to talk in generalities without quoting someone who has been asked to drop the subject. Or, better still, let the conversation go.
