the welching on the deal for members is the big part and im sure thats what pissed Max off the most....
the gouging aspect is part of life that some people will always fall for.
yes some of us have taken a proactive stance against gouging in our hobby & in particular on this website and at WG.
nothing wrong with people making an honest living or good money.
but when your just outright molesting your fellow builders? thats a totally different story.
theres supply & demand.. & then theres blatant douchery. when that title fits? call it as you see it.
IF everyone grew a set and said NO to this type of thing... it would never be an issue again.
its easy to see who to NEVER EVER deal with or HELP in this hobby & its the people who dont treat you as a fellow builder... but as someone they should plunder and take advantage of.
there are many good vendors out there who have realized that this is the time to establish life long customers by NOT giving them an anal reaming.
say what you mean & mean what you say
