As for speaking one's mind I have never had a problem with that so I wouldn't know.
I certainly can't and won't prevent anyone from quoting what he wants- Thats his god given right. No argument.
But I also have the right to let them know what I and many and I dare say most folks think.
Never said you have a problem with speaking your mind- you actually are in this case. That makes me see the other side of the coin whether I agree with it or no.
If something is over-priced, as you suggested, I don't buy it... I never do. In any case I'm a bit of a stingy bloke
Oh come on buddy, I don't claim to be the voice of the unheard or the protector of the innocent and gullible. On the other hand, let me put it blandly- it's to do with selfishness. Hell, I'm not going to sit around mutely and watch the market that my passion feeds on go to bollocks. When my children come of age I hope they'll be able to afford something. Certainly I hope many feel the same too...
In a country where one can barely...just about own a gun(For most people) one can do with lesser obstacles.
***The anonymity of the web gives a lot of ignorant people license to make an ass of themselves too.As for repressed minds being given a chance to express themselves, we should have a "Whine and cheese" section for it
The assumption is I am making an ass of myself. No contest there mate. I am one by nature. The Mods are there and free to shut the ignorant ass if they deem fit. I'll carry on being my ass self.
"Whine & Cheese" go very well with dog meat
There you go again.Give the others some credit for having a mind of their own.Instead of "Caveat Emptor" here it is "Caveat venditor"
No credit for rapacity. Wasn't questioning or dwelling about peoples ability to think.
The Latin adds class to the conversation though
Yes certainly Caveat Venditor too!!
If you deem it your place in life to defend high prices, no probs mate...again thats your right
Anyway, since we're most unlikely to be agreeing on this issue any time... lets just let it go. It cheapens the site to have regular one-ups.
As long as things don't get out of hand, I continue to think prices should be commented upon.
