Thanks for responding. I get it, but it is still frustrating. It's like people getting paid millions of dollars to play sports while Police and Firemen (those who protect us) don't. I get it, if people are willing to pay the money then it's their money. I for one, don't patronize "professional" sports, and, I don't buy things that are priced what is in my opinion too high. Now, having said that, I will confess that I have had to adjust the price I was willing to pay in order to get the item I want. I feel that used items should be somewhere near 50% off but I have learned that on a lot of things 30% off is a great price and I have had to do that, both here and on Hammock Forums. In the end I have been a happy buyer in every case, poorer yes, but happy too.
