"if you have no interest in the gear then STOP REPLYING TO THIS THREAD <--APPLYS TO ALL"
Think of us as a sort of "tribe", Mike. Even tho the tribal "elders" may not be interested in the "meat" you're trying to hawk (in OUR "territory" to OUR tribal members), they still have a "duty" to look out for all the tribal members here and question and "grill" each "trader" that wants to try and sell his "wares" to the "tribe". Hope that helps...
Caution: some here have collected many "scalps"! We don't take well to those that "speak with forked tongue"!
That said, once your "trial by fire" has passed, I'm sure you'd find us to be a "fun" tribe....
