As I wrote, I’ve come across “too many” of these threads over the years, and that was my turn to vent on the internet. I own up to the “irony”.

‘No they are in the business of making a profit while providing a service to the people and, if their service cost is to high then people go elsewhere. If like me and there is not much competition in your country you turn to purchase from the internet.’

I was commenting on the perceived attitude that any business is somehow obligated to bargain with any potential customer, offering them a “fair” discount, even if the seller does not need to. One of my points was, if any individual doesn’t like the pricing policies of any given manufacturer or retailer they can shop elsewhere, rather than become seemingly indignant at not being offered a “deal”.

As I was just expressing my personal opinions.

I’m talking about what’s been written on the screen: people don’t like the pricing policies of numerous retailers, and they don’t like tax policies that add to the cost of certain gear.

‘Yes there are overheads and some people just don't seem to understand that, but coming across they way you have is not going to enlighten anyone.’

I’m not here to “enlighten” anyone -- are you here to “defend” everyone?
Defend everyone? Nope, only when i'm offended.
I just didn't like the way your post mentioned things about other countries "tax polices" and "social services" and i pulled you on it, nothing to lose sleep about.
You said "I was just expressing my personal opinions."
Remember ones Personal opinions don't always equal fact.

Thats my lot,
