with all due respect, this thread exists in a section of the forum that not only is designed specifically for this type of subject, but also happens to be near the very bottom of the home page... for you to be here you had to have actually found it from effort (not something you just stumbled across in the rifle section for example)... the "redundant complaints" are at least relevant and therefore are much less "board clog" than the post I am responding to.
As for adding $5 to the purchase price, that makes as much sense as CA calling "tax" a "fee"... renaming it doesn't explain it, or justify it - and driving the price up for profit is Turners prerogative, but if you are trying to attract customers that's a bass-ackwards way of doing it.
