Sorry for those not in the know, as it will clearly be deleted soon anyhow.
So will copy/paste direct from last comment.
Peace to you all...
Yeah, I'd love it if I could buy all locally - say within 10-15 miles of the house. But sometimes what I need is just not available, so got to shop elsewhere. I used to go into the HF store in Raleigh, but that is far enough away I would pay more for gas than for shipping. Still buy a fair amount of books, but all used, all on-line, partly because they are not available anywhere near me, and partly because you get a used book, in nice condition, and it cost little to ship - go to a new book store, price the same book, and it could cost 5 or 6 times what I pay for on-line purchase.
You are reiterating my exact thoughts.
The title of this initial thread, is more misleading than what I should have started a new thread on.
If I offended (which CLEARLY I have) it was not entirely my intention. Other than a quick laugh (apparently at my expense.)
I will say, I am done with the topic. And have said most of what I wanted to, without offending (OTHERS).
So best I leave this one alone.
I am seeing the 2 easy sides to see to the forum, and QUICK. As my WHOLE thread on sexism that I copied and pasted FROM POULAR SCIENCE. Is gone. Yet, the only thing I added was, what OTHER HERE (including offended peoples) HAD posted in a joke thread....!!! I must assume I will not be tolerated here. Sorry to be offensive TO all in question.
You can just erase ALL my posts please, as I see no reason to stay where I am censored. FOR NO REASON, other than personal views.
