In so many ads for used gear, the prospective seller states that the gear is the best he's ever used, and he must reluctantly sell it to finance some important life obligation. Sometimes, even though the gear is spectacular, he's just bored with it. Well, when he comes to his senses, he'll be really sorry that he let me buy it for 97% of what he paid for it new fifteen years ago. Really, I should NOT accept any of this gear, but should be working an extra job so that I can give the additional money to the seller. It would be immoral for me to do otherwise, since I'm sure that he's selling such amazing stuff at such a personal loss in order to finance the medical treatment of a loved one, or something similar. I think that I speak for all of us when I say that we will never again accept a trade. Instead, we will simply give away the items that the other wants to get in a trade, and let him keep his stuff. For we all realize the noble loft of his goals. If he were to trade one bit of his equipment, he would not be able to fulfill the prophesies. = me, crying by the river I feel better now. Thanks for listening.
