I will respectfully disagree here with you Dan. The worst in human 
behaviour is when a human believes that s/he deserves special treatment 
above and beyond the great unwashed masses, as his/her right. It is a 
courtesy that LUGgers offer their items for sale here first, it shouldn't 
be expected of them.

eBay is the closest thing that the world has seen to real free market 
capitalism since Adam Smith. This free market represents the best in human 
behaviour...a global marketplace in which all you need to play is an email 
address and access. A non-tarrifed, peaceful community for the exchange of 
goods and services which polices itself.

The best part about eBay as a free market is no one is forcing you to use 
it to buy or sell all Just systems, it is completely
