Maybe customers will simply purchase from one of the supporting vendors, instead of taking the information to the cheapest place they can find online...
...naw, that's not going to happen.
I find it very interesting the fact that you refer to the members of this forum as customers. I'm am not a customer, I am an enthusiast, not to mention a supporting member, as is TAGXT04 for that matter. That is why I frequent this site in the first place.
Now while I understand your position to look out for the better interests of this site, I have to say that I don't care for guilt trips for looking for a good solution or price for a proprietary part that has
to be replaced periodically.
I would be more then happy to use a supporting vendor for my replacement parts, but I must say that I take issue that I can't seem to find a vendor that will disclose their prices for parts, (i.e. replacement blades) on this site without filling out a bunch of personal information. I don't like filling out my personal information on line any more then I have to, and I don't want to get extra marketing emails from multiple vendors just because I want to shop for a reasonable price.
For those who are looking for some links as to where you can get a price before filling out all your info, be they vendors or not, I've found these sites have fairly reasonable prices.
