No, it's not that hard, but it's still easier to not have to coordinate with someone else's schedule. Look, people have their
reasons for not wanting to meet others in person, some may be good ones, some may not. Why can't someone set their terms of sale
without having the name-calling begin? C'mon, give us misanthropes a break!
