   No offense, but that drives me nuts.

   What's happening on eBay, because way too many buyers take your
stance, is that professional and especially "semi-pro" sellers try to
charge as little as possible for S&H, and then can't afford to pack the
item correctly. That costs you a lot more than the $5.60USD you're
worried about.

   If I sell you an item, I have to find (and usually pay for) a box
that fits it for secure shipping, packing, tape, and labelling, and if
it's shipped USPS, I also have to either weigh it here and print a label
online, or schlep it down to the PO and wait in line to have them do that.

   If all that's not worth $5-6 for a small item or $10-15 for a
PC-sized item, a prospective buyer is welcome to kiss my butt and go
