   Dang it, Sellam, even when you agree with me I don't like it! ;)

   True facts. If it's a bigger-ticket item - over $100 - I can eat a
little loss on S&H. If it's a huge item, it's even simpler. "I will
help load this into whatever truck appears at my garage door." If it's
something I'm selling cheap and not to a list-member or friend, I'm not
about to end up losing money on the sale, or taking half an hour to
gross $12USD.
