I never said it would be cheap. But paying extra (even if it is double) will
be a good investment when it prevents your customers from going somewhere
else. Better to lose a few dollars now and make it up later then keep a few
dollars now and lose it all later. Glad to be of help and promote
competition and free enterprise. Actually the more competition there is the
better it is for me so there are some selfish motives involved.
