I was one of the earliest to introduce the magazine to the forum. I also did several proxy to some members here. The price of the magazine was around $7 but the shipping in many instance was $18 to $35. I tried several couriers, all airmail. This did not include the cost of packaging and labor (going to post, wrapping and prep). I quoted $20 unknowingly and stuck to my guns, honored the price and got to know a few friends as well as assholes.
Those who were recipients of proxy services and paid $25 or lesser should be grateful instead of bitching about the price. One, whom, shall not mention, even complained that he did not receive it within 3 days. Ultimately, I decided it wasn't worth the while and mentioned it here to warn other members who were kind enough to do proxies.
I only take the magazines along with me and physically pass it to those gracious few when I travel to London, NY and Vegas. It's a thankless job and I will not extend this anymore.
