I HAVE NO INTEREST IN DEVOLVING INTO A "WHAT HAS THIS THREAD BECOME" OR "MORALITY OF THRIFTING" WASTE OF TIME
So just save it.
I'm just trying to alert a seemingly very broseph-y new guy to some of the hazards. 90% of us are on the same page; a few are not.
To be quite honest - the big thing I've learned over the years of being parts of various forums for goods - getting a reputation is worth more than some cash early on. So I would rather be a bit generous now, and have people see I am not some tool than just come out the gates trying to make every penny I can.
Now, that's not to say I have some objection to making some extra money, I am just getting into this all myself and have an all-but-empty wardrobe, so the cash will help, and hopefully will come later.
