Don't think that enthusiasts have that much of an influence on mass-marketed brands. Â For them, selling RTW to the average Joe is going to be a higher margin business with fewer headaches.

Â In your other thread, Acole hit the nail on the head -- we're exchanging knowledge here to exploit inefficient markets. Â I have neither the time nor the money to hope for any more than that.As for the poll, I think that you guys may have misunderstood what I am proposing. Â I'm not trying to change the nature of the forum - I think that's it's strength.

Â Or if Ebay counterfeiters started to find that profits were going down, down, down... ) Â The only changes to the forum would be to preserve the integrity of the membership - which would impact current members only in that their memberships would be so much more valuable.
