No, you can see in the top right corner at whom a reply is addressed, wasn’t meant for you, sorry.
Happy anniversary, btw!
That certainly plays a part, though don’t forget that many of us are sellers and buyers so they probably have a balanced view on it.
I think a big part of it is that many of us forum participants probably don’t just or mostly sell or buy $5 gigs, which means we don’t actually feel it.
$2 on a $5 purchase certainly is a big percentage, no doubt about that, but again, the argument holds that the costs $5 orders incur are disproportionate to bigger orders too.
Or, another way of looking at it, when I order something very heavy that costs me $500, maybe shipping cost is even included as that works out for the company, but if I order something very heavy that costs $5, I might have to pay $25 shipping cost, and would get it, too.
