Further to that well noted comment.

I have a list member friend. He was recently trying to fine a frame decal for a frame set. He e-mailed around, and he called around only to find that no decal supplier would supply a decal without conditions. They obviously had the decal but would not part with one. Why? I call it the "I have got mine" syndrome. These people had the decals, but would not part with them unless my friend refinished the entire frame. How about $500 for a decal? It is always their choice as sellers, but it sets a tone for the CR community that, in my humble opinion...stinks.

Very self centered in a community that is noted for helping on another without an attitude.

Not good.

A bit of constructive self analysis is a healthy thing. We can change.
