Yeah, I realized that early on, but thanks for the reminder.
It's not about how much I have already spent, it's about whether I think the product justifies the asking price. It a personal perspective thing, but some of these brackets are coming out at around 170 dollars, even though it's just aluminium tubing and sheet.
I could respond with a justification that was long and detailed and ultimately boring. But it would be bound to rub someone up the wrong way and I have no desire to get into a slaging match over such a simple question.
As I say, it's a personal perspective, we all have them and are equally entitled to them.
