I'll say a little about this topic and then I'm done.
When I returned home after the convention, I was upset about something and I felt it was important enough to share with the bulletin board. If you take what I said personally, then I think you should re-evaluate your own part in it. What I'm trying to say, is that my statement was just that, ... a statement based on information supplied to me; nothing personal was meant. I completely understand that dealers will buy and sell chips (as they should) - in fact, up to half of my collection is from dealers AND I'M PERFECTLY HAPPY! But at the same time, there are people who will take advantage of certain situations -- and I was convinced (based on information supplied to me) that this was one of those situations. I'm sorry if you're tired of dealer slams; if you're somebody who is honest and above board..., then ignore it or stop reading these messages, otherwise FACE THE FACTS!
