I am definitely with Brad on this one. It is one thing to give or sell
something to a list member for their own use but something else to give or
sell to a dealer who is using the lists generosity to make a profit.
This is taking advantage of the lists good nature. Had bushwacker said the
heads were wanted for a commercial venture I may still provide the goods but
wouldn't feel as bad if I had to buy my own head back at a higher price a
couple of weeks later!
