Let me start by saying I appreciate your civil, prompt, honest reply. I wish that moderators at other boards I frequent were similarly responsive to members' questions.
Am I wrong, then, in thinking that international members still get their sub-$20 shipping expenses paid for? I didn't see anything on the forms excluding that....
Also, I wonder how much revenue will be gained by disallowing this thread. In the past, I and others have made a special point to use DVDtalk links when, e.g., BFL wasn't a factor (as is now the case with any sub-$100 orders.) Part of the reason I was careful to do this was because I appreciated that you were arguably sacrificing your site's financial interests for the greater good of certain members, which struck me as very gracious.
Of course, you may have good evidence of this revenue loss which I do not have.
Thanks for letting me speak my mind on this! And please, should the site ever reach serious financial jeopardy, give us a warning--I am not alone, I'm sure, in being willing to help you out. I'd even donate a "membership fee," as I've benefited enormously from this site.
PS-now if only DVDtalk could nab CH as a sponser, I'd be clicking through your links constantly.
