With the number of damaged systems received, I too would not have offered to defray any shipping costs that were, upon your own admission, your mistake. I also recall something to the effect of the quantity of cases that were eventually shipped being quite a bit less than the original offering, while the cost for the systems didn't reduce. If I had been in John's position at that point, I'd have walked out on the deal. I don't know whether they were sent damaged or were damaged in transit, but if I recall 3 were badly smashed (write-offs) and a few more with unsightly cracks that probably won't find homes either. Pricing structure - doesn't matter. The motive is to get decent systems to collectors and to cover cost/expenses. It doesn't look like this is going to happen at any price. I don't see the purpose in holding onto 3 good bezels as the broken mating counterparts are elsewhere. The original intent was for you to unload all these in that group buy, or they were going to be donated, trashed, or whatever. You sound like a very disingenuous, unhappy, and unpleasant individual. I hope you don't hang around here for too long.
