    Jamie. Yes you may be frustrated but theres no point having a go about his prices...The same with any seller....they have priced things the way they do because they have their own thoughts and agenda. Its sometimes dawns on them after a while but often doesnt as they have their own ideas about integrity and pricing. Of course they are going to be defensive as you have mounted a direct challenge. Ok it may be crazy and exhorbitant but you are essentially calling him a rip off merchant.

    I have dealt with German dealers for parts and they have offered great prices and a superb service. They even have an english page and reply in english. I shouldnt even have to mention that I know great German people

    You will feel good about yourself if you email and offer a full apology. The war was 72 years ago and it doesnt define modern Germany or us now. His German nationality has nothing to do with the issue

    We all make mistakes but you should do the right thing now because we dont want any "dont mention the war" stereotypes. It makes us look small minded and time has moved on.

    You will feel better about putting it right as I feel you have made a real error there.

    Marco, what ARE we allowed to post in this thread? I have had a couple of posts disappear, and I have just watched another one - should have been #50 - vanish before my eyes. And it was a very pertinent one too. There are very probably others too.
    The fact is, it is a bit of a non-thread. It isn't really about hi-fi, or even hi-fi prices. In reality, the thread kicked off with an ill-judged anecdote which the OP presumably thought would amuse enough people to make it worthwhile. However, some people found it cringe-worthy, shaming or even offensive. So how are they to respond? Pretend they find it funny? Pretend it is about football? Don't post at all (which rather defeats the object if it being a forum)? Or what? I know you don't like overtly political comment on the forum, Marco, but where the original post is of an overtly political nature (ie. a story about calling a German hi-fi dealer "Fritz" and talking about the war), what's a girl to do?

    Ignore content you don't like (which isn't directed at you), and most of all, don't inflame a situation by adding to it, darling!
