And I'll putmy money where my mouth is, can the staff here do the same right now? No, right now thier credibility is HIGHLY in question. And posting to other forums ensures this crime doesn't get swept under the rug by flamers and mods.
1. MikeC isn't researching each price. If you've got a problem with the prices listed, take it up with Pricegrabber.com, the search engine that's bringing back those hits. Search engines aren't perfect and its supposed to be more of a "helping hand" to those who are interested.

2. Do you think this site is making much money, if any? This isn't MikeC's job. He's kind enough to provide us with a decent site and forums and probably doesn't get enough cash in ad revenue to even keep the site running. That means that its coming out of his pocket. He's got a job and a family that come first, so if he can't verify each price that the Pricegrabber search engine brings back...I think you can cut him some slack.
