I'd love something like (many people need to learn the definition of the word 'like') this. However, I don't want to put it all together or have blank keycaps.

If you want, I can sell you my previous Ergodox, fully assembly and working. About the blank keycaps, you can still write or put some stickers with the letters on them.

It's too easy to come off a prick online. Also, if you do a lot of research on ergo boards, the ergodox is rather unique in some ways. The indiegogo campaign is a very recent and one time thing. Anyway, enjoy your new board!

Well, in all fairness, the title of the buy is "...Keyboard Kit". Like you walked into an Ikea and said "I want this, but I don't want to put it together", to which someone might reasonably respond, "Why don't you go to another furniture store?".
If you wanted to buy one pre-assembled, you could have simply asked that and probably gotten a better response, than to come off sounding offensive to begin with.
Also, to solve the blank keycap problem, check out the Granite Keycap set. I am typing on that on an ergodox right now and it's really nice. I recommend them!

No. I simply stated I would love a keyboard like this that was not a kit. It is nothing like your scenario. As to the keycaps they do not look standard--hence the asking of keycap sets that would fit.

Indiegogo has a campaign for a fully assembled one with a 2yr warranty. They have the option to buy with printed caps. Also, it is based on the original Ergodox design with TRRS cable to connect the two halves, the case is going to be molded ABS.

Actually you did not "simply ask" that, you might have though or felt that, but its not what you typed out in the comment field.
As for the keycaps, the indiegogo compain will supply an appropriate set of keycaps with printed lables if you pay for that. (Read the backer levels carefully). As for me I want localized caps anyway, so I intend to buy an 88-key set from WASDkeyboards, check of all three 1x1 compatibility options, and order some custom 1x1.5 and 1x2 caps. (after I have had my ergodox for a while and know how I want the layout).

Sometimes I wish MD had a downvote button, This is for a people who enjoy keyboards and the experience of putting it together themselves. i'm sure there are pre-assembled keyboards that are similar to this somewhere online.

No, you didn't "simply ask where you could buy" one. Your exact statement was:
"I'd love something like this. However, I don't want to put it all together or have blank keycaps."
to which @anro 's response is quite accurate.

I don't think insulting helps in proving your point. Acknowledge the fact that text can easily be interpreted a different way than intended, since no tone, sarcasm, wonder, hostility, etc. can be transferred through it. Even if it seems clear, it might not be. Perhaps people understood your initial, implied question as hostile. Happens, but still no reason to make as big of a deal out of it as you do with insults... See @shinpai.na reply. He says the exact same thing.

Thanks for the laugh, you are quite amusing.
The best part is that was the first actual question you have posted in this discussion, everything else has been statements. (For clarity, "not sure why that was so hard for other people.." is structured as a question, but is missing the question mark. Nothing else was even structured as a question).

@Komplexx If you want something like the Ergodox, may I suggest the following... Kinesis Advantage - Similar layout, but as a single unit with key wells. Kinesis Freestyle - 2 piece keyboard, row-based, rubber dome keys. Matias Ergo Pro - 2 piece keyboard, row-based, Matias mechanical switches, 3rd production run on pre-order.

there is no point that needs to be proven.. you're all a bunch of fucking morons.. to begin with I commented that I'd love a keyboard like this--an end fucking product. Not a kit to toy around with and put together and the first moron replies in expected moronic fashion and received a bunch of thumbs for it. Boo the fuck hoo.

I don't think you understand. The two things you said you don't want are directly related to this keyboards primary advantage: customization.
If you just want a ergonomic keyboard, there are plenty of them out there (Maltron, Kinesis, TEK, etc...). Maybe do a little research for yourself instead of demanding that other people to do it for you then cussing them out when they don't. At this point you are just being a jackass.

and you're being a fucking tool.. still don't understand the definition of like.. it was a remark about my thoughts.. maybe I should have said I WANT A SPLIT FUCKING KEYBOARD SIMILAR IN BUILD QUALITY TO THE KEYBOARD IN THIS SPECIFIC DROP. And I didn't fucking ask anyone to research it for me.. I thanked that guy when he listed indiegogo was thanking him for understanding my comment because he's not a fucking idiot like the rest of the peanut gallery.

LOL, ok. It has been pretty funny watching you go completely unhinged over a silly little comment.
I'm curious, why are you hanging around? Do you really think anyone here actually cares about your rants? Do you expect anyone to pat you on the back and say "you're right, everything you say is relevant and interesting"?

If you want other options besides the indigogo for the ergodox ez, other keyboards worth checking out include the Truly Ergonomic Keyboard (non-kit) and Kinesis Advantage (non-kit).
You can also find the ergodox kits assembled on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?&_nkw=ergodox&).

I saw another offer, but I too would be willing to sell a completed (original) Ergodox... Depending on the layout you want, I can do labeled keys. I would need to figure out the price I would be willing to sell them for, but if you are interested, I would calculate that. Basically, I will sell it for cost because I'd like to get in on the infinity version.

The most hilarious part is, that as much as he claims someone was offensive to him, that claim can be turned around as well. That's what I meant with my reply to him, which was absolutely neutral, yet replied by hostility. I guess someone has much bigger issues than the difference between a keyboard kit and a keyboard.

Indeed! Just yesterday I wrote a comment to an answer on stackoverflow, that might improve the answer, and got sort of yelled at that just because I don't like it it doesn't mean the same for others. Was merely a suggestion, with a sound argument, that was never addressed. Well, sad stuff.

It's also not only about being/appearing friendly. It's also the insults that came later on with it. You can be "not friendly", like neutral or something, but verbally offensive isn't helping either. At best it invalidates your own argumentations and points. How valid can a point be, when only very few really get it and the others are 'fucking idiots'? I had this once, someone told me that they know how to talk and phrase stuff and that clearly I must be wrong because I misunderstood. (It was addressed to me personally) If I don't understand and it is addressed to me, then this "I know how to talk and phrase stuff" is ridiculously wrong.
