bill.d.trav is correct. Massdrop started with good intentions and offered drops with very little risk because of the demand from us. However, it became very successful, got greedy (typical), and started gouging us. This makes them not unlike actual online retailers, such as ebay, Newegg and Amazon. Yet they are still not being taxed like the other retailers, because they are only pretending to be middle-men instead of an actual retailer.
For their greed, i hope this changes and they start getting their thieving asses taxed. Yes I know this will make their prices go up. But at least this way i can just buy from Amazon and Newegg and won't be forced to give these greedy bastards my money. Then a new company will come along with their business plan as a middle man, but remain true to their roots...and i'll buy from them. You should be ashamed of yourselves Massdrop.
