Calumet Photo lists the Phase One P65+ Digital Back with Hasselblad H Mount and Classic Warranty at U.S. $39,990.00. Design Freak is poorly informed and did not take the time to check out the selling price. His post is entirely out of line. If his price were correct, I don't think that his post would have been out of place, since it would be an insult to the intelligence of the readers to ask a price significantly over list and anyone with such effrontery should be called out.
Anyway, I don't see what David Westphal has much to complain about. He apparently sold his camera in short order. Anyone who is driven away from the forum by a few rude crackpots is pretty thin skinned.
I wouldn't say thin skinned. I'd say it's more about the quality of the posts. Look at two of posts here. One guy says if he was rich man and then you've got this other guy design freak with his posts, and this is just a for sale post which really is nothing of substance and still it attracts these types of posts. Talk about sabotage of a forum that literally reaches around the globe. The tremendous potential for quality and informative discussions around the art and science of photography on this forum compromised by these types of posts.
Whatever, I sold my back. What do I care?
That being said, I appreciate the LL folks who run this as this is the place to list items for sale.
