As do we. Earlier in my time here (how did ten years pass by already?!), I
believe I may have made one purchase which I'd have been wiser to have not
made, in terms of not adequately assessing the likelihood of
"bootleggedness." But I would never knowingly or flippantly acquire
something dubious.

Thanks to all of you who've provided comments about this company. I didn't
even browse their listings much, since there was one particular title this
prof was after, and, truth be told, I love having you guys out there so
that I can fire off an inquiry, knowing that people far more knowledgable
than I are going to weigh in with the inside scoop. It provides me with
very nice backup indeed when I provide a prof with an unpopular response,
you know?

(Am I the only one who looks at Videolib as a resource in this way? You
know, quoting Gary and Dennis and Jessica and...? :-))
