I agree. My collection of thousands of components isn't worth cataloging and
putting prices on. Besides, someone will eventually say "you're asking 25 cents
for this part but I can but it at XXX for 24 cents."
However, if someone posts a note like "I need a XXXXX, does anyone have one?"
I can usually find it in my collection. I've also had cases where someone said
what they were looking for, and myself and others were able to suggest more
suitable alternatives. This couldn't have happened if the person simply looked
for the exact part on a website.
Just post what you want and hopefully someone can provide it.
