The thing about shipping costs are that they are not the same for everyone. A store or record company often has a corporate account, so shipping a package costs much less that for the normal person shipping a package. I have had packages from Powell's books in Portland that were heavier and a fraction of the cost, for example.
At any rate, my original comment was commiserating with a wish that the band was still on Profound Lore. Shipping costs are one of the reasons for that.
I have already placed my order and paid the shipping.
My buddy and I order together to try to save on some shipping costs, and many times the price difference between 1 copy and 2 is only a small increase. That's not the case with the bigcartel sites from my experience.
Lastly, the downvote thing was meant as a sarcastic, nostagic, playful jab. Seems like your yelp comment is just meant to bait, and I won't take part in any further back and forth with insults.
