Is that bullying? I thought it was just a legitimate difference of perspective. The fact that there are still places that the West hasn't managed to impose its bizarre proscriptivist ideas about IP rights is a mark in their favor, as far as I'm concerned.

Maybe in other subforums, but New People Start Here is where we practice playing nice. And in any case I really do think super-prioritization of IP rights is kind of creepy, even as an IP creator myself, so I'm glad there are alternate views in different parts of the world to keep us questioning them.

If you utilize Bricklink just try and play around with the refine search settings to save yourself a headache. You can control, for example, the seller's location (good for simplicity's sake if you're in the U.S.) or Shipping Destination (good for small countries with low seller counts).
