however asking them to continue to sell a product at
less than their sales fulfillment cost seems like an
express road to distaster. Maybe that is what is needed.
When Karen told us their fulfillment costs were over
$5.00 she did not tell us (a) how much the fulfillment
costs were for a $5.00 sale, nor have they ever told us
what their fulfillment costs are on a per transaction basis

My guess is that it is cheaper to the SA to give away
standards than it is to sell them for $5.00 apiece.
Therefore my vote is to eliminate the 6 month waiting period.
