And FWIW, Adorama is doing me the favor of collecting the Sales Tax allegedly I owe and charging $1414.29. Here is what Amazon charges:

Order summary
Items: $1,299.00
Shipping & handling: $7.99
Total before tax: $1,306.99
Estimated tax to be collected: $78.42
Order total: $1,385.41

hmm, where is the extra bucks going?

Hmmm, I just put the same item in my cart, and no sales tax is calculated, no shipping fee. Delivered price is $1299. Click on the tax exempt link and it reads "We are required by law to collect sales tax on orders shipped to New York and New Jersey."

Where are you having the camera shipped?

Sounds like a bug; I tried it and no sales tax.
Maybe you could email me with details of the browser and operating system you are using, plus your zip code, and I'll have our IT department recreate your order and check it out: Helen@adorama.com

As we have come to expect, Helen is taking care of tracking down what appears to be a glitch in the system.

Unfortunately, it appears the f-word has gotten so commonplace that it's considered appropriate for posting pretty much everywhere on the web, even on a forum that should be considered family oriented. At least that's the way I've always considered the FM forum.

I agree with you, Dan. I reported the use of this particular phrase back on day one, and I guess it's OK with Fred.

Well, guys, I apologize if I've offended your sensitivities Next time I'll link to my post with a NSfFV (Not Safe for Family Viewing), and that way you all won't have to worry about being offended

If you hate our government so much your 1) more than welcome to try to change it or 2) move to another country. Nobody is forcing you to stay.

Let me just say, Ben, I love my Country, I signed the check in defense of my Country and its Constitution. There is, however, much in my view to be desired about the government. And indeed I will work however diligently to change it. So, you, Sir, jcolwell and Dan might want to give serious consideration to starting another thread here in which you can take me to task for whatever you'd care to.

I'd like to keep this one for the purpose of updating folks about the issue of Sales Tax being charged by Adorama - which, more than likely, is a software glitch that Helen is in the process of having checked out. (I have now removed the offensive, apolitically correct speech from my initial post, so, no one needs to worry about being offended)

I am not a friend to a very energetic government. It is always oppressive.

I never made any comment on your like or dislike of the government. And I don't see the use of vulgar language to be an issue of political correctness. My comment was mainly a lamentation over what has apparently become socially acceptable on the internet, and this forum in particular.

Gee, a curse and a lambasting of the government caused people to respond. I'm shocked.

It's pretty disingenuous to suggest that you want to keep the post to discussion of Adorama's taxes when your original post references the "bleeping government."
