Sorry fan girl...but shipping cost, and time for that matter, is almost as important as the price of the media. The bottom line is the key here.
If someone, for example, says Tower has xx blu ray for $10, but fails to mention the $10 shipping...it misses the entire point of the thread.
If shipping wasn't talked about or included in the discussion, then there would be 3x the replies asking about that very thing and complaining why the poster didn't include it.
I agree we can get off on tangents sometimes, but I see it as a small price to pay to make sure everyone has ALL the information before making a buying decision.
Just my 2 cents...
