Cory, you're losing me man. On one hand you say that consumers should buy directly from the developer, and on the other, you say we have the right to take advantage of a good deal. :faint:
Okay, here's what I mean:

Normally 3rd party prices and developer prices are the same. When that is the case, always support the developer.

When there's a flash sale, and you can get it for cheap, why not take advantage of that.

In this case, T+S has incorrectly voided the VAT, so the deal isn't legitimate and will be taken down very soon - you got in just before that, so you're lucky.

I don't have a problem with that, except you keep telling me that I got lucky, like I should be feeling some sort of guilt or something. Or am i reading too deep into this?

You did get lucky! That doesn't mean you have to feel guilty, it's just something that rarely happens and you happened to catch it out of a bunch of people who didn't. You haven't cost Strezov any money - they'll be reimbursed out of TS's pocket, which is their fault for making the mistake in the first place.

You shouldn't! So back to Afflatus, since you were sitting on the fence this entire time, please let us know your thoughts after you spend some quality time with the library.
Thanks, and will do! Ironically, the whole time I was thinking, "Man, if that exchange rate wasn't there...", so I guess it strangely worked out.

Thanks for clarifying. :thumbsup:

Marketing makes up a major part of many top, legitimate company budgets.
Each company chooses how much to impact their total costs with their Marketing commitment..
I am more than a bit put-off by posts here from one gaining my increasing respect and trust.
There seems to be notable misunderstanding about the role and proper compensation for source creators/providers and their choices of marketing outlets.
Bottom line … for me … this library is not even close to being an essential addition. To save 'real' dollars with T+S has almost pushed me over the top.
If arguments here suggest that I am just one step away from 'pirated' software, then I can easily pass on T+S offer and not purchase Afflatus until much later.

Baarrff ! :sick:

Not exactly sure what the opening of that comment was getting at, but I've made it pretty clear on this thread that buying from the developer is best when the price is the same, unless you're a new customer perusing TS for example, while getting a good deal when it's available is recommended. TS has done wrong by Strezov this time and the sale has been removed as of 10 minutes ago.

Just checked and noted this usd price increase. T+S has lost credibility quickly, and net loss for Strezov Afflatus sale..
My opening comment was related to 'trust' (highly misplaced) that there is a relationship among many Providers and multiple 3rd Pty outlets. In this case there are clearly some 'misdeeds' and T+S loses my confidence.
Kudos to VI-C and this Thread for providing global transparency to these seemingly minor transgressions.
