I totally agree with you John - I quite often sell things to guys 
for a price I know will move it fast. If they turn around and 
sell it for more, what do I care?  It happens all the time!

If I bought something for $20 amd sell it for $50 and the
buyer then sells it for $100, WHY should I grumble?
