Perhaps you should saturate your display's color a bit. It might be helpful.

Small charge seems reasonable. If somebody is willing to send you OOo on
a CD for, say, 5 bucks, it is not bad. But asking your for more than $10
bucks and that too only for the discs is IMHO too much.

That is capitalism. The objective in today's system is to make money. In
capitalism one can ask for any amount of money for anything. And if the
interested person is willing to pay that amount, good for the seller. It
has to do with willingness of the others to pay, nothing to do with
morals or conscience or good faith; as long as what you are doing is
legal, there is nothing wrong in it. Some people do not like it, even in
the US, the father of capitalism in modern world. But this is just way
it is, at least it was till a few weeks ago when the US govt. started
nationalizing its industry and financial markets.
