    Why complain? Because we know the businesses have done this to spite Internet shoppers, to punish them, to "get even" with them, that's why.

    That is why I will spite these businesses right back, by avoiding them with fervor.

    However, I may try the letter-writer's very good photograph idea first.

    Why complain about paying sales tax? We should have been paying all along. It's the law. Every day we fail to make ourselves right with the law our debt to society increases.

    Maybe Utah believes in amnesty and won't send the auditors after us. We certainly don't want to be treated the way we treat others.

    There are some products, however, which consumers are willing to send someone to pick up out of state and pay the applicable taxes and transport costs simply because they're not available here or are prohibitively expensive and inconvenient.
