Thanks so much for your incredibly detailed and well-written response. I hope our exchange - out in the open - adds value to thread and the community.
Your post helped me see it's not nearly as complicated to set up an enthusiast barter system as I had imagined, though still a massive, daunting undertaking. This was definitely not something I figured was anywhere in anyone's todo list for the foreseeable future, but I figured I'd ask.
Also, what's OCR?
The JW example is appropriate. JW Blue is significantly better than Black (I also like my whiskey). I can tell the difference when drinking them neat, but less so as they are adulterated (with ice or mixers). JW Blue may have a unique subtlety. An attuned enthusiast could make an educated decision as to whether the price difference was worth it. The price difference is probably as a result of the difference in quality AND label color - blue dye costs so much more ;-).
If someone is perfectly happy their ballpoint pen, the smoothness of a fountain pen may be noticeable but not worth the price difference. And when we go beyond $1,000, we're talking about aesthetics and brand almost exclusively.
ps . When is this kind of discussion board coming to other communities (writing?).
