He's clearly going to continue this, he's been doing it for a very long time. The mods won't deal with it so I'll be on my way again, this joint ain't worth the trouble.
The thing that baffles me the most is how obsessed they seem to be with telling us how x or y bicycle component is available for extremely cheap in malaysia when it's just not pertinent information for those of us in the rest of the world.

What's even more baffling is folks who can't distinguish between Malaysia and Indonesia, and who think that the world revolves around them and that if it ain't relevant or interesting to them, then it ain't relevant or interesting at all or to anyone else. 😎

We can well imagine that some folks will be perturbed at being shown prices for it brings about unpleasant cognitive dissonance between, on one hand, the real price at or near the place of manufacture, and, on the other, the high prices that they are accustomed to paying and think as normal and indicative of quality. And on top of that, there's Sour Grapes 🍇 too. 😉

Regardless of what country you can purchase components for very inexpensively in, it's not "perturbing" it's just not useful information.
