daily gripe

What grinds my gears is that in today's world, when one buys current comics at 2.99, 3.99, etc. soon as you buy it its damn near worth nothing.

I'll leave the sites name out of it, however I tried to sell over 70 comics and what they were offering was a little over 30 dollars when it was totalled. Now...when a site says they are fair in prices when buying collections or issues of collections from'd expect the prices to be fair. I compared some of the comics that I have (let it be known that my comics are in pretty good condition, I'd grade them F-VF) with the same grade of comics that the site is selling and let it be known they're trying to sell the same comics 200%-400% what they offered me. WTF kind of crap is that???

It just pisses me off because my tastes for comics have become more refined, and when I try to sell the ones I don't have passion for I just get

Obviously golden age, silver age, and bronze age comics are worth what they are because of the scarcity/rarity, however this is pretty disconcerting when they charge so much now, and the costumer can't even expect some type of reasonable return.
