bazzer: For what it's worth, I interpreted his comment as intended.
Imagine in real life, you know something costs $3. You tell your friend you need said part, he says "Oh, they have it at that shop down the road, it's $12.98." You might not say "$12.98? Damn!"? I suppose you'd say "$12.98 for a 10cm cable? This is overpriced!"
If I said "$12.98? Damn!", I also wouldn't expect my friend to reply with "$12.98 is too expensive for you? Are you poor? Maybe you shouldn't have a computer at all. Oh, and stop going to McDonalds!"
