Software: Do They Want My Money?

Trading Post sure makes it hard to place an advertisement on-line! First, I have to install Macromedia Flash and restart my browser. Having done that, I was expecting something really special for this wonderful Flash interface. What I go was a UI that works worse than a normal web page. It takes a minute to load (I still only have dial-up) and only has to display seven pages of forms. When I have to submit an image, I can't cut and paste the path into the text field (I use 2xExplorer's Alt-C function) but I have to use the Windows file browser to navigate to the folder containing my file then press the Open button. Ho-ho-ray.
