Depends on your perspective. The prevailing Maestronet polemic resents anyone earning anything from violin making

I've not noticed much resentment towards makers making a living, on this site. But a lot of resentment toward dealers making money trading in violins. And the stupidity of any customer paying retail for an old violin, from such a dealer

What @deans said, plus some resentment towards music-store people who charge for sanding bridge blank feet, and calling that a "set up", like they actually cut something, on a trade fiddle that they'd marked through the roof, already..

@jacobsaunders, nobody here that I've noticed has ever done anything but praise your restorations that you've posted.  :)

Yes, there will be some resentment towards those who claim to be "in our trade", but have no clue what they are doing. But none of this is anthing new.
